QVB CNY Lion Dances

Join the parade from January 15 to February 5 at the QVB for dancing lions that climb up escalators to the beat of vibrant drummers.

As you do, I was just window shopping at expensive shops at the QVB when I heard loud strumming music accompanied by flashes of red going from one side to the other.”

From above, red and gold coloured lanterns bring thoughts of ‘blessing.’

I make my way down to the ground floor and follow the celebration of wild dancing and banging music.

I really liked how the crowd all came together. It was literally a paparazzi!

Remember lions do have a somewhat dangerous nature.

Look out for the $28 banquet special from Fat Buddha and gift set from T2.

It was pretty awesome as the lions went up the escalators and pretty much went weaving through every level. Not a shop assistant will miss out on the celebrations.

Review Rating: =D  =)  =|  =(

Product (QVB lion dancing): =D

Ambience: =D

Service: =)

Value: =)

Would I go to the QVB Chinese New Year celebrations every year? If I’m passing by, why not. There are many other opportunities to see lion dances. If it’s your first time, why not.

Would I pay to watch loom dances? Not really. I mean, as mentioned before a lot lf other shopping centres do it. Chinatown, Chatswood…

Highlight: receiving that fortune cookie. If you know me personally, I’ve been looking for a full time job for more almost 9 months and things aren’t shaping up nicely even with my resume…

Suggestion of improvement: you know what they should’ve done? It’s tradition to enter every single shop and to dance around and offer them red pockets. I think I’ve only seen it done in Chatswood and asked my parents about it. It’s entertaining and gets all the shops involved!
