We are a fan of dining in a restaurant for Yee Sang session so naturally, we were more inclined to their aggregated offers. Here are some exciting deals in Kuala Lumpur offered by Fave. Do remember, these deals are not just limited to KL so be sure to browse for deals near you.


New Year’s Eve is equally as exciting as Chinese New Year itself. Reunion dinners, ang pao and staying up till the clock strikes 12 are all part of the excitement!

Chinese New Year To-Go Places and Events

During New Year Eve, it’s common for the night skies to be lit with beautiful fireworks. Fireworks are lit to scare away lunar new year monsters (Nian) and this tradition has been practiced in the Chinese Community for centuries. It’s time to put your wallet to rest and enjoy the year’s most auspicious day! Set the fireworks away and let your eyes feast the beauty of Chinese New Year. Many also tend to visit temples to offer sacrifices to their ancestors or to simply gain blessings. Here is a list we’ve sourced from Wonderful Malaysia and Malaysia Traveller to suggest top places to visit for Chinese New Year. As the season festivity means a troublesome parking situation, ease all hassle with Boost’s Park and Pay feature or get to your destination with EzCab with Boost’s exclusive vouchers We still vouch for Grab’s Transport Services so do check your GrabReward to get a discount off your trip. We’re also huge fans of Touch n’Go eWallet’s Pay Direct and RFID services which will definitely make your journey more pleasant (especially at tolls!).
