KUALA LUMPUR 23 DECEMBER 2020 – As we bid farewell to the challenging 2020, Astro ushers in Year of the Metal Ox with all Malaysians, embracing the new year with a renewed sense of hope. During the pandemic, numerous aspects of daily lives were affected, with many forced to stay apart from family and close friends. Acknowledging the realities of the new norm, Astro celebrates the upcoming Year of the Metal Ox with the tagline of 心连心希望,元气满满Moo Moo哒 (Xin Lian Xin Xi Wang, Yuan Qi Man Man Moo Moo Da) which means “with love and hearts close to each other, physical distance is not a barrier, hope never vanishes, and together, we will see the light at the end of the tunnel and unleash the vitality of positive vibes.”    

Astro is optimistic that in keeping with its traditions of Chinese New Year (CNY) celebrations, Malaysians will find joy and comfort during this unprecedented time, specifically through the premieres of exciting CNY programmes, Moo Moo Da CNY Album, Moo Moo Da CNY merchandise, Moo Moo Da Web AR and Moo Moo Da CNY e-stickers.
