Chinese New Year Celebrations @ JinJiang Inn Ortigas

01/30/2017

They have a belief in Chinese that the way you celebrate the first day of the lunar year determines how you will spend the rest of the year. With this in mind I accepted and invitation to celebrate the Chinese New Year at JinJiang Inn in Ortigas.  After all, the place is just 10 minute walk away from my place.

I wore red because black and white is a no-no color for celebrations.  Red is believed to be a lucky color to wear specially during celebrations.  Plus thiss dress was a gift by Feng Shui Master Marites Allen to me.   It  has auspicious symbol printed all over it signifying windfall of good fortune !

Two cute red and green lions was waiting by the entrance of JinJiang Inn.  Some of the foreign guest of the hotel enjoyed the appearance of the lions and took video and photos.  Yes, I also took videos and photos because they are cute and its lucky to have them dance in front of you.

After the dance, they served a Chinese New Year feast lunch at Five Spice.  It’s a Chinese restarant concessionaire of JinJiang Inn in Ortigas.  They served their signature Five Spice dish, the traditional Kikiam they actually serve in China!

JinJiang Inn is part of the Hotel 101 management under Hotel Asia hotel chains and because JinJiang is their hotel brand that is originally Chinese they choose to hold their Chinese New Year Celebrations in here.

I’m looking forward to experience staying in their hotels.  JinJiang Inn Ortigas is popular for business guests as it is in the heart of Ortigas Center along San Miguel Ave corner Lourdes Drive.  They have 90 rooms and 5 suites but no swimming pool though.  It’s mostly for business .

They also have JinJiang Inn in Makati with 50 rooms and 9 suites, InJap Tower in Iloilo with 194 rooms and Hotel 101 Manila in front of SM Mall of Asia with 518 rooms and a pool!
