It’s the beginning of the new Lunar calendar, and we welcome in the year of the pig!
Monspace held the 2019 Year of the Golden Pig CNY Gala, which ended on a high note on 31 January 2019 (Tuesday) at Putrajaya PICC.
The gala saw the attendance of company staff, users from around the world, company leaders under Monspace Group, and celebrities from across China. Everyone got together for a happy and exciting celebration, sharing wishes and blessings for the new year.
The organisers put in great thought into this year’s event, and curated an exciting line up of performances that had attendants bemused and entertained.
The night kicked off with a captivating lion dance, with cymbals and beats drumming up the rhythm for the opening ceremony, getting attendants exhilarated.
To help audience reminisce the good old days, classic oldies from the 40s through the 90s were played, taking the audience through a journey of Chinese New Year celebrations through the decades.
Both local and international performers were also present, including Maria Cordero, Frankie Lam, Zhuang Xue Zhong, Tse-Ling Ling, The Shanghai Sisters, Lau Han Jie, Crystal Ong, Nini and more. Each singer performed songs from different eras, including titles such as Night of the Huangmei Tune, Shanghai Night, Classic Jajambo, Hong Kong Classic, and Notebook of Youth.
Through the brilliant performance, the audience felt taken back in time, to moments of childhood when those tunes were played on the radio.
Then, there were group performances of Chinese New Year songs such as “Gongxi Gongxi”, “God of Fortune”, “Happy New Year”, and theme song of the night: “Five Blessings Arrive on the Clouds”.
To highlight the spirit of reunion during the season, local actors and actresses such as Lim Ching Miau, Zeng Hong Hui, Deng Xiu Jin, Zhu Jian Mei, and Liu Han Jie to perform a skit titled “Welcoming the God of Fortune”. The moving plot and compelling performance convey the message of the piece: a happy and united family is worth more than treasures. We should learn to be thankful, and accomplish “life inspiring life”.
The LSofo sharing massage chair is one of Monspace’s highlight in 2019. To introduce this high-quality product and its excellent features, Monspace invited Hong Kong celebrity couple Frankie Lam and Kenix Kwok as experience ambassadors for LSofo. The brand also had its ambassador launch during the CNY gala.
Besides Lam and Kwok, Monspace also had Maria Cordero and Michelle Yim as the experience ambassador, through interesting song and dance, showcase the experience of using LSofo massage chairs.
Built on 5000 years of history, Chinese acrobatics is one of the popular performances among Chinese people. Monspace hence prepared a showcase of some of Asia’s best acrobats, giving the audience a breath-taking performance that night.
This was followed by a series of motivational talks, encouraging everyone to spread their wings and soar high in the new year.
The motivational speakers include Chinese Success expert Chan Anzhi and master public speaker Liang Kaien. The two speakers offered rich information, content, and a compelling speech to encourage attendants.
But the most exciting part of the 2019 Year of the Golden Pig CNY Gala has got to be the “Battle of Red and White”.
This hilarious programme was hosted by Wind Lee, Wayne Shin Kong, and Beauty; accompanied by a beautiful assistant dressed in Qipao, the team led celebrities in a friendly match.
One of the games, hide and seek, was especially entertaining. Celebrities had three minutes to change and blend in among the crowd, and others have to look for them, all the while navigating audience members waving their hands to the music. The team who finds the most hidden celebrities win.
At the end of the exciting night, founder and CEO of Monspace Dato’ Sri Jessy Lai said: “We’ve come a long way, and the only direction to take is forward. In 2019, Monspace will continue to do business with the purpose of making lives better for people. We will continue to stand firm on our values of transparency and reliability, and treat our staff well. We believe Monspace will achieve even greater heights this year. I wish everyone a happy new year, and may the year be good to you!”
