Asiana brings good fortune to Parliament
Earlier this week Oriental food and drink specialist Asiana Ltd decided it was time to bring some much needed good fortune to UK MPs.
The senior management team of the Nottingham-based company spent the day handing out their own-brand, Beijing Gold Fortune Cookies at the Houses of Parliament, in a bid to help people forget about the doom and gloom that has surrounded Westminster over the past few months.
The cookies are usually broken open at the end of Chinese meals to reveal a hidden message, with the inscription traditionally thought to bring good luck to the person holding it.
"It's fair to say there's been a bit of a dark cloud over the Houses of Parliament recently," commented Sandy Lathia, UK manager for Asiana. "As fortune cookies are considered to be a symbol of luck, we thought we'd bring some along to try and lighten the mood.
"We've had a really positive reaction, so let's hope the cookies do the trick and turn things around for MPs, the Government and the economy. If nothing else, at least we've managed to make a few MPs smile!"
The Fortune Cookies are the latest addition to Asiana's Beijing Gold range, which also includes Beijing Gold Premium Beer and Beijing Gold Prawn Crackers.
