The celebration dedicated to the loyal customers and consumers, celebrities and members of the media were welcomed by the Carlsberg Flying Dragon which received the Malaysia’s Book of Record award as the longest inflatable dragon measuring at 118 feet in length. The flying dragon complements the Carlsberg Malaysia's 2012 CNY tagline of "Welcome the new year with the vigour of the dragon for an endless flow of prosperity".
