Away to PLKN (Day 41): Lion Dance at Tiger CNY Miao Hui

I got a little bit crazy already and is bad at managing my content. Suddenly I jump out a post about the Miao Hui that happened during Chinese New Year in February, a long time ago. Do you mind or not? Mind also I have to post it up already, who call me to be in NS right now and I’ve no content to write. WTF.

Anyway, let’s cut the crap and going into something interesting. So this year’s Miao Hui was unlike last year, this year, I sat down with Alvin at the Lion Dance area to see the Lion Dance show from start to end. I didn’t know why last time didn’t go check it out.

It seems like very interesting because there’s so many people standing by to wait for the performance. Alvin is a fan of Lion Dance, me is not. We got a good spot in front of everyone, most photographers like us where there too!

Something wrong with the schedule that day. It’s 15 minutes behind schedule, only then it started.

They were great, they can jump up and down so steadily without any mistake. I wish I could too!

Some Chinese said touching the Lion head bring good luck and prosperity. After the dance, the Lion heads were placed on the ground and everyone went to touch it. Me too! Good luck for me. Haha.
