Historically, Early Cebuanos had closely linked themselves with the immigrant merchants from China. From the vestiges of the past, traces of Chinese influences are strongly seen from the old houses, old businesses in the urban downtown as well as the emerging families that molded the trade and commerce landscape of the City even to this day.
Cebu is practically a huge “Chinatown” with the proliferation of Filipino-Chinese families all over the city, not to mention the ever growing number of Chinese tourists visiting our island paradise.
How I wish Cebu will have a “Sinulog-like” celebration of the Chinese New Year as it is one of the most sought after celebrations in our beloved City. While waiting for my dream for Cebu to have a grand City-wide Chinese New Year Celebration, Let’s celebrate the special occasion in a grand fashion at Waterfront Cebu City Hotel and Casino for the meantime. The hotel’s celebration has been regarded as one of the most sought after events in the city by everyone, whether with Chinese descent or none.

Yee Sang, symbolic of good luck, prosperity, health and all things auspicious.
Yee Sang comprises thin slices of pickled vegetables and other ingredients which are mixed together thoroughly when the dish is eaten. The taste of the dish is enhanced by its special sauce which imparts a distinctive flavour.
The popular custom is for all round the dining table to toss the ingredients high in the air with joyful exclamations of “Loh Hey” (toss high). The significance of the tossing is to wish for abundant luck and happiness for all. The enjoyment of Yee Sang during Chinese New Year is an age-old custom steeped in ancient tradition and culture.
Usher in good luck, prosperity and wealth as we all greet the Year of the Rooster this January 27, 2017 at Tin Gow. Bring in family and friends!
