UniSIM Mid-Autumn Festival Celebration 中秋奔跃 2013

H2013_14sep_P

The koi pond at SIM headquarters was decorated with blinking lanterns painted by children and bustling with their laughter amidst burbling mini water fall in the background. Faint fragrant aroma from the brewing Chinese tea and delicious mooncakes filled the air.

This is the second year that UniSIM Centre for Chinese Studies (UCCS) and the mid-autumn working committee organised the mid-autumn festival celebration that took place on 14 September. In his welcome address, Guest of honour Professor Cheong Hee Kiat, President of SIM University, stressed the importance of preserving Chinese traditional culture and the significance of reunion that the festival connotes, especially for modern Singapore families.

Some 130 attendees were treated to a series of exciting performances that include classical guitar; poetry recitation in Mandarin, Shanghainese, Cantonese; Chinese popular song rendition and an energetic Japanese style hip-hop dance. The programme ended with a game of lantern riddle guessing which drew spontaneous participation from the audience.

Staff, alumni members, students, associates as well as their family members and friends had a great time catching up with each other and feasting under the moonlight as the night drew to a close. 


中秋奔跃2013


9月14日晚,新跃大学鲤鱼池畔灯火点点,在阵阵茶香、月饼香伴着潺潺瀑布声中,迎来了一群活泼的小朋友,在池畔为灯笼添新彩。

今年是新跃中华学术中心与奔跃工作小组第二次合办“中秋奔跃”晚会。新跃大学校长张起杰教授在欢迎辞里,强调了维护中华文化传统的重要性,其中中秋象征月圆人圆的意义,更适用于新加坡的现代家庭。

今年所呈现的表演节目特别精彩,计有新跃大学职员刘丽君和她的搭档刘汉新的古典吉他双重奏《月亮代表我的心》、《午后的旅程》,刘汉新的吉他独奏《遇见》;由新跃大学校友,盛惠龄、马颖、伍俐璆、陈丽芳、尹群玉呈献的华语、沪语、粤语诗词朗诵《月下独酌》、《骊山怀古》、《望江南》;主持人李颖独唱的脍炙人口的《城里的月光》;新加坡管理学院全球教育的六人DreamWerkz小组活力充沛的“和式”嘻哈舞。

晚会在最后压轴的猜灯谜游戏的热烈气氛下落幕。约130名新跃大学校友、学生、教职员及家人在叙旧聊天、品茶赏月之余,渡过了一个开心热闹的中秋之夜。
