Famous Pacific Shipping (FPS) Melbourne has welcomed in the Chinese New Year with a glittering function to celebrate the Year of the Tiger.
More than 100 especially invited guests enjoyed a traditional Chinese nine-course banquet at one of Melbourne’s best Chinese restaurants, the Shark Fin House in the city’s China town.
As well as sampling the most exquisite and authentic Cantonese cuisine in the state of Victoria, guests also watched a traditional Chinese lion dance. Every guest was given a tiger figurine as a keepsake by FPS Melbourne.
Sam Aparo, FPS Melbourne Director, was in no doubt that his ambition to impress and delight his guests with the biggest and best entertainment to see in the Year of the Tiger, had completely succeeded.
Mr Aparo says: “This year we wanted to dazzle and please our guests with the best-ever New Year function and I am pleased to say we succeeded. Comments from some of those who attended the evening, show we definitely hit the mark. Our clients are already talking about next year’s function!”
A prize draw with over AUS$3,000 of prizes was held on the evening, with lucky winners taking home a DVD player, digital camera or 42” plasma television.
Mr Aparo reflects that the traditional Chinese animal calendar has fortuitously provided the perfect creature to oversee the start of a worldwide economic recovery as well as symbolising the spirit of FPS Melbourne.
He says: “The Tiger is an apt icon for those who take risks and are displaying courage in the face of the present business environment. FPS Melbourne has seen its market share in Melbourne increase while others have suffered in the global crisis. In the last few years we have built our own multi-million dollar office and warehouse complex as well as establishing a transport division which now allows FPS to provides clients a true logistics solution.
“With the introduction of our Customs bonded warehouse and a transport division which has a fleet of trucks consisting of sideloaders, skell trailers, Tautliner and van, our clients have benefited with improved efficiency as we now provide a truly one stop shop service.”
