INCLEMENT weather did not deter Seremban 2 residents from celebrating Chap Goh Meh.
Organised by developer IJM Land Bhd at City Park, the celebration, themed “Reunion in S2 with Joys Anew”, began as early as 7am with a Chinese calligraphy competition followed by several other fun-filled activities throughout the day.
Later in the evening, City Park was turned into a fairyland with lanterns and other decorations put up to brighten up the night sky.
IJM Land Bhd senior general manager (central region) Datuk Hoo Kim See said hosting such events over the years helped strengthen the developer’s relationship with the residents as well as potential buyers of units in the township.

“We are always glad to celebrate the festive season with the Seremban 2 community and it is something we look forward to every year.
“Our priority is to help foster unity, reinforce family and community bonds as well as build friendships,” he said.
For the sixth consecutive year, the crowd was treated to performances by Chinese artistes and celebrities. This year’s event included Jiang Han, Geraldine, Danny, Apple, Amy and Juztin.
They also performed in a concert themed “Symphony of Love” which left the rain-drenched crowd mesmerised.
Hoo said Malaysians should treasure and celebrate all festivals to strengthen unity.
“Festivals bring out the best in us and help create a platform to spread cheer in the communities we live in,” he said.
