SHINING CREATURES...Eleven-year-old Melissa Loh is looking at decorative gold plated brass goats on sale at her parents' prayer paraphernalia shop in Jalan Masjid Kapitan Keling, Penang. 

As the Chinese New Year next month ushers in the Year of the Goat, many decorative items using the theme of the goat are now being sold. 

Melissa's mother Lim Say Saik said these items were mostly imported from Hong Kong and China. 

“Some Chinese will use these items in their houses for feng shui purposes while others put them up just to decorate their homes for the festive season,” she said. – STARpic BY GOH GAIK LEE
