On the road again: Get in the Gong Xi Fa Cai spirit with 988 announcers (from left) Cassey, Hau Min, Jason, Yi Hui, KK, Xin Yi, Yin Yin and Piao Ming during the station’s CNY tour.
The radio station is determined to spread some festive cheer to ring in the Year of the Horse.
MANY reckon this is the year to tighten our belts, but it really doesn’t cost much to have a good time. With just a few weeks to go before the Year of the Horse comes galloping in, 988 aims to keep the festive mood going with entertainment-packed Chinese New Year promotional tours and exclusive freebies.
Now that’s not going to be hard on the wallet at all.
This year, 988’s annual studio album – its sixth – is cheekily entitled 988 Ma Ma Mi Ya Guo Hao Nian (988 Mama Mia Have A Good Year). The album is available on CD and DVD and will be given away for free during the station’s upcoming promotional tour, along with ang pow packets, calendars and other CNY goodies.
Usher in the new year with festive tunes and catch 988 announcers every weekend beginning this Sunday, Jan 12 (2pm-5pm) at Tropicana City Mall, Petaling Jaya. The tour will continue in Leisure Mall, Kuala Lumpur on Jan 18; Paragon Mall, Penang on Jan 25; and Ipoh Parade, Ipoh on Jan 26.
