Enter the Dragon

Chinese New Year celebration at WaiLeng's

A gorgeous day to start the Chinese Lunar calender....

Tossing of Yee Sang (Fish Salad with Plum  Sauce)
- to usher in good luck and prosperity to the upcoming year.

When Yee Sang is eaten, the ritual is to toss the mixed ingredients high in the air with a shout of "Loh Hey" which literally means to ‘move upwards’. 
It is symbolic of the wish for our fortunes to rise and expand during the forthcoming year.
