The Joint-Residential Colleges and Old Hall Chinese New Year Fair 2017 was held on 6 February 2017. The purpose of this event is to bring student residents together to celebrate Chinese New Year and to expose the exchange students to the Chinese tradition in Hong Kong by inviting them to join together for this memorable event.

The highlight of the event was Lou Hei, also called Rainbow Salmon Mix which is a very common practice in Malaysia and Singapore. It has many ingredients which makes it very colorful, and has a meaning of good fortune.
