月圆明镜

水调歌头

年代:【宋】 作者:【苏轼】

明月幾時有?把酒問青天。

不知天上宮闕,今夕是何年?

我欲乘風歸去,又恐瓊樓玉宇,高處不勝寒。

起舞弄清影,何似在人間。

轉朱閣,低綺戶,照無眠。

不應有恨,何事長向別時圓?

人有悲歡離合,月有陰晴圓缺,此事古難全。

但願人長久,千里共嬋娟。

“War talk by men who have been in a war is always interesting;

whereas moon talk by a poet who has not been in the moon is likely to be dull”

 Mark Twain quotes
(American Humorist, Writer and Lecturer. 1835-1910)

Yuan Xiao Festival 元宵节 ( Chap Goh Meh ) ; is a festival celebrated on the fifteenth day of the first month in the  Chinese lunar calendar. It’s called The Lantern Festival in China, so it is not to be confused with the Mid-Autumn Festival, which is sometimes also known as the “Lantern Festival” in locations such as Singapore and Malaysia.

In China, during this particular day, children go out at night to temples carrying paper lanterns and solve riddles on the lanterns (simplified Chinese: 猜灯谜; traditional Chinese: 猜燈謎; pinyin: cāidēngmí). It officially ends the Chinese New Year celebrations.

With the Chinese Lunar New Year of the Dragon only a few days away, Kuala Lumpur’s Chinatown was still very quiet, unlike yesteryear where the vibrant of the celebration could be felt a month away. This year’s festive displays pales in comparison to all the red lanterns, cherry blossoms and calligraphy banners that could be seen at every nook and corner of the street.

The Central Market 中央艺术坊 is located on Jalan Hang Kasturi, just a stone away from Chinatown on Petaling Street. It was founded in 1888 and was originally used as a wet market, while the current building was completed in 1937. It has since been classified as a Heritage Site by the Malaysian Heritage Society and it is now a landmark for Malaysian culture and heritage.

This building was built by the British who were ruling Malaya at that time and it was used as a wet market for Kuala Lumpur folks and tin miners. It was very convenient to the early city dwellers because it was within the vicinity of Klang bus stand, the hub of feeder bus service for Kuala Lumpur and the train station.

Further expansions were made in 1889, 1895, 1920 and 1921. By 1933, the expansions to the warehouse turned the market now to its present size.Hence, in the early 1980s, it was renovated and reopened for use in year 1986. Instead of being used as a wet market, it has since then became a leading arts and crafts centre in the city.
