Chinese New Year is almost upon us. To celebrate the New Year and usher in the upcoming winter break, Tamkang University held a Chinese New Year End-of-Year Gala. On the afternoon of Friday, January 21st, as rain sprinkled across the TKU Tamsui Campus, TKU faculty and staff poured into the Student Activity Center with cheerful anticipation.
The line-up of entertainment was organized jointly by the Tamkang Military Training Department and the TKU Office of Physical Education. It featured a traditional lion dance show; a unique version of the classic fairy tale, Snow White, performed to a slideshow backdrop of the Tamsui Campus, and featuring characters from TKU's faculty and staff; a song and dance parody of the Korean pop sensation “Wondergirls”; and the centerpiece of the afternoon, a choreographed, PG-rated male strip show, which drew rapturous shrieks from the female portion of the 1,500 strong audience.
Interwoven among the stage performance was a series of raffle draws. A total of 200 cash prizes were given away as part of the raffle, with the major prize of NT $30,000 drawn at the very end of the program. The winner, Department of Accounting Lecturer Yang Chuan-li, clasped the winning ticket firmly in his hand and dashed toward the stage to the thunderous applause of the crowd.
