Chinese New Year is the biggest and most significant event on the lunar calendar for the Chinese community. With celebrations spanning a total of at least 15 days, one of the most remarkable features of the festivities is the lion/dragon dance performance.
According to its annual tradition, Syeun Hotel Ipoh ushered in a brand new business year with an hour-long stellar performance of double lion and a dragon by the international award-winning champion troupe from Ipoh Chinese Chin Woo Athletic Association.
Hotel guests and members of the public joined in the festivity with the management and staff, to the delight of everyone.
The clashing of cymbals, banging of drums, crackling fireworks and prancing fierce ‘animals’ were believed to dispel negative energy, and at the same time, bring in positive vibes for a more profitable year ahead.
The pair of lions visited and blessed all the business areas of the premises, from the lobby to the offices, Garden View Coffee House, Grand Ballroom and even the kitchens.
Good fortune was also spread to well-wishers with the customary tossing of mandarin oranges by the pair of ‘lions’, evoking squeals of laughter among adults and children alike. Here’s hoping for a prosperous Year of the Metal Rat!! Gong Xi Fa Cai, Xin Nian Kuai Le! 恭喜发财！新年快乐！
