Funny how I kept hearing Chinese New Year songs even waaaay before the year 2009 was over. I guess the Chinese folks are pretty enthusiastic about the year of the Tiger!
Anyways, the 1st and earliest Chinese New Year event which I was invited for as a start to 2010 was the Tiger Beer’s Year of the Tiger. Like most events, I had my signature on the photowall. But this one was slightly different
It required all the guests to sign their New Years’ Winning Wishes
As I’ve tweeted a picture before [here]
And soon, more and more people began to fill the place and crowd the photowall!

It was very novel as it was the 1st time I’ve seen a Tiger Dance instead of the usual year-in-year out of a Lion Dance. Tecnically it’s the same routine, but well, they were ingenious enough to replace it with a tiger head.
Awww how cute. I remember as a child of 6, I used to pat/stroke the Lion and told mom I wanted to keep it as a pet. Delusional childhood, I know.
More food was served during the Tiger video presentation. I loved it! It showed us a brief history of how Tiger beer was first brewed and then imported all around the world, it’s gradual branding changes, it’s achievements to what it is today
We all had quite a bit 🙂
Yummy, no doubt
