JUST WHAT SHOULD YOU SAY DURING LO HEI OR TOSSING YU SHENG

By

Hi there

One of my favourite part during Chinese New Year is tossing Yu Sheng or Lo Hei. Every year without fail my family will definitely prepare food for the reunion dinner and the Yu sheng is a main stay during this festive feast. I truly have a soft spot in it and I even read last year that even people and restaurant in Hong Kong are catching up with this idea and is doing the same way like us in Singapore.

I personally think this tradition of tossing yu sheng is a must at every Chinese New Year, it is a way if getting together everyone to bring in the good festive spirits, and of course the sweetness, tanginess and savouriness of each and every ingredient always makes me come back for more!

However in the past years, I only know that we need to say auspicious wishes while tossing but after years in Singapore I have yet to learn the correct way of doing it so this year I am going to redeem myself and do it right, hopefully my son can learn from me correctly too 🙂

So I did some research on tossing Yu sheng and want to share with you just how and what to say when you Toss Yu sheng or Lo Hei during Chinese New Year.

The Yu Sheng which you get from restaurants or eateries usually are placed nicely on the take away container, all you need to do is to sprinkle and drizzle in the condiments, so now is the steps to getting it right. 🙂

************************************************************************************************************

Step 1 Say “Gong Xi Fa Cai” (恭喜发财) & “Wan Shi Ru Yi” (万事如意) when you place shredded carrots & radish on the plate or place the yu sheng on the table

Step 2 Say “Da Ji Da Li” (大吉大利) & “Ku Jin Jin Lai”(苦尽甘来) when you squeeze in lime or lemon over the fish yu sheng

Step 3 Say “Nian Nian You Yu” (年年有余) when you place the fish yu sheng on the shredded carrots & radish.

Step 4 – Say “Hong Yun Dang Tou” (鸿运当头) when you sprinkle the red pickled ginger slices

Step 5 Say “Jin Sha Man Tang” (金沙满堂) when you sprinkle in the chopped peanuts & toasted sesame seeds

Step 5 Say “zhao cai jin bao” (招财进宝) when you sprinkle pepper all over the dish

Step 6 Say “Wu Fu Lin Men” (五福临门) when you sprinkle the cinnamon powder & five spice powder

Step 7 Say “Fu Yun Nian Nian” (富运年年) & “Rong Hua Fu Gui” (荣华富贵) when you drizzle in the peanut oil

Step 8 – Say “Tian Tian Mi Mi” (甜甜蜜蜜) when you drizzle in the plum sauce or kumquat paste or sprinkle in some pickled melon

Step 9 – Say “Man Di Huang Jin” (满地黄金) when you toss in the Pok Chui fried crackers

Step 10 Say “Bu Bu Gao Sheng” (步步高升),”Feng Sheng Shui Qi” (风生水起), “Zheng Ti Jian Kang” (身体健康) while you toss your Chinese New Year Yu Sheng!

************************************************************************************************************

Biggest dose of auspiciousness is definitely to be in good spirits while you toss it to draw in all the good lucks.

All these will sure bring you abundance of good fortune, prosperity, wealth and of course impress all your relatives and friends with this new found skills. 🙂

Happy Lunar New Year!
