Gong Xi Fa Cai from DUG! Chinese New Year went with a bang in our KL office, as we welcome in the year of the Pig.
According to the Chinese 12-year animal zodiac cycle, the Chinese year beginning in 2019 is the year of the Pig. Although each of the animals gets its own outing every twelve years, there are different varieties. 2019 will be the first Year of the Earth Pig since 1959.
According to the Chinese zodiac, if you were born in a Pig year, you are known as a Pig (or ‘belonging to the Pig’) and are diligent, compassionate, and generous.
People belonging to the pig have great concentration, and it is said once they set a goal, they will devote all their energy to achieving it
Earth Pigs are understood to be communicative, popular among their friends, and with a strong sense of time keeping
This year, our KL office enjoyed many celebrations, including an impressive lion dance performance and a “Prosperity Toss”, or Yusheng.
In this tradition, everyone at the table takes turns to toss the ‘salad’ and offer blessings and good fortune for the New Year.
