Seniors jubilantly tossed the 'yusheng' (a platter of colourful salad and raw fish) while reciting well wishes to usher in prosperity and good health in the year of the dragon. The seniors then enjoyed a sumptuous buffet lunch at the Carlton Hotel Singapore, with Ms Chia. Following the buffet lunch, CNY cookies were distributed to the seniors.  

"We thank Darren and the team at Carlton Hotel Singapore for hosting and organising this meaningful initiative. This festive treat will create wonderful memories for the seniors this festive season. We look forward to future collaborations with Carlton Hotel!" said Ms Chan.
