February 4, 2016

It is CMZ CEO Atty. Jhihann Natividad's natal day and four days before Chinese New Year for 2016 as we welcome the Fire Monkey.

We were all excited in the hospital as we were expecting the Lion Dance (c/o Chong Hua High School) to visit us this day!
The Lions amaze the staff, patients and relatives of CMZ
What is the Lion Dance? Here is what I googled...

Lion Dance
According to traditional Chinese belief, the lion signifies courage, stability and superiority. The lion’s dance is performed to chase away ghosts and evil spirits, and since the monsters, ghosts, evil spirits and giants like Nian are afraid of loud noises, the dance has become a natural complement to the fire crackers' noise. Clashing cymbals, a gong and drums usually accompany this lively scene. The lion’s every movement has a specific musical rhythm. The music follows the moves of the lion, the drum follows the lion, the cymbals and the gong follow the drum player. Throughout the performance, the Lion will mimic various moods and demonstrate similar physical gestures allowing the Lion to look life-like

Here are some of the scenes as the Lion Dance took Ciudad Medical Zamboanga by storm and was welcomed by everyone who all hoped to receive great omen for the New Year!
