A Chinese New Year Celebration of Unity and Prosperity

On 22 February 2024, MIMOS hosted its Chinese New Year celebration, marking the Year of the Dragon with grandeur and enthusiasm. This event was a vibrant testament to the organisation’s unwavering commitment to cultural diversity and employee engagement.

Far from being just a festive gathering, this celebration stood as a profound embodiment of unity, joy, and the collective aspiration for prosperity and good fortune in the year ahead.

A Stir for Prosperity and a Spark of Excitement

The celebration was illuminated by the traditional Yee Sang ceremony, symbolising good luck, prosperity, and health. Led by MIMOS’ Acting President and CEO, Dr. Saat Shukri Embong, MIMOSians from varied backgrounds came together in harmony, participating in this vibrant toss.

Mixing the colourful ingredients while exchanging wishes for the future, this ceremony transcended mere tradition, fostering a deep sense of camaraderie and shared hopes among employees.

Anticipation soared with the lucky draw wheel of fortune, where fortunate MIMOSians received angpows, adding a layer of excitement and joy to the festivities.

This lucky draw acted as the perfect icebreaker, weaving an atmosphere of suspense and elation, leaving memorable impressions on both the winners and attendees.

Celebrating Creativity and Style

The festive spirit was further amplified by the Best Dress competition, an avenue for employees to express their creativity and enthusiasm through their best traditional or festive attire.

This contest showcased the vibrant colours and diverse expressions of Chinese New Year, with participants donning beautiful outfits that reflected their unique style and festive mood. It was a remarkable celebration of diversity, creativity, and the rich cultural tapestry within MIMOS.

The Year of the Dragon Chinese New Year celebration at MIMOS was a resonant reflection of the organisation’s inclusive culture and the robust sense of community among its employees.

By intertwining traditional elements like the Yee Sang ceremony with engaging activities such as a lucky draw and the Best Dress competition, MIMOS effectively nurtured a sense of belonging and collective joy among its workforce.

More than marking the commencement of a new lunar year, this event fortified the bonds within MIMOS, setting an optimistic and united tone for the year of the Dragon.
