Happy February! This month is extra special this year as it contains two big celebrations – Chinese New Year and Valentine’s Day. Both are red letter days for everyone. Families, friends , couples, both the young and old are now beginning to make plans on how to best spend these memorable dates.
Celebrate the Year of the Fire Monkey
Do you believe in predictions? Well, there’s no harm in knowing what the year forbodes. Based on the Chinese Calendar, 2016 will turn out to be a lucky year for those born under the Monkey sign –especially those whose births fall under the element of fire.
On February 7, the eve of the New Year, chinese lanterns and red flowers will adorn the halls of the Grande Dame. Guests are invited to take part in the revelry of the Draogn’s Eye Dotting Ceremony complete with a special lion and dragon dance. In addition, world-renowned feng shui expert Master Joseph Kam Shing together with his son Master Vittorio Chau will share their fortune predictions.
Of course, this event would not be complete without the traditional “Niangao” or tikoy. This traditional treat is made from glutinous rice flour which symbolizes longevity, progress and a better life. Beautifully packaged in oriental gift boxes, these famous and well loved delicacies are available for purchase at the Hotel’s prosperity booth at the Grand Lobby. Head on to the Mabuhay Palace for mouth-watering dishes with their special Chinese spread. Families of four and couples can choose from set menus for only PhP2,288.00 Net.
There’s no need to fuss over Valentine’s Day preparations. Manila Hotel has everything covered and prepared just for its special guests. Honeymoon Suites. Romantic dinner for two. Flowers. Chocolates and fine wine. Signature Massages at the Spa. Even Valentango ( a romantic spectacle of live tango music and dance performances by professional tango dancers). These are but a few of their delightful surprises. “Make your loved one fall in love with you again on this special day. Celebrate love and happiness over a lavish Cantonese Dinner prepared by Executive Chef Sun Bing at the Mabuhay Palace, enjoy the 8 stations-buffet at Café Ilang-ilang or share a special 6-course dinner by Executive Chef Kinrad Walter under crystal palms at the Champagne Room,” says Dr. Enrique Y.
