Dragons and lions spring to life for festivities

In ushering in the Year of the Snake, Chinese communities in Brunei, particularly prominent businessmen, welcome the lion dance and dragon dance performances as a sign of blessing for the new year.
It was no different for Brunei-China Friendship Association Vice President Ang Swee Chuan, as he opened his doors to a lion dance troupe from Chung Hwa Middle School (BSB) to his home on the first day of Chinese New Year.
Meanwhile, a dragon dance troupe performed at the home of local businessman Lim Ting Chai, who counted Brunei-Muara District Officer Awg Hj Jamain bin Momin as one of his guests during his Chinese New Year ‘open house.’
