The celebration itself is fun-filled and very bonding as everybody gets in on it! Everyone gather around the table each holding a pair of chopsticks. In the most joyous mood, everyone takes turn to offer their auspicious greetings (refer to Yusheng in Wikipedia read “Ingredients and their symbolism for greetings associated with ingredients) while adding on their own colorful ingredients. Then in unity, everyone use your own chopsticks to toss the yummy salad as high as possible while calling out louding "HUAT AH! meaning to PROSPER an dcontinue using all your newly acquire lucky phrases/greetings during the ToSS! The higher you toss, the more your good fortune will soar to new heights! We get to play with food and eat it by learning a Lunar New Year tradition, enjoy the good camaraderie and toss for your own good prosperity for the Year of the Dog! Again, remember to ChOOSE, PREPARE and BRING YOUR READY-CUT INGREDIENTs (shredded as thin and long as possible to signify longevity) OR CONDIMENT and REMEMBER YOUR ASSOCIATED CHINESE (see above link to say the lucky phrases/greeting) for your Prosperity Toss when you come! ;) B. Hot pot (or East Asian Steamboat) from 6p - 8p Hotpot is a simmering pot of soup broth at the dining table where ingredients are placed into the pot, cooked the way you like and usually eaten with a dipping sauce. Typical hot pot dishes include thinly sliced meat, seafood, variety of meatballs, dumplings, wonton, mushrooms, tofu, vegetables etc. I will have 3 different broths ready – Original, Hot and Spicy Tomyum and Vegetarian. Since it’s the Lunar New Year, I’LL TREAT EVERYONE TO THE HOTPOT which will be from 6p-8p! You can learn to play Mahjong while we clear the table and prepare the setting for our Prosperity Toss!
