It was with great pleasure to be the proud sponsor of Ang Mo Kio’s Mid Autumn Festival celebrations held on 24th September. Graced by the Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong, we gathered excitedly with the residents of Ang Mo Kio to witness the Eye-dotting Ceremony of the Dragon!
Performed by Xin Yang Dragon Dance Troupe, the traditional ceremony was a boisterous and colourful affair. Using a mixture of red pearl powder and rice wine, the eyes of the dragon was dotted by PM Lee himself, thus awakening the dragon. By bringing the dragon to life, it is believed to bring luck and prosperity to the people, and also to chase away evil spirits.
