Largest Yusheng Formed by a Chinese Character
I was invited to the largest yusheng lo hei organised by Punggol East Constituency Committee on Sunday. Yusheng (raw fish) is a Chinese New Year dish, served traditionally on the 7th day of Lunar New Year.
At the open field behind Rivervale Plaza, several Workers' Party members of parliament and one NCMP joined hundreds of residents and friends of Punggol East in tossing for prosperity and good health at this mega lo hei event.
WP members started preparing the ingredients for the event as early as 8 am on Sunday.

No ticket was required for this multicultural event. It was free of charge and was attended by Chinese and non-Chinese.
Everyone, especially the children, enjoyed tossing yusheng. There was lots of yusheng left. Don't worry .... the thoughtful organisers had prepared containers for participants to ta bao (takeaway) yusheng home.
Punggol East Constituency Committee has broken the Singapore Book of Records for the largest Yusheng character formed by a Chinese character, measuring 36.9 by 18 meters! Congrats!!
