MALAYSIAN ARMED FORCES CHINESE VETERANS ASSOCIATION (MACVA)
PRESIDENT'S 2024 GONG XI FA CAI GREETINGS


8 Feb 24

Greetings to All Chinese Veterans,

We shall be celebrating the Chinese New Year on the 10th of February 2024 as we welcome the Year of the Dragon. Powerfu and energetic, the zodiacal dragon is considered the most powerful symbol in Chinese culture and are bringer of good luck. In the Jade Emperor and the Four Dragons legend, four dragons witnessed extreme drought wreaking havoc on the people of China and approached the deity Jade Emperor to send rain. The empeoro faltered on his initial promise due to preoccupied with other commitments which resulted in many death and the land turning dry and cracked.

The dragons saw the people’s plight and brought rain on their own to help the people. This angered the Jade Emperor who ordered the Mountain God to lock away these dragons forever. Four rivers, each representing one dragon, sprang out from the mountain prison, to protect the Chinese people and are famously known as the Yellow River, the Yangtze River, the Pearl River, and the Amur River.

On New Year Day, we put on red and brightly colour clothing and gave Ang Pow to our children to welcome an auspicious new year with good fortune and prosperity. It is a time for getting together, lion dance and celebration. It is also a time where existing friendships are strengthened and old acquaintances renewed.
