HOUSEWIFE Jina Yu Siu-chun, 53, danced the night away with her friends and relived fond memories as the biggest Chinese restaurant in the world closed its doors for the final time last night. The Ocean City Restaurant and Night Club, which once hosted 5,000 people at 400 tables, held a farewell party for 1,000 people after 20 years in business. 'The first time I came here was on my first date with the man who later became my husband. I had to come here one last time,' said Mrs Yu, the mother of two grown-up children. She gathered her friends from Aberdeen, Causeway Bay and Chai Wan to join in last night's 'historical moment' at the restaurant in the New World Centre, Tsim Sha Tsui. 'We come here once again to say farewell to our memories of our younger life when this restaurant looked extraordinarily luxurious to us,' Mrs Yu said. 'I am so sorry to see it close,' she said as she danced to Daddy Cool and One Way Ticket. Long-time customer Mr Tam, 56, said the atmosphere and decorations had not changed. 'Look at the sea view here. Where can you find a better floor to dance on than this? 'I have been making friends and enjoying myself in this place since its opening in 1979,' he said. The restaurant had been struggling of late to fill a third of its seats. Assistant manager Suen Wai-ching, 36, said: 'They can take away my job with this closure but they can't take away my experience, my friendship with staff and my relationship with customers.'
