Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner 2013 @ Northpoint Residences, Mid Valley City
As we usher in the Chinese New Year, the team sat down together to sumptuous Family Dinner on the evening of the eve of the new year. We would like to wish our readers Gong Xi Fa Cai and may the year of the water snake brings everyone an abundance of wealth and health. Enjoy the photos of our humble, yet abundant food the night before.
During the Chinese New Year's Eve, without fail, families will gather for a feast known as ''Tuan Yuan Fan'', literally translated as Reunion Dinner. Chinese New Year’s Eve dinner is the biggest event for this festival, this meal is comparable to Christmas dinner in the West. After dinner, some families go to local temples hours before the New Year begins to pray for a prosperous new year by lighting the first incense of the year. However in modern practice, many households hold parties, even hold a countdown to the New Year and will end the night with firecrackers. Traditionally, firecrackers were once lit to scare away evil spirits with the household doors sealed. Fireworks must be lit before 24:00 on the New Year’s Eve.
