Ok so most people in Manila who don't want to bother celebrating along a crowd of locals and tourists in Binondo, have eating Chinese food as their way of joining the festivity. Unfortunately my sister, her boyfriend and brother are those people. I, on the other hand, had already lined up an awesome itinerary, with us having to go to Binondo, try authentic Chinese food, watch the dragon dance and buy tikoy, a sticky rice cake.
But since that's 1 verses 3, I had no choice but to go with their idea.
So we went to Greenhills, and hit this Singaporean resto, Crystal Jade to eat some Chinese food.
The food my sister ordered were sweet fried eel,
flavored and original (wasn't able to take a picture of) Xiao long bao
All in all the bill was around P1116. It was satisfying and was enough for the 4 of us.

We also bought ube tikoy in this stall, and ate some yogurt before heading home.
To finally cap this Chinese New Year celebration, we ate fried tikoy with kiat kiat (orange) for dessert.
Happy Chinese New Year Everyone!
May this be a year of prosperous beginnings for you.
