“What better way to celebrate Chinese New Year than with the special dishes that our chefs have prepared,” said Gordon Foo, Managing Director of CityBar Holdings Limited, which owns Shanghai Dolly. “This spread has been a hit since we launched it on February 1. We have received rave reviews and these items will be available till March 3.”
The evening’s song-and-dance performances, featuring artistes from China, Hong Kong, Malaysia and Singapore, will be led by Chinese singer Kiki, who will do a farewell gig. Guests, expected to number more than 800, will get $8,888 worth of giveaways, including cash and bottle vouchers. The countdown will be from 11.45pm to 12.30am and the party will continue till 4am.
“I am looking forward to the countdown party at Shanghai Dolly,” said Gerald Tan, 32, a corporate lawyer. “I will be there with my group of family and friends. I just love the ambience of the place and I’m sure there will be great entertainment for us on February 15. Good food, music, fun and laughter – the place simply rocks!”
