Ushering 2011 Rabbit Year with Lion Dance

7th Day of Chinese New Year, 2 auspicious lions arrive at InstantIT.Asia headquarters, Exabytes Network to wish us Happy Chinese New Year and a prosperous year ahead. Lion Dance is a kind of traditional dance in Chinese culture, in which performers mimic a lion’s movements in a lion costume, usually in yellow, gold or red which symbolizes good fortune, prosperity, and auspiciousness.

At 9.15am, staff members of InstantIT.Asia wearing in red are anxiously waiting for the arrival of good luck, some even suggest to hide and give the 2 auspicious lions a surprise. 5 minutes later, the first hit of gong is heard, amidst cheering and clapping of hands, a gold lion and a silver-red lion danced into our lobby with their full fledged gong equipment. ‘Tuck Tuck Dong Dong Dong Chang’, ‘Dong Dong Dong….. Chang’ is heard everywhere and it is truly ear-shattering, loud enough to scare away all the bad evils and bring in the good luck.

On reaching the lobby, dancing and greetings by the lions are followed by the throwing of tangerines to the crowd. In Chinese, as the pronunciation of tangerines is similar to gold, we are elated to received gold from the 2 very luck-promising lions. And the first endeavor, are of course to ‘pluck the green’ aka ‘Cai Ching’ in Chinese, using their martial arts skills some say originated from the Kung Fu of Wong Fei Hung.

Approaching the green which is hung around 8 feet high like 2 curious lions, they danced a little bit and fought like 2 giant cats under it before the gold lion making its martial arts still jump and get the green and the Ang Pow (red envelopes which contain cash / check) in one single attempt. Amidst big round of applause, the lion returns to the ground, spits out the green and keeps the Ang Pow.

Our spirit runs high, adjourning to our desks the 2 lions are now heading to the department of InstantIT.Asia to greet us plus helping us to tear up and ‘eat’ the tangerines on our tables.

Thanks very much for the spectacular performance of Lion Dance and our CEO Chan Kee Siak for inviting the lions, auspiciousness and prosperity. Lastly, this enjoyable and motivating event is wrapped up by the group photo taking session with our gold lion, with great luck and more surprises promised in the year of 2011.

InstantIT.Asia would also like to take this opportunity to wish all our clients a promising and enjoyable year of the Rabbit!
