Lou Sang For Chinese New Year

For "hoi leen", that is the 2nd day of Chinese New Year, the dish Lou Sang is sort of a MUST... the dish means... prosperity and being alive... haha... (I hope I got the meaning right)

My sister in law sponsored this dish, imported from Kuala Lumpur.... it consists of mainly raw vegetables such as white carrots, orange carrots, ginger, pomelo, raw fish (true), crackers, peanuts .... (what else.. I cannot remember) but there were lots of stuff inside....

Before the syrup...

toppings with sweet syrup...

forking out together...
stirred high high

hmm....ready to be eaten at last....

(By the way, Michelle, can you guess whose hands belong to who? hehe...)


  1. looks delicious!

    i loved the food in KL. every place we went to had great food. chinese, japanese, italian, local, you name it :-)

  2. fork? what happened to the traditional chopsticks? :)

  3. wow nice food it makes me hungry :LOL:

  4. eh how come this yee sang use fork one ahhh. i tot lo hei is using chopsticks and the higher the better...

    there was a year when i work almost everyday we had lo hei with so many groups of colleagues...i eat them but i avoid the raw fish..heheheh love those that uses pomelo ones...yum

  5. Hi Claire, in SG this is called "Yu Sang" or raw fish. Meaning to have plenty extra (Yu, sounds like extra). Many also call it "low hei", or toss it high. the higher you toss the better it is. This dish is served throughout CNY, and even before it. However, a consider a must on the 7th day, everyone's birthday. Or "Ren Ri", or people's day.

  6. Hi Claire!

    That Lou Sang looks interestingly yummy!

    I hope you have now gathered enough energy to face the daily tasks.


  7. Wa, your "lo sang" was complemented with so many side dishes one ka?

    Ya clare,"lo sang" must use chopstick one la,, "suang suang dui dui" "ho yee tau " ma

    and Happy Ren Ri my dear friend

  8. haha..thanks for your comments.. yeah, should be chopsticks one.. but during that time, all forks and spoons on the table only.. so never the mind, we all use forks.. we just did for the fun of it.. never really indulge in the meaning..
    yes, today is the people's birthday, my mum is cooking porridge..

Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner At San Jose 2022

TABLE FOR FOUR... We had our own reunion Chinese New Year dinner on Monday evening.... we made a simple one, just hot pot at home.  All we have to do is to clean the vegetables, get everything defrosted... and the hot pot boiling with a packet of seasoning.  They sell a lot of hot pot seasoning over here, from tomato soup to shrimp and chicken soup, I just threw in the whole packet of paste.  No doubt not so healthy but it is so easily done....  As usual, Chinese New Year won't be CNY without a plate of Loe Sang...  No crackers so I put in a few pieces of Tacos... LOL... Most important is the sauce....  The apricot, plum sauce and honey makes it right.... And our dishes for the evening..... We ate too much shrimps the day before so we omitted for this evening.... Simple and yet satisfying meal for our Reunion Dinner....

Cookies For Chinese New Year 2022 In San Jose

MISSING IN BLOGGING AGAIN.... this has become a norm now ever since I arrived to this continental... LOL... Now I understand the word of Full Commitment when it comes to taking care of baby... seriously, I have to be fully commited and occupied by this little cheeky fella who is now going to be his 10th month soon.  Wow... time flies, when I first came, he was just slightly over four months... that being said, it is soon time fo rme to pack my bags and leave.  LOL... My 6 months being a babysitter is soon over... and did I say I can hardly wait?  NO, NO... I love my job here and I am going to miss my baby tremendously!  I only don't miss his cries!  LOL...  OK, by the time I write this post, Chinese New Year is over, it is now the 4th day of CNY.  Two days before the Lunar New Year, my daughter-in-law and I cooperated fully and baked a few types of cookies.  Looking back at these pictures, I dare say that we did a good job... not on the cookies but at least we had a great time bond

Buffet Lunch At Baccanal Caesar Palace Hotel, Las Vegas

BUFFET LUNCH... We made reservation for a nice buffet a week before we came to Las Vegas, the buffet is one of its kind in Caesar Palace, Baccanal is the name of the restaurant.  My kids were saying that we must have at least one good and memorable meal while here in Las Vegas and they chose the seafood buffet.  It cost around $90 per pax and being Asians, sure we would be attracted to just seafood!  Alaska Crabs... hairy crabs....lobster claws..  clams etc etc...  Oh, I did not take much photos on what we ate, just too busy stuffing in and to take out the camera with dirty hands and all.  LOL.... Just the initial stage and after that, it was all about eating and eating... oh, by the way, they only allowed 90 minutes in the restaurant, but I don't think they timed anyone... LOL.. Anyway, we took that amount of time to finish our food, sipping free champayne and mocktail too.  What a scrumptious meal... from mains to desserts, I think we only had one meal done for that day itself...
