yee sang waiting to be tossed
I must admit in the midst of rushing to meet deadlines, I have kinda forgot about the upcoming festivities. It's been so bad this year, I've only had one lou sang session that was frankly very dismal (I pegged it as the worst ever I have eaten in my lifetime!). Hopefully with the festivities starting on Sunday, it will mean I can rectify that poor number of lou sang sessions.
raw fish, ingredients for that festive dish
One of the places I am set to enjoy yee sang is Sek Yuen - that venerable institution where time seems to stand still from the 1960s. Even their yee sang feels very old styled - platform bowls for the ingredients and an even older man dishing out the ingredients in the right proportions on a large platter. My mouth is salivating at the thought of such deliciousness! Definitely can't wait for that session.

In the meantime, while I go forth to fulfil my resolutions to enjoy the festivities, I want to wish all of you, "Gong Xi Fa Cai! May the Year of Tiger bring you roaring success, loads of great food and good luck! Enjoy yourself during the long break!" (More Sek Yuen pictures are available in the Flickr set.)
