Fortune Favors the Bold

At the beginning of every lunar new year – celebrated in several Asian countries and famously known for the Chinese New Year celebration aka Spring Festival, Chinese and Vietnamese communities worldwide light up with a fireworks display. Families gather for a reunion dinner. This year, however, may be different as the world is still battling the pandemic.

Despite the challenges, the Hilton Garden Inn KL South is determined to go ahead with its annual Chinese New Year offering – and who can blame them? The communities need an encouraging call to start the year fresh with positivity, mainly since the Year of the Ox represents diligence, honesty, strength, and determination. 

What sets them apart is that they understand the importance of honoring traditions, bringing families together, and the food’s significance at the reunion table. For example, fish at the dinner table represents ‘surplus’, signifying a wish for abundance; dumplings represent great wealth due to their shape like a Chinese gold coin, while noodles are all about longevity and smoothness. Not to mention the famous Malaysian Lou Sang, which is an opportunity for families and friends to make a toss for their wishes to come true.

Suppose the covid-19 situation is managed, and authorities have declared that it is safe for all Malaysians to venture out again. In that case, communities deserve its big, beginning of the year opportunity to clink glasses and make a toss for good fortunes. It is worth looking into Hilton’s Honor Traditions, Renew Fortunes offering at:
