Lunar New Year Gathering at Winnie's Place

Winnie invited us to her place for a Lunar New Year Gathering 2 weeks ago. When we arrived, Winnie showed us her collection of jewelery which she had made herself! They were all intricately done and we were amazed by her handiwork!

We all made ourselves at home as we sat down to talk while waiting for the rest to come. Winnie had many New Year goodies and we couldn't resist helping ourselves the snacks!

Once everyone arrived, we started with the "Lo Hei" aka "Yusheng"! Also known as the Prosperity Toss in english, it is a Cantonese style raw fish salad comprising of shredded vegetables, raw fish (usually Salmon), pomelo, pickled ginger, crackers, and a variety of condiments. The Chinese believe that having this dish is considered a symbol of abundance, prosperity and vigor.

After eating the "Yusheng", we had Cedele for lunch! Winnie had generously ordered a variety of sandwiches and pastries for us! She also made ice jelly for dessert!

We all had a great time and enjoyed the fellowship together. Thank you Winnie for hosting us and we look forward to our next Teddy Bear group gathering!
