Dignity "Muhibbah" choir delights OCBC Bank staff with novel Chinese New Year performance
Following their Christmas performance to OCBC Bank (Malaysia) Berhad (OCBC Bank) staff in December, the singers from Dignity for Children Foundation (Dignity) were back at Menara OCBC, Jalan Tun Perak with their repertoire of Lunar New Year hits – sung by youth and children of various ethnicities.

The 22-strong choir mesmerised the audience with classics such as Tian Mi Mi (Sweet like Honey), Molihua (Jasmine Flower), Kang Ding Qing Ge (Kang Ding Love Song), and Ali Shan Zhi Ge (Song of Ali Mountain).

Present to lend support to the oriental atmosphere were OCBC Bank CEO Dato’ Ong Eng Bin and OCBC Al-Amin Bank Berhad CEO Syed Abdull Aziz Syed Kechik together with several other members of the senior management. The singers were later treated to lunch at the Bank’s premises. The Bank staff also made a financial contribution to Dignity in their effort to bring more children back to school in 2020.
Dignity is a non-governmental organisation that provides holistic care and education for urban poor children in Kuala Lumpur. It currently serves over 1,700 children and youth aged 1-18 years.
Other than operating education programmes in Sentul, Dignity also supports other community schools working with poor children in South East Asia through its community-school start-up and teachers’ training programmes.
Dato’ Ong said he was delighted to have Dignity perform at the Bank’s premises yet again.
“Just like during Christmas, we wanted to share the joy of Chinese New Year again with our friends from Dignity. So we added a twist this year. As in past years we had our usual lion dance performance in the morning. But this time round, we followed that up with the delightful performance by Dignity that left everyone feeling doubly blessed,” he said.
