Celebrate the Year of the Snake and usher in the Lunar New Year with us as Sheraton Imperial Kuala Lumpur’s Celestial Court goes all out to tempt your eyes, satisfy your senses and whet your appetite with a variety of sumptuous delights.

The Lunar New Year is the most important date in the Chinese calendar and is an elaborate celebration in many parts of Asia. Additionally, there are 12 Chinese Zodiac signs and for the year 2013, it is the Year of the Snake. The Snake carries the meaning of malevolence, cattiness and mystery. In certain places or culture, people believe that if they found a snake in their court, the family will be delighted. Also, people like to paste the paper-cut ‘Fu’ (wealth) character in an upside down position on their doors or windows, combined with a snake twisting around a rabbit as a popular pattern to indicate wealth.

Welcome to House of Tang that serve exquisite food with very homey ambiance that suits modern Chinese New Year, most families have opted to eat outside for reunion dinner compare to eat at home therefore, most of the restaurant now are bracing and working harder to cater for most of the crowd even on eve and the first day of Chinese New Year.

Foodie CNY (5)

As you can have all your kids playing around in the garden and like us Kung fu master wanna be(its not easy to stand up in the wood, u need to master the art of balancing in order to strike this pose). Then with our mom will be shouting, come in eat d la..play play play..how many time want to say..later only play lah~

Foodie CNY (6)

Reunion dinner is always about the warm and bond of a family, most of us have not seen each other for quite some time with our busy schedule yet this is the only time where everyone sit down together, have a great laughter and updates on what’s happening with all of us.

To me, family value is very important as I was tought since when I was a kid, therefore reunion dinner is a must not miss thing.

Foodie CNY (7)

Foodie CNY (8)

This is when girls talk are always on the table and guys will always talk by the side and this is when how a great family and friends get together in ushering Chinese New Year.

For Chinese culture in Malaysia and Singapore during Chinese New Year, Lou Sang is one of the norm that most families and friends will not miss. As the ingredient in such as fish signify abundance, homophone for Yu Sang, therefore by doing Lou Sang it means increase abundance and prosperity.

Foodie CNY (22)

All of us waiting to Lou Sang.

Equipment needed: A Pair of Chopsticks!

Another norm in Yu Sang which is everyone will have to equip themselves with chopsticks and dig into the dish and while tossing together and wishing your wish for the year. The higher you toss, signifies greater fortunes and wish will come true.
