Food, Family and Prosperity: Celebrate the Good Life this Chinese New Year at TriNoma from February 5 to 8
Gongxi facai! For many people around the world, the Chinese New Year signals a fresh start; a time of hope and exciting opportunities. A grand celebration, the Chinese New Year or Spring Festival pays tribute to ancient cultural traditions and customs. It is also an event that bonds family and friends together for good food, warm fellowship and endless laughter.
In the Philippines, the Chinese New Year has become one of the highly anticipated holiday events not only among the Filipino-Chinese community but also for Filipinos who actively take part in the celebrations in hopes of receiving great tidings in the Year of the Monkey. Symbolical food and dishes are also the centerpiece of the festivities to bring year-long prosperity. And because eating is considered a happy affair, symbolical delicacies are generously shared among family and friends to bring good fortune and harmony. Among these are noodles (for longevity), rice cakes (for prosperity), dumplings (for good luck), chicken or duck (for unity and family togetherness) and fish (for abundance).
Just like 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. As a tribute to Filipinos who cook for their families “from the heart”, one leading food brand – Good Life – proudly brings the distinct Asian culinary flavors into more Filipino kitchens and family occasions.
Offering a complete line of Asian food products that bring out the genuine taste and flavor of your favorite Asian dishes since year 2000, Good Life – which name is inspired by the Chinese’s common association of longevity with noodles — carries products like Vermicelli, Egg Noodles, Bihon, Sesame Oil, Oyster Sauce and Japanese-Style Bread Crumbs.
