Final Thoughts

While the Chinese New Year celebration is all about grandiosities and festivities, saving up on food expenses is still possible. After all, there are lots of fast food places and restaurants that offer exclusive promos on Chinese New Year food in the Philippines.

Don’t forget, though, that the celebration should not just be centered on food and merriment. It should also encourage you to be more hopeful about the coming months. 

More importantly, don’t let your guard down as you celebrate the Lunar New Year with your family and friends. Observe social distancing. Keep the celebration small. Sanitize. And of course, get yourself vaccinated.
