MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT OF MELBOURNE DAI LOONG ASSOCIATION

Eng

“Man’s Best Friend” – that’s what the dear Doggie is. And we are celebrating its Year.

We can always rely on the Dog’s loyalty and honesty. The Dog provides companionship and comradeship and is, certainly, a faithful friend.

It is with this in mind that we should head into 2018, with all good wishes and positivity. Such traits of the Dog, as one of the 12 animals chosen by Buddha should be honoured and we should pursue these good characteristics.

Like a faithful Dog, we should follow the trail and tag along with our family members, friends and colleagues and be there for each other.

Let’s “bark” in the New Year with great joy and “woof” up a Very Happy, Prosperous, Safe and Healthy Year of the Dog and wish for the same well-being in the years to come.

Kung Hei Fatt Choi / Guo Nian Hao

On behalf of the Chinatown Precinct Association Inc., I would like to congratulate the Melbourne Dai Loong Association (MDLA) as the endorsed Organisation to manage the Melbourne Chinese New Year Festival. MDLA has delivered this with many new cultural activities and not only has the community at large have benefitted from this great effort, the businesses in our Melbourne Chinatown has also gained considerable promotion and other benefits. The enthusiasm and energy of the MDLA are truly to be admired and is hereby acknowledged with gratitude.

The endeavours put in by MDLA are also recognised by our Melbourne Council which has encouraged the festivities to be expanded beyond Chinatown. Hence, the celebrations will also be held at Federation Square, Queen Victoria Market, Melbourne Central and also the Treasury Gardens, organised by the MDLA.

I wish everyone celebrating the Chinese New Year “Kung Hei Fatt Choi / Gong Xi Fa Cai”.
