Tossing Yee Sang (2)

Tossing Yue Sang (1) - It's all about tossing yue sang and there are 6 steps which are the norm to be followed..

On the first day of the new year, my sister called me that she had booked two tables for tossing yue sang. I agreed to that and she suggested that we tossed the yee sang according to the six steps. I answered, "Why not?"

So on the second day, we went to Flemington Hotel for our lunch. We were required to pour those ingredients on our own. So both my sister and I took charge..

Here's the yee sang..

First I arranged the salmon and pressed the lime onto it..

Then, I poured the pepper/5-spices powder onto it..

Finally, I poured the plum sauce onto it..

The yee sang was ready to be tossed..

Chanted 8 auspicious phrases..

Last but not least, everyone said, "Kong Hei Fatt Choy!"

Nicely tossed and we finished it in no time..


Gong Xi Fa Cai!


  1. We do not really go into this tradition here - probably Cantonese...though we do find people doing that here and there sometimes. Not my favourite either...

  2. Loh ahhhhhhhhh loh ahhhhhhhhhh..pol pol koe seng, fatt tai choy - (Canto).

  3. Lou sang for good health and prosperity!! :)

  4. Good health & prosperity!
