RSA House welcomed 100 industry professionals including representatives from Espírito Santo Financial Group, ECL Global, Hillgate Solutions, Deva Events and Pure Consulting to its Chinese and Korean inspired New Year party, ’Year of the Horse’.
Traditional Chinese music played in the background as guests were shown to the Benjamin Franklin room for the New Year party celebrations. Inside, Chinese lanterns were suspended from the ceiling and the space was lit-up in hues of red and amber, lucky colours in Chinese culture.
Waitresses in patterned traditional Chinese dress served guests a selection of Chinese and Korean cuisine including canapes of curried kimchi pancakes, scallop, pickled mushrooms and kimchi. Food stations were also provided including a sushi bar and street food stall dishing up spicy rice cake, prawn tempura and seaweed rolls.
A lion dance was performed accompanied by live drum, symbols and gong. Guests also had the opportunity to hear their fortunes told and a calligrapher translated guest’s names into Chinese as a keepsake from the evening.
