Rise of the Dragon 蟄龍覺醒 – A Dynamic Celebration of Chinese New Year at Kwai Chai Hong

Get ready to embark on a thrilling journey as Kwai Chai Hong proudly unveils its latest masterpiece: “Rise of the Dragon 蟄龍覺醒.” This larger-than-life installation is not just a celebration; it’s an immersive experience that pays homage to the Year of the Dragon with boundless energy and joy.

At the heart of this vibrant celebration lies the ancient game of Mahjong, steeped in history since the days of the Qing Dynasty. But this isn’t just any game – it’s a cultural icon that transcends borders and brings communities together. Zeen Chang, Managing Partner of Bai Chuan Management, beautifully articulates its significance: “Mahjong is more than a game; it’s a thread that weaves through the fabric of our diverse Malaysian community, fostering unity and collective spirit.”

Teaming up with local artists Wong Jia Min and Lee Chaer Shean from Plus + Plus, Kwai Chai Hong transforms into a mesmerizing wonderland. Picture a colossal Mahjong game set amidst the bustling streets, its tiles swirling in a dance of tradition and modernity. And hovering above is a dragon’s majestic silhouette, symbolizing hope, prosperity, and new beginnings.

But the magic doesn’t end there. Plus + Plus draws inspiration from the rhythmic shuffle of Mahjong tiles, infusing the installation with a sense of renewal and rejuvenation. Wong explains, “Mahjong isn’t just a game; it’s a metaphor for resetting the year, ushering in prosperity, union, and peace.”

Lee adds, “The Rise of the Dragon 蟄龍覺醒 is a testament to the resilience of the human spirit, much like the dragon awakening from its slumber to embrace the new year with renewed vigour and power.”
