It’s the tradition of Syeun Hotel Ipoh to usher in the Lunar New Year and celebrate it in grand style on the 3rd lunar day and 2019 is no exception.
International champion troupe from Ipoh Chinese Chin Woo Athletic Association brought in four lions and a golden dragon, putting up a flawless lion & dragon dance performance, to the delight of hotel guests and members of the public who were at the venue to join in the festivity.
The presence of the fierce “animals” amidst the banging of drums, clashing of cymbals and crackling of firecrackers was to chase away whatever negative qi (energy) that dared lurk at any corner of the premises.
As you know, this is just a Chinese belief or superstition; in actual fact, we just needed an excuse to CELEBRATE! Boy, Syeun Hotel certainly did it in grand style!
Joining in the annual celebration were the proprietors, business partners, associates, management, staff, guests and well-wishers.
The first pair of lions went prancing around the hotel, blessing, in particular, business areas of the building, paying great attention to the Sales & Marketing office, because that’s the most important department! Let’s not forget the kitchen, of course, Garden View Coffee House, and business outlets on the ground floor.
Guests and well-wishers had a fun time when four lions started “throwing” mandarin oranges at them. It’s an interesting ritual akin to distributing wealth. May we be blessed with a prosperous year ahead! Gong Xi Fa Cai, Xin Nian Kuai Le!
