Cafe What's Up!

Welcoming the Year of the Earth Dog

Join Marco Polo Plaza as they kick off the festivities with the annual Yee Sang Tossing Ceremony to be participated in by special guests from the Filipino-Chinese community. In keeping up with tradition, Marco Polo Plaza will once again prepare a giant Yee Sang bowl at the lobby where special guests can toss the salad with their signature giant chopsticks. This tradition is also known as a Prosperity Toss and it is said that the higher you toss the salad into the air, the more luck you will have.

Aside from the Yee Sang ceremony on February 15, a lion and dragon dance will also commence at the hotel to bring in more good fortune. There will also be the traditional tossing of coins, eye dotting ceremony and lighting up of firecrackers to ward away evil. Another ceremony will also be held on the morning of February 16.
Also happening from February 15 to 18 is the Culinary Impressions of China. Indulge in sumptuous Chinese dishes at Café Marco with your family and friends!
