It's Chinese New Year on Monday, February 8, which means we've got a long weekend up ahead.
Rather than resting your lazy asses home, why don't you celebrate with our Chinese brothers? No, we aren't trying to tell you to ask manang to cook pancit, tikoy, and dumplings (although those aren't a bad idea). What we're trying to tell you is to have fun outside your house.
Below are five awesome ideas you might want to consider!
1) 10th Spring Film Festizal
WHEN: Now until February 7, 2:30 PM
WHERE: Shangri-La Plaza, Mandaluyong
WHAT'S UP: Usher in the (Chinese) New Year with stories of hugot and comedy in the latest edition of the Chinese Spring Film Festival. To name a few of the movies you can see: Lost in Thailand, East Wind Rain and Qui Xi.
Admission is free.
2) Good Life Flavors of Fortune
WHEN: February 5 to 8
