CNY 2013 with GAB

Come the CNY, there's plenty of yee sang, lion dances, dragon dances and of course we all raise our glasses and cheer yumseng with our loved ones and friends. My all time fave would definitely the ruby red goodness of Guinness. Of course we also stock up the golden goodness of Tiger and Anchor for our beer loving folks.

This year GAB celebrates the lunar new year with the iconic Fu, Lu and Shou. I confess that I always thought they were some kind of lion or dragons...until Viv explained to me they were the 3 characters that Fu (福), Lu (禄) and Shou (寿) represent fortune, prosperity and longevity.
These lions are not fu lu shou!
These are fu lu shou 福禄寿!

Throughout the festive season, consumers can check the bottle cap liners of any big bottle of Guinness, Tiger and Anchor to see if they have won one of 9 solid gold Fu Lu Shou sets worth RM 10,000 each, 999 gold-plated Fu Lu Shou sets worth RM 1,000 each or to redeem 18 bottle liners for a Fu Lu Shou set to usher in good favour, wealth and health throughout the year ahead.

• Red Cap Liners win you a solid gold Fu Lu Shou set worth RM 10,000
Total: 9 prizes
• Blue Cap Liners wins you a gold-plated Fu Lu Shou set worth RM 1,000
Total: 999 prizes 
• 18 x Black Cap Liners wins you a Fu Lu Shou set


This year, GAB will also be organizing a series of charity dinners to raise funds for worthy causes such as for the refurbishment of the Chan She Shu Yuen Clan Association (陈氏书院) Hall as well as six other Chinese communities and villages across the country. These fundraising events will feature a Chinese dinner with Yee Sang and GAB’s iconic beers, great live entertainment and an all-round memorable time for all attendees, as well as a charity bazaar that also contributes funds towards the worthy cause of the dinners. I attended the first one held at SRK (K) Chung Kwo with lots of food, buzz and fun.
My first time taking part in a communal yee sang with at least 30 other tables of people.
Simple and very yummy hot and cold platter. Doesn't look like our usual ones because the caterer came all the way from Tanjung Karang. Smitten by their cooking, I will be making a trip there to check out their restaurant:D
Braised pork trotter complete with peanuts and oysters. Totally auspicious dish as the uncle behind me keeps telling me.
I learnt that Guinness goes really well with your braised soup served during Chinese dinners. You use it as a replacement for vinegar!
Fu Lu Shou go gangnam style! Note the uncle in red tie on the left strutting his gangnam movements to win some awesome goodie from GAB.
Dinner with the pals and our choice of Guinness, Tiger or Anchor.
