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..

Reunion At Museum Restaurant At Starling Mall

CLASSMATES REUNION... but not from my year.  i just tagged along with my sister who wanted my company that evening.  She was going to meet up with some of her classmates at The Starling mall.  I did not want to drive there, taking Grab is a much easier and practical choice, considering it was rush hour in the evening.  Furthermore, I am not familiar with the roads... both of us might panic on the federal highway.  LOL... 
Having someone to take us there is so stress free, we only have to pay RM20 for the ride.  :)  Our first time to Startling Mall and being made familiar by one of the bloggers, Phong Hong who used to post up her lunch meals taken from there.  We were supposed to meet up at 7pm but we reached there an hour earlier to "survey" the shops and ended up buying a "bit."  Blame it on my sister who always like to give positive comments most of the time!   The dinner was held at The Museum.... Originated from Ipoh actually and how there is a branch here in …

Getaway Weekday Trip To Cameron Highlands


It has been two years since I last made an overnight trip to Cameron Highlands.  It was an impromptu trip, we only talked about it a couple of nights and the next day, all was arranged and done.  My friend rented the apartment from her niece, for two nights, we got a good deal, each of us only paid RM50 for a two nights stay.  Of course, it was an off peak season, otherwise we could not get the good deal offer.  LOL.... My friends planned everything from A to Z, they even went marketing to buy all the food stuff needed, pre-cooked some to take up for our steamboat dinner in the evening.  The weather was very cooling and nice, we had to wear our jackets especially in the evenings and mornings. 

Started off our journey by eating something light from Ipoh cos we have planned to take something good for lunch in Tringkap.  On the way, we stopped at a place called Green View Garden for some desserts before proceeding for our lunch.  Hmmmm... desserts before main meal?
Our fir…

Gathering At Top Grade Hot Soup, Ipoh

HOT SOUP ON RAINY DAYS... Yes, nowadays it pours, almost every day and in the late afternoon.  So cooling that I do not need to switch on the air con these days.  For cooling days, it is best to drink hot soup but do not land into one, okay?  LOL.. 
A few of my classmates planned an evening out at Top Grade restaurant at Festival Walk area.  I did not know that Ipoh has a branch, my first time was taken in Penang.  The boss told us that they have a branch in Ipoh, that sounds great!  I like their soup cooked with coconut water, the sweet taste is there... but funny, I don't know it is me or the soup, I still find the one I ordered in Penang is much nicer than this Ipoh branch.  I tried two times in Ipoh, my verdict?  The soup is still better in Penang.. okay, Penang wins!  The coconut soup base looks like this.....  Consisting of chicken, pig stomach, chestnuts, corn, red dates...  It cost RM58 since I am a member.. otherwise it is RM78... Others are add-ons...  And the soup gang…
