Good Life & Prosperous Chinese New Year to All!

Today is Chinese New Year and Seats For Two would like to greet everyone “Gong Xi Fa Cai“! It means “wishing you to be prosperous in the coming year.

Just the other day, we kind-of celebrated the Lunar New Year in advance already as the “Good Life” food brand hosted the “Good Life Flavors of Fortune” since February 5, 2016 until today, at the TriNoma Activity Center.

Chinese New Year

Also known as the Spring Festival, Chinese New Year is the longest and most significant celebration in the Chinese calendar. It is not only a time to honour cultural traditions and customs, but also a time for families to bond over good food and warm fellowship.

Similar with the Chinese, Filipinos have strongly associated meaningful occasions with celebratory food. For instance, noodle dishes, which are a staple in Chinese cuisine, have become part of almost every important celebration and life milestone, like birthdays, graduations, fiestas and holidays.

And in this aspect, the “Good Life” food brand plays a big part in Filipino kitchens and family occasions. They offer a complete line of Asian food products including Vermicelli, Egg Noodles, Bihon, Sesame Oil, Oyster Sauce and Japanese-Style Bread Crumbs.

Visitors were able to have a taste of culinary feast from the Good Life Chinese Food Fair including the 1st ever Good Life Chinese Culinary Cook Off in partnership with the Center for Culinary Arts Manila.
