The Chinatown Community in the city has hosted a New Year’s Eve dinner – for Chinese and locals. The decorations were especially significant for the year of the monkey. And a feast of traditional foods was served. The highlight of the evening was a lottery, with the top prize an international trip to China. Airlines like Emirates, Singapore, and Qatar gave the prizes, and said they hoped the tickets will bring people closer together – and bring good luck in the year of the monkey.
