Happy Chinese New Year, Kung Hei Fat Choy. It’s the year of the Monkey for 2016 and as usual, with the start of the new year, there’s always the lion dance performance.
This year, we had a performance at Shaw Centre on Monday morning. The event was for the Loblaw NKO 2016. The NKO standing for National Kick Off. As T&T Supermarket is owned by Loblaw Companies, it’s fitting with the lion dance to coincide with Chinese New Year. After the performance, I had the opportunity to try out some samples from vendors. Well known brands from Pepsi, Lays and Coca-Cola just to name a few. I tried out Ginger Pepsi and wow, it was pretty intense with the ginger taste.

Another performance we did was at SurveyMonkey in downtown Ottawa. It’s fitting with the year of the Monkey and bring a nice surprise for the employees at the online survey company to celebrate the festivities.
Since it’s the first day of Chinese New Year, there will be several more lion dance performances for this week. Loads of fun and craziness.
