Gong Xi Fa Cai for Tiger Year 2010!
Since my birthday and Chinese New Year coincide on the same day this year, my friends decided to throw me parties a week in advance! It’s always very thoughtful of them! Thank you very much!
“Sing Long” Yee Sang from Jusco, RM19.88. If you notice, no “fish”. You have to add on yourself. Haha!
Over the lunches and dinners, we had yee sang as well. I was told that yee sang is only being eaten in Malaysia. I’ve always thought yee sang originated from Hong Kong! A quick check on the internet revealed otherwise. My friends were not totally right either. In fact, I read from the Wikipedia that, yee sang was actually eaten by fisherman in Guongzhou, to celebrate their catch on the seventh day of the Chinese New Year, also known as “Renri” – “Human Day”. Hahahaa! Direct translation sucks! This delicacy existed since the Song Dynasty! Then, in the 1960, a Singapore chef in Lai Wah restaurant formulated a new recipe for the yee sang that we enjoy today. For more info, you may click here.
Well, I think this blog has been deprived of food pictures lately, so, here are some of the stuffs that my friends cooked over the weekend. So, salivate away! Haha!
Vegetable penne pasta with sausages and garden salad
Fresh Yee Sang from Sek Yuen, 1 mai for RM40

Gong xi fa cai, fellow readers and friends! May you be blessed 10,000 folds this Chinese New Year with immaculate health, abundant love and endless prosperity!
