A night with Culture by Chloe Kong

On a Friday night when everyone went home to enjoy the weekend, the Chinese Society has organized an event for all to participate. Despite the busy schedule, many took the time off to come all the way to Sunway University just to witness this event.A night filled with tones of performances, the crew worked hard to make the event a success. From the planning to the execution, it was done well.

The night started off with a speech by the honorable guest. She used two languages back-to-back to show how much support she has for this event as well as to match the occasion. What wow-ed the crowd was the activity held to mark the commencement of the Chinese Cultural Night, and that is…the painting of the neon banner that glowed in the dark.

From the old to the new, the night was filled with and array of performances. From instruments to dances, each performer gave their heart and soul to that very moment. As an old saying goes, “台上三分钟,台下十年功” or rather the three minutes on stage is equivalent to ten years worth of hard work. Their hard work and dedication paid off as the crowd cheered for them.

Even though traditional aspects of the Chinese culture was the main thing, each performance was unique and different from one another. These performance incorporated some of the familiar modern cultures that we know today so it was really refreshing. It certainly has brought a new breath of life to the culture that may perish in time.

Another thing that was really impressive was that, the performances were not just catered for the old but it was also catered for the younger audiences as well. Hence, you can say the they were enjoyed by people of all ages.

 

All in all, it was worth the night! Prior to the commencement of the event, I had no clue as to what was going to happen when I stepped into the hall. Right after the first performance, I found myself looking forward to the other performances that came after that. It was a really worth while night.
