Perak Hainan Association (PHA)

Hainan Community’s CNY Celebration


Perak Hainan Association (PHA)Over 800 members from the four Hainan Associations in Ipoh jointly held their Chinese New Year celebration dinner on the fifth day of the Lunar New Year.

This year’s celebration, organised by the Perak Hainan Association (PHA) was an easy-going evening with lots of fun and gaiety during which the members tossed ‘yee sang’ for prosperity, distributed ang pow to children, did the line dance and karaoke-d together. Even the chairman of the PHA, Mr Goh Seng Ho (pic 2nd left), participated in a magic show for the members.

The Hainanese are well known for their distinctive cuisine hence their lucky draw prizes included Old Town white coffee and Yim Kok Kai (salted baked chicken).

During the celebration, the Perak Hainan Association announced the countdown for their 100th year anniversary which falls on July 3.
