This is the first of a series of Loh Sang sessions our family will be participating in. The Yee Sang, or Prosperity Toss is a Teochew-style raw fish salad. It usually consists of strips of raw fish (most commonly salmon), mixed with shredded vegetables and a variety of sauces and condiments, among other ingredients. It literally means "raw fish" but may also bring the meaning of an increase in abundance. Therefore, yee sang is considered a symbol of abundance, prosperity and vigour.
We had the pleasure of participating in this Loh Sang session courtesy of Vincent’s parents, Uncle Peter and Auntie Amy. So without further ado, let’s allow our pictures do the talking for us...
