Colorful, exciting, dramatic, funny, suspenseful. What could this be? The newest Pixar film? No, it’s the traditional Lion Dance for Chinese New Year. I really, really wanted to witness an acrobatic lion dance in Malaysia in which the performers leap from high pole to high pole. But, with my talent for missing things, I kept missing lion dances.

Other travelers and tourists told me about the amazing lion dances they saw in Kuala Lumpur, but I faced multiple rain cancellations and changing schedules. But my lion hunt continued. Was I successful? Did I see one of Malaysia’s famous lion dance troupes in action? Was all my bad luck chased away? Am I ready for a lucky and prosperous 2019? You’ll have to watch the video to find out.
