The Chinese New Year’s Eve celebrations were already underway from as early as 10pm at the Mandarin Oriental Manila last February 9, 2013.
Mandarin Oriental has again outdone themselves this year with an even bigger attendance and a fun-filled itinerary for each of the guests who attended, as well as for the revelers on the street who came out to accept the Chinese New Year’s blessings from famed geomancer Master Joseph Chau
and to witness Enchanted Kingdom’s elaborate fireworks display.
Guests at the Mandarin were later treated to a sumptuous and auspicious first meal for the Year of the Snake, with drinks provided for by Moet Hennessy. Everyone was likewise treated to a jaw-dropping display of live sand art from the very talented “Joseph the Artist” who had won the prize in “Talentadong Pinoy”.
