KINILENS | This is the Year of the Metal Ox, but it's been a quiet Chinese New year celebration.

Traditional celebrations such as house visiting, as well as lion dance and opera performances, are prohibited or limited during the occasion as part of the SOP to combat the Covid-19 pandemic safety measures.

Lunar New Year decorations such as vibrant red lanterns and paper cuttings grace inside malls, alleys and city streets. 

Bustling crowds that are typically seen in these places during this time of year have disappeared due to coronavirus fears.

In KLCC's Aquarium however, the Lion dance took a different twist by going underwater.
