Here you are Smile It is a very narrow lane, at the end of which is a doorway that leads to the Khoo Kongsi. That door is locked most of the time and it is only during Chinese New Year celebrations (when the crowd is big) that Khoo Kongsi opens that door to help disperse human traffic.

Oh, thank you for the pic. I remember my late dad used to drive us thru this little lane and told us that it's our great great grandfather's lane and his involvement in the founding of Khoo Kongsi. There was a Soo Hong Estate too which is now Taman Kristal behind Phor Tay school.
