The Civic and Municipal Affairs Bureau (IACM) will hold a special 100-day birthday party for the locally born baby panda twins Kin Kin and Hong Hong on Monday in Coloane’s Seac Pai Van Park, according to a statement released by the bureau on Friday.
Kin Kin and Hong Hong, the twins’ names in Cantonese, means “healthy” when combined as “kin hong” in Chinese.
Their Putonghua names are Jian Jian and Kang Kang
The event’s official name is ‘Giant Panda Cubs’ 100-Day Celebration’
The statement also said about 200 residents, including those who joined a panda-naming campaign organised by the bureau in August, would have a chance to meet the twins during the activity.
The prize presentation ceremony of the campaign will also take place on Monday. Moreover, there will be “big prizes” for the top four winners who will also receive 5,000 patacas in cash each, the bureau said in a statement on September 17.
The report also said the panda twins might be able to meet residents regularly before or after the Chinese New Year (in late January next year), depending on the strength of the twins’ immune systems.
The twins are the first-ever giant pandas born in Macau. Their parents are a gift from the central government.
