Santan Celebrates Lunar New Year with "Ong Ong Lai" Drink Series
In a vibrant tribute to the Lunar New Year, Santan has unveiled its "Ong Ong Lai" drink collection, a Chinese New Year Limited Edition range that celebrates the themes of prosperity and good fortune. Launching on January 31st, these drinks embody the spirit of the season, marked by renewal, abundance, and optimism.
The "Ong Ong Lai" range, a name resonating with auspiciousness, is meticulously curated to enhance the festive mood. Each drink in the collection is not just a beverage but a symbol of well-wishes and cultural significance. For instance, the Pineapple Jasmine Green Tea, representing "Blossoming prosperity," skillfully marries the tropical sweetness of pineapple with the subtle aroma of jasmine, rounded off by the grounding notes of green tea.
Equally tantalizing is the Pineapple Coconut Milk, symbolizing "Flourishing Fortune." This drink blends the tangy essence of pineapple with creamy coconut milk, offering an indulgent sip of the tropics. For coffee enthusiasts, the Fizzy Pineapple Americano, with a message of "Good and beautiful things are happening," combines the robustness of coffee with the freshness of pineapple, adding a fizzy twist that intrigues the palate.
Moreover, the Fizzy Pineapple, heralding "Prosperity and Good Fortune," offers a refreshing take on traditional pineapple juice, infusing it with effervescence for a lively and vibrant taste.
Catherine Goh, General Manager of Santan, expressed the company's creative approach to Chinese traditions in crafting these drinks. They are designed to align with cultural nuances, conveying wishes of abundance and success. Santan invites everyone to explore these flavors and celebrate the Lunar New Year with joy and happiness.
These unique beverages will be available on all AirAsia and AirAsia X flights, as well as at Santan cafes, starting January 31st. Priced at RM12 each, they can be paired with any meal for an additional RM10, adding a festive touch to the dining experience during the Chinese New Year travels.
