We’re moving on to an exciting weekend with Valentine’s Day, followed by a week of Chinese New Year celebrations. The 19th of February brings upon the new year of the Sheep, a year of tranquility and goodness. The yin energy of the sheep brings about a delicate balance of rejuvenation and calm. Whether you need to mend fences or work on self improvement, this year should be the one to take action.
Our celebration at Naturally Chinese will begin on the 18th of February till the 22nd of February, from 6pm onwards. We have a sumptuous feast of traditional Chinese delights. Here is what’s on the menu;
Naturally Chinese Raw Salad
We will begin with the tossing of the raw salad. The ritual brings together family and friends at a round table. In Chinese culture, a round table signifies an infinite, never ending movement that denotes the circle of life. The fresh salad which has a variety of raw vegetables in seven colours, even smoked salmon, with a light cleansing sauce symbolizes balance and renewed energy. The higher you toss the salad in the air and make your desired wish, the more energy builds and greater prosperity, happiness, fertility and success is bestowed upon you. In addition, you can pick your own red envelope off our money trees. The idea is that money will be in abundance, just like leaves on a tree.
