Richard Yap as the Chinese Emperor
Last Sunday, SM City North EDSA hosted an early Chinese New Year celebration hosted by Chris Tiu at The Block. It was a fun-filled afternoon and hopefully a lot of luck in the coming year of the Dragon.

The Chinese Symphony Orchestra
At the beginning, the history of the Chinese Spring Festival was told by Chris Tiu, with Richard Yap (My Binondo Girl) as the Chinese Emperor. It was then followed by a song number by the Chinese Symphony Orchestra.

Wushu Demo
Dragon Dance
The story continues and demonstrations of Wushu were presented as the Emperor wanted the Chinese dwellers to fight for their kingdom. A dragon and lion dance were also presented to everyone. It is necessary to ward off bad luck and for good fortune to come in.

Outside the SM City North EDSA, Chinese Icons Collectors Exhibit featuring Bruce Lee and Jet Li can be viewed and booths of Chinese charms and ornaments bazaar are within the premises. And of course, the Spring Festival will not be complete without the Chinese delicacies by Polland.
