Catching luck at Conrad

The world went through rough times last year. From volcanic eruptions, a global pandemic to subsequent typhoons, 2020 was definitely a period everybody wasn’t prepared for.

As we welcome the second month of 2021, hopes rise anew for a better tomorrow with the anticipated Year of the Metal Ox on 12 February. The domesticated mammal is the second among the Chinese zodiac animals and is known for representing positivity, hard work and honesty. Thus, these qualities are projected to manifest in all of us in the coming months.

At Conrad Manila, the auspicious Chinese New Year (CNY) is celebrated with well-curated feasts including the traditional Yee Sang Prosperity Toss and colorful Nian Gao Treasures at its China Blue, an award-winning restaurant tailored by chef Jereme Leung.

Celebrate the Year of the Metal Ox with China Blue’s well-loved dishes: Golden roast US duck with BBQ sauce, Braised abalone, sea cucumber and dried oyster in a superior shredded mushroom and dried scallop sauce; Simmered pork belly, money bag and fried fish maw with whole garlic. These epicurean meals are available a la carte or in a set menu fit for 10 persons or more. Its Yee Sang, Suckling Pig and Peking Duck are also available for pre-order and takeout.

Until 13 February, Conrad Manila guests can bring home a box of Nian Gao (tikoy) in the following flavors: Traditional brown sugar, Coconut, Orange and Red date with ginger. Each is beautifully presented with koi fish or mini gold bar shapes to attract success and good fortune. Nian Gao Treasures are available in either the collector’s edition Christy Ng designer bag or the Conrad Manila box.

“We are delighted to welcome the Chinese New Year as we celebrate the many milestones and courageous feats displayed by Conrad Manila’s esteemed guests and team members during this time. We wish everyone good health, prosperity, peace and rebuilding in the Lunar New Year,” Linda Pecoraro said, Conrad Manila’s general manager.
