These are Fairmont Singapore’s Chinese New Year Blockbuster Cuisine Hits

 


The greatest thing that the Men’s Folio team has seen in 2019 was not the Fyre Festival documentary and neither was it the solar eclipse. If we’re being honest, it was the infamous #NYCSubwayCoffeeRat (look it up on social media, it’s a real thing) and if we were to believe we live in a world where rodents were best friends, it would be BFFs with the #NYCSubwayPizzaRat of 2015 (seriously, look it up). 

What are we trying to say in the above paragraph? It’s that both furry surprises inform how one should take on Chinese New Year 2020 — happily bloated from feasting but still cute. Where do you start adding a few more holes to your belt? Any one of Fairmont Singapore’s restaurants of course.
