"Kung Hei Fat Choi..."
Oh yeah, few days to go and we are about to welcome the year of the dog! The 2018 Chinese New Year is just around the corner! Are you ready?!
Being one of the members of the Chinoy community, I am also excited to welcome and celebrate the Chinese New Year (CNY). And this year is more special... we will celebrate it with #diverCHIty!
Yes you heard it right, "diverCHIty." Coined from the word "diversity," #diverCHIty is actually the on-going campaign of the Chinese-Filipino community. This is launched for all proud Chinoys in line with Chinoy TV’s 8th year anniversary acting as a pillar in the Chinese-Filipino community. The campaign aims to gather individuals / groups who share the same cause of promoting diversity, individuality and unity among the Chinese- Filipino Community. And part of this campaign is the CNY #diverCHIty Run 2018.
