KL SOGO Chinese New Year Lion Dance Performance - pictures


After going through a couple of week of cold spells, the weather was hot again and it was a hot day recently when yours truly was there at KL Sogo on the 8th day of Chinese New Year, to watch their annual Chinese New Year Lion Dance by Hong Teck Dragon & Lion Dance at the small 'dataran' in front of the departmental store...



The beautiful traditional Chinese New Year celebration began with a 24 seasonal drum performance that set everyone's heart pounding in excitement as well, drawing passerby's curiosity as to check out what was going on and adding to the crowd which was already there...


KL Sogo managing director Datuk Andrew Lim Tatt Keong was present and along with the other KL Sogo management team, VIPs and invited guests...


The drummers definitely gave a perfect performance much to the admiration of those present
  

KL Sogo staff were seen handing out mandarin oranges to those who were present in the spirit of Chinese New Year celebrations..



The lions paid their respects to KL Sogo managing director Datuk Andrew Lim Tatt Keong and all present before beginning their performance....



The crowd waited with bated breath as the lions ascended the poles....



The crowd stood transfixed, watching in wonder as the the pair of lions leapt from pole to pole effortlessly while playfully flirting with each other..

  




The mall’s celebration this year carries the theme “Togetherness, Celebrate Happiness” promoting traditional family values, harmony and of course, happiness....



A picture perfect moment with the managing director Datuk Andrew Lim Tatt Keong and all the other management team and staff of KL Sogo... 


The breathtaking end of the performance... via somersault.....


This was followed by a sumptuous Chinese New Year luncheon at the Sogo Siang Seafood Restaurant where the Sogo management team, along with some business partners, and members of the media got to indulge in....beginning with the tossing of the yee sang......


Thank you KL Sogo for having me over... for this momentous occasion... 👲 and GONG XI FA CHAI....
