PETALING JAYA: MCA held a kai gong or “back-to-work” ceremony at its headquarters Wisma MCA after the long Chinese New Year holiday.
Party president Datuk Seri Liow Tiong Lai, staff and members from the party headquarters and Koperasi Jayadiri Malaysia Berhad (Kojadi) witnessed the ceremony yesterday, which fell on the fifth day of the Lunar New Year.
The ceremony began with a lion dance performance followed by a dragon dance. The lion dance performers then exchanged mandarin oranges and vegetables with Liow, a gesture to usher in an auspicious year of abundance and good health.
Liow also treated the staff to a kai gong lunch that included the traditional yee sang.
A statement from MCA said the kai gong ceremony fostered better camaraderie between the party leadership and headquarters staff.
Other members of the MCA central committee members who attended the ceremony were secretary-general Datuk Seri Ong Ka Chuan, vice-president Datin Paduka Chew Mei Fun and MCA Youth chief Chong Sin Woon.
