A special Chinese New Year event to usher in the Year of the Snake was hosted by Ipoh City and Country Club (ICCC) on the seventh day of the lunar New Year. According to Chinese tradition, the day is considered as “everybody’s birthday” (Ren Re in Mandarin).
This annual celebration, held at the club’s premises on Saturday, February 16, received overwhelming support from members and the public. All available tables were booked. The event was graced by Dato’ Wan Azahari, ICCC’s Liaison Committee Chairman, members of the club’s board of directors and managerial staff.
A host of interesting activities were lined up for the evening. The evening opened with a traditional double lion dance performance followed by Malaysia’s version of the popular Taiwanese girl-group, SHE and an acrobatic show by a troupe from China. Although the party was long over, revellers stayed on for a night of karaoke and dancing.
