’ Party politician was spotted performing a Dragon Dance at a recent Chinese event organised by the Wei Yong Athletic Association – a local troupe that provides various traditional Chinese performances.

In a video uploaded on social media this past Tuesday, Mr Low can be seen with a huge smile as he leads the dragon by holding and spinning a colourful orb, called the dragon pearl.

It appears that Mr Low was only supposed to pose with the dragon pearl for a photograph but he sportingly participated in the dragon dance that took place at a condominium:

This is not the first that WP parliamentarians have taken part in traditional activities during the many occasions in Singapore.

During last year’s Chinese New Year celebrations, another ’ Party parliamentarian made a splash at a community event, charming both constituents and netizens.

The opposition party’s secretary-general made a grand entry as god of prosperity, Cai Shen Ye, at the Aljunied GRC New Year Dinner Celebration in March 2018. Videos capturing the event saw constituents lap up Singh’s jolly performance as he threw chocolate gold coins in the air:

A few months later, WP Chairman won hearts as she regaled her constituents with a special Malay song and dance performance at the Kaki Bukit Division Aljunied GRC Hari Raya 2018 celebration.

The crowd can be heard going wild with applause when Lim starts singing and the audience continue cheering as Lim croons the Malay song like a pro:

Even as long ago as seven years ago, the WP MPs made the effort to dress in Indian clothes to celebrate Deepavali along with Aljunied residents. Lim even shared a short story on the significance of Deepavali, peppered with some Tamil words, to the residents’ joy:
