Everywhere up here is like "People Mountain People Sea - Yan San Yan Hoi literary in Cantonese meaning lots of people . Its the same every year during CNY 6,000 feet above sea level. From what I know, its the weather down there. Humid and Warm, or as Malaysian would say - Its so hot lar.
Following up my earlier post about Yu Sheng, this is how you serve Yu Sheng.
I arrange for a take home Yee Sang and ate it with my wife. This is how the box of Yee Sang looks like from the inside.
To serve, first squeeze some lime juice unto the fish slices. Mixed Well. Then Sprinkle the five spice powder and white pepper all over the rest of the ingredient. Place the fish slices ( I got 2 types here - Salmon and Grass Carp ) in the middle - on top of the chiffonade carrot and radish.
Follow by the dough fritters - just dump them all over the ingredient.
Yee Sang Salad ready to be toss . Dont forget to say auspiciuos wishes during the tossing.
Normally people would say something like
" Wang Choy Chau Sau" - Prosperity withing grasp
" San Thai Kin Hong" - Best of Health
"Pou Pou Kou Seng" - Best of luck in your career advancement
There a lot more of them and I dont really know that much. I am what the Malaysian and Singaporean called the Banana - yellow on the outside and inner white . Its a slang for Chinese who dont speak, write or read Chinese. I do speak Chinese - Mandarin, Cantonese, Hokkien. Understanding - Hakka, TeoChew. Reading very basic Chinese. So, am I Banana or Babana ??
