CNY highlights – Lion dance

Every year on the first day of CNY, we would visit hubby’s classmate open house, whose dad is a prominent businessman in Kuantan. Coincidentally, his classmate’s wife is my course mate in university. Actually hubby and I met through them - him being the “heng dai” and me being the “ji mui” during their wedding, but that’s another story.

Each year, there will be a lion dance performance during the open house. However, this time around, I noticed that the troupe’s costumes were really nice, and there were poles set up around the compound. We later found out that the troupe was from Khuan Loke, winner of the 2007 Hong Kong World Lion Dance Championship. The performance was indeed superb, with lots of mid-air acrobatics. Here are some shots taken with my new Olympus mju 1050 SW.
