RAYA Tanglung 1Malaysia, a joint Mid-Autumn Festival, Hari Raya Aidilfitri and Malaysia Day celebration organised by Kelana Jaya MCA parliamentary liaison office and Kelana Jaya MCA, was a splendid affair.

Accompanied by a dragon dance troupe and a kompang group, Deputy Women, Family and Community Development Minis­ter Senator Heng Seai Kie and Kelana Jaya parliamentary liaison officer Ong Chong Swen led a tanglung parade into the dimly-lit mall.

They were joined by Sunway Pyramid chief operating officer Kevin Tan, Sunway Group exco member Puan Sri Dr Susan Cheah and event organising chairman William Cha, as well as parents and children carrying candle-lit lanterns.

During the parade, the VIPs were served mooncakes and tea, air sirap and ketupat, teh tarik and roti canai, by children in traditional costumes.

A variety of performances, including dancing, singing and an acrobatic show, were put up for the public near the mall’s blue entrance.

 

Ong, in her speech, said she was told that Hari Raya Aidilfitri was a religious festival while the Mid-Autumn was a cultural festival, and hence should not be celebrated together.

“But in Malaysia, it is the spirit of acceptance, joy and love that bind us together. Both festivals are celebrated with lights that show the way of muhibbah,” she said.
