Referring back to my previous post HERE on how different everyone interprets the celebration of Chinese New year, I've decided to try my luck and send a recent photo I took at my grandmother's place on the first day of Chinese New year to the Petronas CNY photography contest !!! It's actually really simple to enter the competition if you are a photography enthusiast and have taken many pictures of the CNY festivities:)
Simply click on this LINK and follow the instructions........
Below is ONE of the pictures(Yea, I submitted two because I'm allowed to,!! So kill me for being kiasu :p) I've submitted and I named it "Cooking on the first day of CNY"!!
Now, you are probably wondering why this picture out of many which I've probably taken right? And then I recalled something my auntie said about how, for many "Chinese New Year" is a holiday but for the older generation, they are the ones working and basically cooking up a storm especially on the first day of Chinese New Year as we will be eating vegetarian food!! And the best part is that they are actually happy doing it, cooking for the whole family because they love the camaraderie in the house...
In the end, it's how you interpret and understand the term of Reimagining Energy during Chinese New Year....
Like Petronas and four different versions of their commercials, they interpreted "Reimagining Energy" as the spirit of resilience, energy to see opportunity, energy to go on, improve and move on while staying true to our values !! Check out their commercials which symbolizes their interpretation of it..
The Malaysian version
