We’re well and truly into 2017 (kinda) and if you’re still trying to figure out how to do the best version of you (it’s hard), we have a plan. This January get yourself to The Galeries STAT to guarantee yourself some luck, good fortune or, at the very least, a whole lotta dumplings this Lunar New Year.
From January 28th the laneways will be transformed into Artasia—see what they did there? With installations from emerging street artists scattered throughout the centre, and come February 2nd you can expect to see an intense Masterchef episode IRL.
Hosted by the reigning Masterchef 2009 champ himself, Adam Liaw, Battle of the Woks will see Hotto Motto repping Japan, Chat Thai heading up Thailand, Jimmy’s Recipe playing for Malaysia and Lotus standing tall for China, in a cook off bonanza from 12pm. Using a top-secret ingredient provided by AYAM™ we strongly recommend you wear your stretchy pants.
Shop til you drop and toast to the year of the rooster in style (aka with all of the food), then head to the ground floor on February 3rd for a game of AYAM™ Zodiac Roulette. That’s right, Zodiac Roulette. It’s a very much a thing, analysing your generational and personality traits, before matching them with your 2017 Zodiac dish. You’ll even get one of the ingredients from the dish to take home. See you there.
