CNY decoration on the façade of Harley-Davidson of Petaling Jaya

Chinese New Year (CNY) of The Doggie 2018 officially begins on February 16, and I have decided to document the 15-day celebration with none other than the Canon EOS 5D Mark IV Digital SLR (DSLR) equipped with the EF 24-70mm f/4L IS USM zoom lens.

Technically, the CNY celebration is 16 days long as the biggest celebration actually start on the Eve, which for Year 2018 is on February 15. The first day of the Dog Year is on the 16th.

The main entrance to Stronghold, which sells Zero’s classically-designed motorcycles from Japan.

This daily pictorial series will see new photos being uploaded throughout the 16-day celebration plus an extra day bonus, with some snapshots I came across on Valentine’s Day while visiting the Gasket Alley, home to 3 dealers of motorcycle brands, Moto Guzzi, Harley-Davidson PJ and Zero Engineering.

There’s practically nothing related to V-Day at Gasket Alley as the place is more geared towards the CNY crowd since the beginning of the week although there’s plenty of young adults celebrating the occasion over dinner at 1 of the 2 F&B outlets there.

An old style Shell petrol kiosk is seen here as one of the attractions in Gasket Alley amidst the CNY lanterns in the background
