50 per cent discount for Likas Sports Complex rental

10th January, 2019

KOTA KINABALU: The Youth and Sports Ministry offers a 50 per cent discount for the rental of the Likas Sports Complex, in support of the Chinese New Year Dragon, Unicorn and Lion Dance Festival and Cultural Village Exhibition.

Its minister Datuk Frankie Poon Ming Fung made the disclosure to the organiser, United Sabah Chinese Communities Association of Kota Kinabalu (USCCAKK) led by its president Datuk Susan Wong Siew Guen, who paid a courtesy call on the former Tuesday.

Poon also congratulated and commended Susan’s son, Jonathan Wong, for making the country proud for winning a medal in the 2018 Asian Games held in Jakarta, Indonesia.

Meanwhile, in her briefing, Susan informed Poon of USCCAKK’s commitment and continuous efforts to encourage the younger generation to play a more active role in preserving and promoting the Chinese culture and tradition, such as by participating in the organising of the annual Chinese New Year activities.

She reckoned that the Chinese New Year Dragon, Unicorn and Lion Dance Festival and Cultural Village Exhibition would be an excellent event for the Chinese youths to touch base with their cultural roots.

“Apart from the dragon, unicorn and lion dances, the Cultural Village Exhibition provides a platform for people to learn more about the food and tea cultures presented by the 15 clan associations in Kota Kinabalu.

“Each of the association will introduce and display a variety of Chinese New Year pastries and teas originated from their ancestral province/hometown,” she said.

Besides this, she also encouraged Chinese youths in the state to join their clan associations, as a mean to serve the community and preserve their culture.

The Cultural Village Exhibition featuring Chinese tea cultures and pastries will be held at the corridor of Likas Sports Complex starting from 8.30am onwards on January 19. The exhibition will be launched by the Consul General of the People’s Republic of China in Kota Kinabalu, Liang Caide.

Meanwhile, the Chinese New Year Dragon, Unicorn and Lion Dance Festival would take place from 12.30pm to 7pm on the same day. The event will be officiated by the Chief Minister Datuk Seri Panglima Shafie Apdal. Apart from thrilling dragon, unicorn and lion dances, there will be special appearance by the God of Fortune, luminous dragon dance and 24 drums performance. – Michael Teh
