Mellow Yellow Monday #56

A row of 19th century Chinese shophouses, in the oldest street of Kuching, Sarawak.


It is still a holiday here in conjunction with the celebration of Lunar New Year. This year, it falls on February 14th, welcoming the vividly lucky, lively and engaging Golden Tiger Year. I would love to post something about the tiger, but it seems that I only have more red pictures in my picture galleries. Perhaps it will be perfect for Ruby Tuesday tomorrow. :)

I hope you'll have a wonderful Monday!!

Reminds me somewhat of an historic Chinese town, Locke, in California. The buildings are very similar though the colors in Locke are very faded now. Locke is like a living ghost town.
