Reunion dinner falls on the eve of Chinese New Year.

That’s when families typically get together to have a meal.

However, not everyone is able to be reunited with their loved ones over this festive season.

Chinese New Year video

A video uploaded on Facebook on Feb.3 by Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF), shows some of these unsung heroes are not alone on the eve of Chinese New Year.

The video starts off poignantly with a voice message from the family of one of the emergency responders, saying that reunion dinner isn’t the same without him.

Despite not being able to be with their families, the group of emergency responders enjoy a simple steamboat dinner while on duty together.

The SCDF folks also launch into a rendition of popular Chinese New Year song, ‘Gong Xi Gong Xi’, while having dinner together.

Titled ‘A Homely Reunion That’s Away From Home’, this four minute production features actual emergency responders acting, singing and even playing the guitar.
