Puchong, 27 January 2016 – LBS Bina Group Berhad (LBS) transformed its D’ Island Residence development into a carnival town to usher in the Chinese New Year.

Dato’ Sri Kee and Gu spoke about “2016 Property Market Outlook” and “New Year New Outlook”.
Embracing the essence of the celebration, visitors and residents of D’ Island Residence were feted with traditional delicacies and nostalgic Chinese arts and crafts such as paper cutting, knot-tying and calligraphy. As soulful music livened up the atmosphere, the God of Prosperity made his rounds to spread well-wishes for the coming year.
Children were also entertained with various activities such as face painting and mandarin orange decorating. Also available was a wishing garden and photo booth to capture memories of the Lunar New Year celebration.
In the spirit of Chinese New Year, other highlights included the free iPad Mini 2 given to the first 50 SkyVilla purchasers during the carnival.
