Extended family gatherings, lou sang tosses and endless attempts to keep the kids still for the obligatory CNY photo are just some of the things we’ve grown to love about Lunar New Year celebrations. In honour of the occasion, we turn the spotlight on how the friends of Tatler ring in the New Year with a hearty serving of creativity, warmth and family fun.
