Delphic Celebrates the Year of the Rat

For many of us, Chinese New Year, like most new year celebrations, is a time for gratitude and reconnecting with loved ones over hopes for better health and prosperity in the months ahead.

This year, with an international viral outbreak affecting communities and families everywhere, we are especially grateful for the chance to spend time with our teams in Qingdao, Singapore and Kuala Lumpur as we ushered in the Year of the Rat together.

Having a people-oriented culture at Delphic means that we are always happy to celebrate any occasion which gives us a reason to gather over a meal. During this Lunar New Year, just like close-knit families would do, we got together for reunion dinners with our staff around the region, exchanging new year greetings over multiple rounds of ‘lo hei’*.

* ‘Lo hei’ refers to the tossing of a cantonese-style raw fish salad or ‘yee sang’, which symbolises prosperity and abundance and is typically eaten only during the Lunar New Year.

Across our local offices, we also gave out ‘ang pows’ or red packets for good luck along with mandarin oranges and traditional goodies. Everyone then returned to their hometowns to continue the festivities with their own families.

With the Year of the Rat believed to represent wealth and surplus, we’re excited to see what the coming months would bring. To our Delphic family, let’s continue to work hard and stay focused on achieving our goals as a team. To our partners and customers, we wish you a prosperous and healthy New Year, and we look forward to serving you even better!
