The Lunar New Year race meeting at the Sha Tin Racecourse on Tuesday was not short of festive elements.

Actors Liza Wang Ming-chuen and Wayne Lai Yiu-cheung - who said they had spent most of the Lunar New Year working - entertained guests with their singing.

Food show host and DJ So Sze-wong played games and handed out lai see packets, while fung shui master Mak Ling-ling talked about what the various signs of the Chinese zodiac could expect in the Year of the Snake.

To top it all off - probably to appeal to the Chinese love of everything gold - actress Samantha Ko Hoi-ning modelled pure gold accessories made especially for the occasion by jeweller Just Gold. Dressed in - surprise, surprise - a red tube dress, Ko said her New Year's resolution was to buy her own flat. She could have just walked off in the flamboyant gold neckpiece she was wearing.
