Keeping up with CNY custom across the sea
SP SETIA’s Chinese New Year tradition continued miles away as business associates and friends gathered for a yee-sang toss during the annual festive dinner organised by the company’s Melbourne office.
Malaysians who could not return home to celebrate with their families, were able to share in the Chinese New Year atmosphere Down Under.
Setia (Melbourne) Development Company Pty Ltd chief executive officer Datuk Choong Kai Wai together with his team greeted and welcomed guests to the dinner.
“Malaysians are very lucky to have diverse cultures and we want to continue such traditions by celebrating with other Malaysians here in Melbourne.
“The different cultures coming together reflects the true Malaysian spirit, making this event a happy occasion for all,” said Choong.
Guests at the event included BMW Australia chief executive officer Marc-Heinrich Werner, Fender Katsalidis founder Karl Fender and Beulah International director Erica Chan.
Besides tossing of the yee sang, dinner guests were treated to traditional delicacies from Malaysia to give them a taste of home.
