Namsangol Hanok Village is a cultural village with five restored traditional Korean houses and huge garden. Visitors can experienced various traditional stuff (arts & games etc.) on normal days; and it’s a popular place for the locals to celebrate Seollal, with extra activities being held during the festive period.

Sharing a CNY song (a rare English one) by Malaysian songwriter Lleon. Simple tune, cute animation, fitting theme (it’s the year of tiger in Chinese calendar)…

Today (Feb 9) officially marks the end of CNY 2009; CNY is traditionally celebrated from New Year’s Eve to the 15th day on the New Year, each day with its own significance.
Chinese these days don’t have the luxury to celebrate the entire festival though; most people would have resumed their daily (working) routine by the 5th day of CNY, and waited until the last day (the Lantern Festival) for some final celebrations.
Happy Chinese New Year once more… best wishes to everyone.
