Energetic show for luck in elections

AUSPICIOUS vibes were ushered into the Malaysian United Party headquarters in Penang with an energetic performance by a glittering pair of silver and red lions.

Party president Tan Gin Theam began the ceremony by dotting each lion on their eyes, ears, nose, mouth and down the length of the body with red paint as a symbol of giving it life.

The awakened lions then proceeded to perform the dance ceremony throughout the office before the celebration concluded with the lighting up of firecrackers in Melaka Street on Monday.

Party deputy president Dennis Koay Xing Boon, who was also present, said this was a small gathering held by the party to usher in lasting luck for the upcoming general election.
