Si Chuan Dou Hua Restaurants and Central Singapore Community Development Council (CDC) shared the joy of Lunar New Year with 80 underprivileged elderly from the Central Singapore District. Involving staff from every department, the elderly were first engaged in a hands-on dumpling-making session by our team of chefs. Dumplings look like ingots and signify prosperity for the coming year.
They then sat down for an oriental high tea reception, which kicked off with a spirited toss of the auspicious yusheng. The God of Fortune also made a surprise appearance to distribute red packets and spread the festive cheer as the elderly indulged in the scrumptious dim sum spread.
The highlight of the evening was an impromptu sing-along segment led by our management. The crowd cheered and sang along to nostalgic hits in Mandarin and familiar dialects, including Tian Mi Mi’(‘ 甜蜜蜜’) and ‘Yue Liang Dai Biao Wo De Xin’ (‘ 月亮代表我的心’), famous tunes of the late legendary singer Teresa Teng.
