Chinese New Year is almost here! For some of us, this year marks the first time we finally get to see loved ones again, meet new additions to the family, and enjoy all the festivities. <3
Whether it's catching up with cousins you haven't seen in forever, dodging relationship questions from all the aunties, or snacking on every kind of treat, Chinese New Year is a precious occasion that brings the whole family together.
From reunion dinner all the way to Chap Goh Mei, celebrations are aplenty throughout the weeks of festivities. However, it's easy for us to get caught up in all the happenings and miss out on special moments to connect with our loved ones.
Instead of spending time listening to Ah Kong's old stories, we're busy scrolling through TikTok to see the latest viral videos. Or, instead of enjoying genuine conversations over family dinner, we distract ourselves with our devices, social media, and online games. :'(
This Year of the Tiger, Guinness wants to remind us all to be more mindful and present — by making the most of our time with family
After all, we only get to see some of our relatives once a year. Plus, Chinese New Year is about making meaningful connections with our loved ones and celebrating for real — our devices, messages, and social media updates can be put on hold for a little while. ;P
To encourage Malaysians to connect with loved ones this Chinese New Year, Guinness is running a contest with amazing prizes up for grabs, woohoo! :D
Stand to win a special Guinness-infused CNY banquet dinner feast, so you can catch up with friends and family over a nice meal.
You could also walk home with an exclusive Chatterbox, a curated box consisting of snacks, Guinness products, and conversation starter cards meant to kickstart meaningful chats.
Guinness wishes all Malaysians a prosperous Chinese New Year, with more meaningful connections and better relationships!

As a reminder, the legal drinking age in Malaysia is 21 years old. That means you need to be 21 and non-Muslim in order to buy and consume alcohol. Remember to always drink responsibly and in moderation. If you plan to drink, try carpooling with a friend who isn't drinking or catch a cab instead of driving.
