KUALA LUMPUR (Jan 26): The official holidays for the Lunar New Year may be over and many folks are back at work, but the festivities continue at home and in the malls as it ain’t really over until Chap Goh Mei rolls in (why mess with tradition when it allows you to have fun for as long as possible).

So, if you have not been to the local malls to check out the decorations they have splashed out for the Year of the Rabbit, there is still time to snap some pics with friends, family or that significant other.
