Celebrating this year's of the Ox in a special way

This year's Chinese New Year celebration is rather unique when it is being celebrated in the "new norms" where the traditional open house activities are now not allowed in view of the prevailing Covid19 pandemic. Nevertheless, we had our own special gathering with our Chinese friends including the Right Honourable Chief Min­is­ter of Sarawak, Datuk Pat­inggi Abang Jo­hari Tun Openg and his wife Datuk Amar Juma’ani Tuanku Bu­jang who joined in with other ‘guests’ of a vir­tual open-house event hosted by Sarawak United Peo­ple’s Party (SUPP) on the first day of the the new Lunar year cel­e­bra­tion.

In his brief re­marks for the vir­tual gath­er­ing, Abang Jo­hari called upon all mem­bers of the Chi­nese com­mu­nity to con­tinue work­ing to­gether in the war against Covid-19. #AbangJo also called upon them to join the govern­ment in draw­ing up the best poli­cies aimed at ac­cel­er­at­ing Sarawak’s progress. Together, we per­formed the tra­di­tional toss­ing of the ‘Yee Sang’ si­mul­ta­ne­ously with those par­tic­i­pat­ing on­line, who included our kind host, Min­is­ter for Lo­cal Govern­ment and Hous­ing Dato Sri Dr Sim Kui Hian, who is also SUPP pres­i­dent.
