Prosperity Toss

During Chinese New Year many Singaporeans toss and eat yusheng or prosperity toss, a raw fish salad. This infographic explains the ritual and meaning quite well. The important bit is that everyone tosses the salad with shouts of “Lo Hei”.

The salad is made every night for around two weeks. Sometimes even a couple of times per day as it is something to do with friends and family. Having Singaporeans around in the office and as friends is actually helpful and nice, being able to live these quirky traditions. Plus the salad is very tasty.
