MCA to take festivities online this year


PETALING JAYA: MCA will not be hosting its annual Chinese New Year Open House event this year.

Party secretary-general Datuk Chong Sin Woon said the decision was in adherence to the standard operating procedure released by the National Security Council to prevent Covid-19 clusters and in the interest of the people’s well-being.

He said MCA would also not be hosting other associated events for party veterans and Chinese guilds as well as media night.

‘’Nevertheless, to keep the spirit and atmosphere of Chinese New Year alive and usher in the Lunar Year of the Metal Ox, MCA will celebrate Chinese New Year online, ’’ he said in a statement yesterday.

Chong urged the Chinese community to observe this year’s festivities in compliance with the SOP to protect each other.

“Wishing everyone a Happy Chinese New Year. May you have an Ox-picious Lunar New Year ahead, blessed with good health and compassion, ” he added.

He said the party had produced a short video clip title “CNY at Home in Town/The City” (an alternative to balik kampung), and was organising a TikTok short video contest titled “Cow Cow CNY”.
