MALACCA: It was a relief for the Jonker Street Committee when Kota Melaka MP Wong Nai Chee succeeded in getting the local city council and Majlis Tindakan Pelancongan Melaka to support the cost of street decorations and organising the Jonker Street Chinese New Year carnival.

MBMB will foot the Jonker Street electricity bill throughout the Chinese New Year period while Majlis Tindakan Pelancongan will install panel boards and steel brackets extending from the sides of buildings along the street.

Installation of the 5m by 1m brackets will ease the job of hanging 1,500 lanterns for the carnival.

Fifteen associations and societies will decorate streets in the city, towns and villages to usher in the Year of the Rat.

More than 70 activities have been lined up by the organizing committee to keep tourists and locals occupied during the carnival.

MCA president Datuk Seri Ong Ka Ting has been invited to launch the carnival on Jan 19.
