Chinese New Year celebration of the new millennium


Sarawak has various races, ethnicities, and religious beliefs. Every year those who practice various religions will celebrate the New Year or the celebration of their respective religious days.

This February, the Chinese community will celebrate the New Year. Chinese New Year dates change each year because they follow the date in the lunar calendar but usually fall at the beginning of the year in January or February.

This year may not be as lively as before because Chinese New Year celebrations are still allowed but according to the SOP set by the government has done during Hari Raya Aidilfitri and Deepavali earlier, large family activities are also only allowed at home with family members from the same house. The implementation of the Movement Control Order (MCO), is still being implemented to prevent the Covid-19 epidemic from spreading further.

On this occasion, PAS Sarawak would like to wish a Happy Chinese New Year to all Chinese communities regardless of religious beliefs and political affiliation.

May the well-being, peace, and unity of the races be maintained with a harmonious life in society and the multi-racial beliefs in this country continue to be preserved.

New Year, do not live in the past as it can make you depressed; do not live for the future as it will only make you anxious. Live only in the present because that alone will give you peace. Stay safe and Happy Chinese New Year 2021! 新年快樂 (Xin nian kuai le)

Yours faithfully,
Jofri Jaraiee
