The Chinese community in the country marked the first day of the Lunar New Year with colourful festivities, while several prominent businessmen opened the doors to their homes, welcoming well-wishers as they ushered in the New Year with renewed vigour and hopes.

The Lunar New Year does not just mean renewed hopes for happiness, prosperity and longevity but also an opportunity to foster closer ties and forge better relationships.

Among the many open houses was that of owner and sole proprietor of supermarket chain Sim Kim Huat (SKH) Department Store CK Lee who held the celebration for business associates, friends, families and SKH staff at Seafood Palace Restaurant in Tanjung Bunut.

Invited guests were treated to an array of scrumptious delicacies courtesy of the restaurant, which is also another subsidiary of SKH Department Store.
