In conjunction with the celebration of Chinese New Year, SUPP PCB Chief Wilfred Yap together with members of SUPP Kota Sentosa Branch visited the Kota Sentosa Market to give oranges and to bring greetings of happiness, joy and prosperity to  the hawkers and their customers.

Yap said in a multi-racial and multi-cultural Sarawak, we have a range of traditions, festivals, and rituals all year round. These festivals and rituals go beyond the superficial as they are part of our rich Sarawakian culture and heritage. Sarawakians still observe the festivals for the value they add to family togetherness and social bonding. They still flourish today because many among the older generation have persisted in seeking to preserve and sustain them as part of our tradition and heritage. Traditions, customs and festivals are the foremost of our OneSarawak identity as a race, as a people and as a nation.

“Festivals, like Chinese New Year, have become occasions for Sarawakians to get together to renew familial ties and friendships. This alone is reason enough for us to continue celebrating them. We observe them today because they anchor us to our past as well as link our children to us”, he added.

As we celebrate Chinese New Year, SUPP Public Complaints Bureau and SUPP Kota Sentosa Branch also hopes that Sarawakians will all strive to enhance the spirit of patriotism of OneSarawak and love for our country and  recommit ourselves to further develop and strengthen the unity and understanding between the races with trust and respect for one another.

He called to all not to forget our multi-cultural and multi-religious fabric of our Sarawak society as it is through harmony and understanding among the various races that binds us all together as one people under OneSarawak.

Lastly, SUPP Public Complaints Bureau and SUPP Kota Sentosa wishes all Sarawakians “Happy & Prosperous Chinese New Year”.
