A Lion's Heart

The Spring Festival is just a few days away and all across The Sutera Harbour Resort, you can see the evidence of this auspicious celebration.

The lobbies are adorned with oriental trappings of Chinese lanterns, mock firecrackers, plum blossoms and Mandarin oranges.

These decorations carry with them special meanings to the Lunar New year. The Chinese lanterns symbolise joy and good fortune for the coming year.

In the olden days, the Chinese set off fireworks and firecrackers to drive away evil spirits. The hanging of these décors symbolises our gesture of faith that no evil may harm our year.

The plum blossoms signify perseverance and hope, as well as beauty, purity, and the transitions of life while Mandarin oranges indicate abundance and prosperity.

Perhaps, the most significant affair in every Chinese New Year, is the Lion Dance. The lion dance is a traditional Chinese dance performed on big occasions for good luck, as it is believed that the lion is an auspicious animal.

Every year, guests and members of the public are more than welcome to witness this spectacular martial-art-choreographed dances across our Resort.
