I meant to post this earlier but since today is Chap Goh Mei, also known as the last day of Chinese New Year, I am still in time ūüôā

 

Sorry, the picture is not that good as I took this using my iPhone. Anyway, we bought this Yee Sang at Sushi King. Love the mix of colours.

For those who are unaware, Yee Sang consists of a mixture of ingredients which may vary according to those who make it. Here, you can see raw fish (salmon, in this case), shredded daikon, carrots, cucumber, jelly fish, sliced tamago chopped peanuts, cut crab sticks and lime.

How you eat this : Yee Sang is known as the Prosperity Toss to the Chinese. All diners at the table¬†will stand up and on cue, proceed to toss the shredded ingredients into the air with chopsticks while saying various “auspicious wishes” out loud. The Chinese believe that¬†the height of the toss reflects the height of the diner’s growth in fortunes. It’s a good fun way to make a mess too. LOL.

With that, I wish all of you who are celebrating a HAPPY CHAP GOH MEI.
