Fun Tradition

This past week in Singapore the folks in Small World Group Incubator in Singapore held our Yusheng or Lo Hei or Prosperity Toss.

Chiet Ping, one of our key partners here helped prepare it.  Here is a photo of her nearing the end of this preparation.

Chiet Ping Salad Prep


The salad contains carrots, radishes, raw fish, peanuts, black sesame seeds and so much more that I cannot remember them all.  Here is what it looks like from the top.

Horse Character


Chiet Ping placed the carrots and then the black sesame seeds in a pattern for the year of the horse using the old form of Chinese character, here is what that looks like in full caligraphy.

year of Horse character

Of course I had to look this up, so when I did, I was really impressed with how well it came out.  After all of the preparations you use very long chopsticks and group around the table and toss the salad into the air saying things like good fortune, our in our case profitable exits and such for a few minutes … here is what that looks like.





Salad is eventually flying everywhere.  And then you eat it down and it is very tasty.

And now you are participating with us vicariously through this posting.  yeah!
