As a chinese family in Singapore, the yearly Lunar New Year is quite an important celebration for my family.
Every year, there will be exchanges of Gifts and Red Packets between families and loads of people visiting on home.
Which is the reason why These are prepared.
Since we were pretty busy with the preparations, dinner were takeouts.
The family altar was also cleaned and dusted.
Even Nanoha came to help ~
New year ornaments were put up to keep up with the festive mood.
Usually, we will also go out for visiting where we bring Mandarin Oranges for exchange as a sign of good luck and blessing.
And feast on Icecream?
Lo Hei is also known as “Yu Shen” or //rips from Wikipedia.
Yusheng, yee sang or yuu sahng (Chinese: 鱼生; pinyin: yúshēng; Pe̍h-ōe-jī: hî-seⁿ or hû-siⁿ), or Prosperity Toss, also known as lo hei (Cantonese for 撈起 or 捞起) is a Teochew-stylerawfishsalad. It usually consists of strips of raw fish (most commonly salmon), mixed with shredded vegetables and a variety of sauces and condiments, among other ingredients. Yusheng literally means “raw fish” but since “fish (鱼)” is commonly conflated with its homophone “abundance (余)”, Yúshēng (鱼生) is interpreted as a homophone for Yúshēng (余升) meaning an increase in abundance. Therefore, yusheng is considered a symbol of abundance, prosperity and vigor.
Well, thats a gist of what i do during Chinese new year!
