Yu Sheng Chines New Year Salad Tossing

Make a wish while tossing YeeSang salad...and that is exactly what we did yesterday with many friends . It was great yearly gathering in my friends home. We get to see many friends we didn't see for long time' exchange mandarin oranges and red packets, and wish each other for a good Rabbit year to come.

"While versions of it is thought to have existed in China, the contemporary version is created and popularised in Singapore in the 1960s amongst the ethnic Chinese community and its consumption has been associated with Chinese New Year festivities in Singapore as well as in neighbouring Malaysia. In Singapore, government, community and business leaders often take the lead in serving the dish as part of official functions during the festive period or in private celebrity dinners. Some have even suggested that it be named a national dish."--- wikipedia
