1. MOVIDA Kitchen+Terrace Chinese New Year Open House

Starting with non-stop buffet and free-flow of Carlsberg Draught beer for one hour, patrons of MOVIDA Kitchen+Terrace, Ipoh partied the night away during this Chinese New Year Open House on Feb 26, 2016.

Despite hosting the open house some days after Chap Goh Meh, the official wrapping up of the Lunar New Year celebrations, a festive air still permeated the restaurant / bar as revellers wished one another “Gong Xi Fa Cai!”

Due to the nature of business, MOVIDA treated the lions to, what else, but beer! One of the lions got itself drunk after downing a bottle, as can be seen in Photo #3 above.
