(Subdued) 2020 Jalan Alor Chap Goh Mei Festival

Normally there are lots of acrobatic lion dancers, fireworks/firecrackers, a sound stage w/ singers etc sponsored by Loong Kee Dried Meats etc for Chap Goh Mei (15th night of Chinese New Year) BUT I think this was just an excuse not to have it this year: “The Hawkers and Dealers Association of Jalan Alor called off the festival after a local daily reported on Friday (Jan 7) that a China tourist staying at a condominium near Jalan Alor tested positive for the novel coronavirus” according to The Star (https://www.thestar.com.my/news/nation/2020/02/08/jalan-alor-chap-goh-mei-festival-cancelled-due-to-coronavirus-fears-says-organiser)
