Last month, Plantation Island Resort joined with millions of Chinese people and friends of China around the world in celebrating Chinese New Year. This year, the new year landed on Tuesday 5th February, and we celebrated the beginning of the year of the Pig!
Plantation Island Resort celebrated Chinese New Year with a selection of traditional Chinese dishes available alongside delicious and specially prepared Fijian favorites. At the resort, families and kids enjoyed a full day of activities and fun to celebrate the diversity of cultures, faiths and ethnicities that abound in Fiji in general and at the resort in particular. Fijians love to celebrate this diversity throughout the year, and now, during spring with its beautiful weather is a great excuse to bust out the fireworks and all the best food.
There were of course a selection of traditional Chinese dishes, alongside delicious and specially prepared favourites of the resort.
The Pig in Chinese culture symbolises wealth and good fortune. People born in the year of the pig are often optimistic and enthusiastic, as well as being practical and hardworking – much like the staff of Plantation Island!
Truly, we celebrated generosity and a year of good fortune for all – and for you, too.
