NUS MBA Chinese New Year Celebrations: Together in Diversity
Two students blog about their Chinese New Year experiences.
This Year of Tiger came early for NUS MBA students. On February 5, the NUS MBA Student Council staged Chinese New Year Celebrations at Munchie Monkey. Chinese New Year marks the start of new year on the lunar calendar and the start of spring. Though, it was initially celebrated in mainland China, the dispersion of Chinese descendents around the globe now mean that this festival is then celebrated all over the world. Hence, this year Spring Festival in NUS also celebrated diversity. Students from other countries such as Canada, India, Indonesia, Korea, and the Philippines to name the few were being involved with the celebration. We had good food, good entertainment, and most importantly good company… After all, the gist of Chinese New Year celebration is indeed togetherness.
