Chinese New Year is one of the most

People customarily participate in parades and dragon dances that are organized and held in Binondo (China Town). The most known tradition include firecrackers that are believed to drive off bad luck and

the Tikoy, a Chinese sticky sweet treat that symbolizes the attraction of good luck.

In line with all the merriments, we would like to remind everyone to follow these precautions:

Handle fireworks with caution

only buy legal fireworks from reputable stores.  Always read the instructions and make sure you take all the necessary precautions before lighting them

Smoke Detector

Make sure you installed the Meiji Smoke Detector with Alarm (MSD-01/ MSD-02)
in your kitchens and never leave your cooking unattended. This stand-alone smoke detector alarms you when it detects smoke; to avoid the tragedies of fire.

Keep Candles Out of Reach

Keep candles out of reach of children and combustible materials. After all the gatherings, check for smouldering cigarette butts or firecrackers and extinguish it properly

Avoid Overloading

Avoid overloading electrical sockets and extension sets. An extension set has a limit to how many amperes it can take so, to help reduce the risk of fire, be careful not to overload them. The Meiji 13 and 20 Series Extension Cord (MES-1303 to 1306, WRP 2104/ 2027) has a
power rating from 1,200 to 2,500 Watts that comes in 3 to 5-meter ranges. It consists of 3 to 6 international outlets for the 13 series and 3 parallel outlets for the 20 series. CNY dishes

Filipino-Chinese communities in the Philippines
celebrate Chinese New Year every year in hope of attracting prosperity, closer family ties and peace. Most Filipino-Chinese families usually clean their homes thoroughly, prepare lucky money in red envelopes, serve sweet foods and display various food and fruits on a table, which is believed to invite good fortune.  So for all the Filipino Chinese Community, Kiong Hee Huat Tsai!
