We will organise our next lunch at Yum Cha Restaurant in Chinatown to celebrate the Chinese New Year 'Year of the Pig' in a Singapore traditional style - with YU SHENG or LO HEI.
The tradition of Yu Sheng or Lo Hei originated from the phrase's Cantonese meaning of 'tossing up good fortune' using raw fish salad which symbolises an 'abundance of wealth and long life'.
Hence it is believed the higher you toss the ingredients in the salad, the greater your fortune will be.
Before you get started on the Yu Sheng, you should offer sincere well-wishes such as "Gong Xi Fa Cai" meaning "Congratulations for your wealth" or "Wan Shi Ru Yi" meaning "May all your wishes be fulfilled" to everyone at the table.
Please note that for this lunch they only accept cash payment and the registration will close February 7th
