Bukit Cina 马六甲三保井丙申年2016年景布置盛会
If anyone is to connect China with Malaysia, his thought would go back in time when the Sultan Mansur Syah built a palace for his princess, Hang Li Poh.
A little hill called Bukit Cina, the community expanded through Lorong Bukit Cina where traditional welcoming of the Chinese New Year is celebrate tonight.
About 500 Chinese youths who accompanied the royal bride, Princess Hang Liu, built their homes on the hill. Many younger Malaysians do not know that Bukit Cina include Bukit Tempurong, Bukit Gedong and Bukit Tinggi.
Bukit Tempurong is where you can enjoy the unique night market from about 5 p.m. on Sunday.
The Chinese living around this area, covering Lorong Bukit Cina, Egerton Road, Campon Bukit China, Banda Kaba represent the “San Pao Jing” community.
This community still preserve the traditions inherited from their forefathers, a value, I have observed for 50 years at least.
The lighting of the Chinese Lanterns is graced by several Chinese leaders and one of the prominent one is, Datuk Wira Gan Boon Leong, the founder of Jonker Walk.
