We are still celebrating Chinese New Year in Singapore. We attended a Chinese New Year dinner that adviser to Mountbatten Grassroots Organisations Mr Lim Biow Chuan hosted, to thank his grassroot leaders and their spouses. All the grassroot leaders are volunteers and they have put in much hard work during the year,
Tossing for good fortune
Before dinner, there was a tossing of yu sheng (a colourful Chinese-style raw fish salad which is popular in Singapore). It is my favourite dish during Chinese New Year. Every ingredient in this dish is auspicious, I just love the taste of them mixed together.
Singapore is a multi-racial society, we have friends of different races joining us in our Chinese New Year celebrations. They had fun tossing yu sheng too.
The organisers lined up several interesting and entertaining performances for the guests. 'God of Fortune' dropped in and performed a Gangnam-style dance. LOL
At the end of the dinner, each of us received a good luck gold packet. I am slightly disappointed that the two miniscule coins were not real gold coins but chocolates. Hope that I would have Good Luck and strike lottery with the 4 lucky digits. :D
