Moreover, it won’t be a real Singaporean CNY celebration without Lo Hei Yu Sheng! The Yu Sheng experience is such a unique part of our culture, this is a tradition that we will always have within our society. Everyone around the table has to stand up and use their chopsticks to mix and toss the yu sheng. With each toss, you have to shout out your wishes for the new year like ‘to get a first class’ or ‘ to win the lottery’. But at the end of the day, we had more fun tossing the food at each other than really eating it!
This year was extra special because we made our own yu sheng. The Singapore Society execs stayed up till the wee hours of the night to prepare those customised yu sheng and it was all good fun to make it while we bond over shredding carrots/ cucumber/ radish, roasting peanuts, peeling pomelo, deep-frying prawn crackers, etc.!
Once again, here's wishing everyone a HAPPY CHINESE NEW YEAR and may we stuff ourselves silly with more hot pot and dumplings, perfect for this wintery weather :D
