Growing up, Chinese New Year has always been a special occasion to us because we have Chinese blood (my dad’s side). I’ve lots of fond memories of tikoy, dragon dances and such. However, because we don’t get to spend that much time with that side of our family anymore, we haven’t been able to really celebrate Chinese New Year much in recent years. I hope that changes though, starting this year.
I’ve been looking for places where I can take my family this Chinese New Year and was lucky enough to find out that there’s going to be one happening at the Chinatown Lai Lai Hotel.
The Chinatown Lai Lai Hotel will herald the Lunar Year with joyous celebrations, traditional festive goodies and sumptuous feasts on February 7, 2016, 6:00 pm to 12:00 mn.
They have prepared an array of traditional Chinese activities to celebrate the year of the Fire Monkey, . The celebration will kick off with a Lion Dance and Taoist Blessing to bring good luck to the whole Filipino and Chinese community. There will also be snippets of Feng Shui forecasts and predictions for the upcoming year.
In addition, the hotel will also host its first ever Search for Little Emperor and Empress of Chinatown Lai Lai Hotel. The contest is open to all children around the country from age 5-9 years old, who will compete in Chinese New Year costume, talent showdown and question and answer portion. The winners will be the face of Chinatown Lai Lai Hotel’s print and online advertisements.
Another contest during the celebration will be the 1st Chinatown Lai Lai Hotel Singing Idol. The completion is open to all Filipino/Chinese male and female contestants at least 18-27 years of age. Grand winners will receive cash prizes and gift items from sponsors.
