Singapore Dinner
February 16, 2019
Abundant celebration of Lo Hei

According to the Chinese Zodiac, 2019 is the year of the earth element Pig - a great year to make money and a good year to invest. Pigs are known for their loyalty to friends, generosity and general abundance in all their endeavours.

As such, the Bailliage organised an abundant feast for 135 members and guests in the tradition of our lavish Lunar New Year celebrations.

Tien Court, a top Cantonese restaurant in Singapore, was selected to host this event. Maximum capacity for the restaurant was reached within two weeks of announcement!

The celebrations began with canapés - lychee pork with tea-smoked duck, Japanese sake, Abalone with Century Egg - accompanied by Forget-Brimont Brut Champagne.

We were treated to new items on the menu. The survey later revealed that the two top dishes of the night were the Prosperity hamachi and the King’s Treasures Pot.

Our very own Archivist Kung Teong Wah, who is General Manager of the Copthorne Kings Hotel, graciously engaged the Golden Lotus trio who entertained us with a rendition of Chinese classical tunes.

What a great celebration to start the Chinese New Year with friends, generosity and general abundance. It was perfection in all aspects!
