Today is Chinese New Year, or Imlek, throughout Indonesia and the world. The Chinese communities in the major cities throughout Indonesia, Jakarta, Semarang, Surabaya, Bandung and Yogyakarta, will be holding street parades featuring Barong Sai and many more puppets dancing in the streets and in klentengs (Chinese temples).
To all my Chinese friends in Indonesia, and to all Chinese residents, I would like to say…
‘SELEMAT TAHUN BARU CINA’
‘GONG XI FAT CAI’
