KUALA LUMPUR (Jan 18): In less than one month, we will be ushering in the Lunar New Year 2021. This year, the market might seem a bit quiet, no thanks to the surging number of daily Covid-19 new cases and the implementation of the movement control order (MCO) 2.0.

Nevertheless, it is hard not to feel a sense of anticipation for better tomorrows as the festive season draws nigh, especially in the Chinese-community local markets, where stalls trading Chinese New Year (CNY) goods can be seen popping up.

A stroll in the OUG market, Kuala Lumpur, today has seen many shoppers coming out for daily necessities, as well as some CNY paraphernalia and goodies for the celebration. 

Despite a considerable number of people in the market, everyone obeyed the rules – wearing face masks and keeping a safe physical distance from each other.
