Celebrating CNY with Old Master Q @ Resorts World Genting

I remember looking forward to trips to the salon with my mother not because of a new haircut at the end but because the faithful stacks of Lau Fu Tze comics. Old Master Q, as he is known in English, has touched many hearts since 1962. The elderly, skinny and bespectacled man perpetually dressed in typical traditional Chinese attire is joined by his close friends, Big Potato, Mr Chin, Miss Chan and the other regulars to bring you the best of Chinese New Year in their show at Resorts World Genting this Monkey year!

Happiness has always been a very popular wish. Fans can expect a big dose of laughter and lots of nostalgia when they meet the quirky Old Master Q in their Chinese New Year Comedy Show held at Genting from 6th February- 29th February. It is said that the formula has not changed over the years although the comic stays relevant with the modern world. Children and adults alike will be reminded of the dos and don'ts of Chinese New Year.

To celebrate the upcoming show in Genting, there is Hong Kong Old Street Decoration Booth at Universal Walk where scenes are taken right out from the comic book. Old Master Q's posters and merchandise are omnipresent. Photo opportunities are aplenty to satisfy your predilection  for vintage charms- which is the reason why I not only went once, but twice!
