The year of the dog bounded in the morning of Sunday, February 18 with lions and gods of prosperity forming the annual spectacle at Meru Valley Resort, Ipoh.
More than a hundred residents and members gathered for the drum act and lion dance along with Shahzan Bahari bin Shamsul Bahari, Director of Meru Valley Resort Berhad and Florence Foo, General Manager of Meru Valley Resort Berhad. It was performed by Persatuan Naga & Singa Chiau Hooi Bee, Kuala Kangsar for the second year.
The crowd was decked out in new clothes of red hues as they thronged the resort. The young ones received blessings with gifts of hongbao (red packets with money) as a symbol of luck from the director of the resort while the rest were given oranges. The lively affair was aimed to strengthen the relationship between people of different ethnic groups by bringing them together.
