Kung Hei Fat Choi

On the occassion of the beginning of the lunar year on monday, I'd like to share this pictures of two colorful landmarks which now stand on magsaysay avenue (formerly Uyanguren) that mark the long standing presence of our filipino-chinese brothers and sisters in my city of Davao. These two archways (the Arch of Unity and the Arch of Friendship) greet motorists and pedestrians as they enter Chinatown, Davao City.

Finishing touches on the Arch of Unity on Magsaysay Avenue (facing Magsaysay Park) were still being done in preparation for the three-day First Davao Chinese New Year Festival which will start today. It is reported that festival activities include a chinese film viewing, night market, concert and fireworks display via live satellite feed.

Kung Hei Fat Choi to all my friends in blog!!! A blessed year of the ox!
