Woohoo, so what’s up after Jingle Bell and New Year?
Of course, it would be the “Gong Xi Fa Cai” festive!
The CNY, Chinese New Year, also known as Lunar New Year, is probably the next takeaway for us to escape the reality from current pandemic conditions. This year’s Chinese New Year falls on 12 February 2021, Friday, marks the beginning of the year of Ox (Cow). The celebration of the festive has a history of over 3,000 years which dated back to the ancient worship of heaven and earth. This precious time is best for friends, relatives, families, colleagues, and acquaintances to be together for quality time once again. FYI, all our foods are Muslim-friendly so it can be shared among all Malaysians! Fun fact: CNY is best known as the Spring Festival in China because it starts at the beginning of Spring.

The dinner on Chinese New Year Eve is called “reunion dinner” which is often regarded as the most important meal of the year. Family members are required to gather together for the dinner and often served with feast meals. It represents the welcome of the desire for a new life. Some people do not know that those dishes in the dinner carry symbolic meanings where dish like fish (yu) means “surplus” in Chinese sound while the glutinous rice suggests “an increase in income or position”. That’s why it is said to be the most important meal of the year.
