Chinese New Year 2022
Licky Chan – Not Your Basic Lou Sang
To toss things up, the team at Licky Chan took one of our favourite things about Chinese New Year and gave it a Licky twist for 2022! They present “Not Your Basic Lou Sang (RM 88),” a boozy carrot cake delivered in a beautiful box filled with ong!
They created this Lou Sang with not so basic ingredients: carrot cake with whisky soaked raisins, carrot bacon, cinnamon crumble, whisky caramel (Dewar’s 12 Years), candied peanuts, white sesame brittle and dried pineapple. There’s an option to add on our special CNY ice cream “Turn Down for Huat” with Dewars 12 Whisky, Raisins and Tonka Bean (RM45++), and boy have those raisins soaked up the booze!
For individual immediate orders and pre-orders visit Licky Chan on Beepit. For bulk purchases and discounts on multiple orders send them a message on WhatsApp +6011 2197 3992.

Sunday Bedding – Sustainable Gifting
With Sunday Bedding, you can honour the tradition of buying new clothes and home decor for Chinese New Year and do so sustainably. New beginnings and fresh starts are central to the Chinese New Year celebration. With this in mind, Sunday Bedding has launched bamboo sateen bed linen sets in Pistachio, Vanilla Mist and Summer Peach shades to brighten up your bedroom this Lunar New Year and transform your personal sanctuaries with the promise of new beginnings every day for the rest of the year of the tiger.
Sunday Bedding’s eco-friendly fabrics have a high sustainability rating and are ethically cut and sewn by a third-generation, family-owned business in Hong Kong that is also SEDEX-certified.
Sunday bedding is working on shifting all of their bedsheets to bamboo rayon and French linen. Bamboo rayon uses 80% less water than the cultivation of cotton, and French Linen is derived from flax. Every part of the flax plant can be used making it highly versatile. They constantly work towards reducing water and energy consumption, and have managed to reduce chemicals so much in production that their “waste” water is even potable!

The fruit basket is a brilliant idea, healthy some more! Must have pomelo and golden mandarins, other than the pineapple (king/good luck coming – the name in Chinese) for good luck! Not into yee sang and lou sang, what a mess…and so wasteful but it sure is very popular, everybody’s doing it, it seems. The meat platters from Taste Buddies look gorgeous!
This is a great list to choose from!
Everyone has definitely put their best foot forward! Especially after last year’s cancellations.
