A royal Chinese New Year

The Royal Mandaya Hotel burst into excitement with drumbeats and traditional lion dances to usher in the Chinese Lunar Year 2017.

It has been a tradition at TRMH to celebrate the Lunar New Year as it is the most important of all traditional Chinese holidays. Also known as Chinese New Year, or the Spring Festival, it marks the first day of the New Year in the Lunar calendar.

At this year’s CNY celebration, guests of TRMH were treated to the old Chinese tradition of bringing in the luck to kick off the year.

A Chinese dance presentation set the mood for the CNY night while guests scribble their good wishes and paste them up on the fortune wall.

The Parade of Waiters brought in the special CNY banquet at the Kamayo Café where diners were also treated to special fortune cookies inside of which are good wishes and special giveaways for lucky guests.

The celebration would not be complete without the Lion Dance which was performed by the Kim Ling Kungfu Lion Dragon Dance Troupe.

Diners at the Kamayo Café also enjoyed 20 percent discount on the CNY dinner.

No less than TRMH General Manager Benjie Banzon and his staff were on hand to personally welcome guests and joined the revelry.

It was another fortune-filled year past and with heaps of hope, another one coming as the Rooster crows for the good ones in 2017.
