Deviating from the traditional red and gold, the lions were adorned in fluorescent green, blue, and white, symbolizing the festive Hari Raya spirit.

This vibrant fusion of Chinese lion dance with the Malay festival of Hari Raya is a testament to the unique Malaysian cultural tapestry.

In the comments, viewers expressed their awe and pride, with one user remarking, “This is the 1 Malaysia spirit we’re famous for!”
