It’s Monday and I’ve been reading comics


It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? is a place to meet up and share what you have been, are and about to be reading over the week. This meme started with J Kaye’s Blog   and then was taken up by Sheila from Book Journey. Sheila then passed it on to Kathryn at the Book Date


My mum is visiting from Singapore and brought lots of Chinese New Year goodies with her! Hooray!

 She even brought along a package of ingredients for lohei, a kind of salad that is eaten during the new year for good luck. And we invited some friends over for a new year celebration dinner. 

Yusheng is a new year tradition found only Singapore and Malaysia. At least it seems that way. Our friend from Hong Kong didn’t know about it, and you don’t really find it in Chinese restaurants here in the Bay Area, many of which are Cantonese style restaurants. 

The package comes with some pickled vegetables, crackers and sauces. We shredded carrots and radish  and pomelo and added some smoked salmon. Usually sashimi salmon is used but we didn’t have any. As a kid I used to detest yusheng, except for the crackers  but as an adult I just adore its sweet-salty-sour-bitter combination. 


The kids loved the tossing part but none of them ate it!
