yee sang day..

Whenever there's a birthday, there'll be a birthday cake. What about Humanity Day or the day known widely as yan yat among the Chinese? We don't buy cakes to celebrate this special occasion.

This is what we had.


Yee Sang

The whole dish is made up of many, many ingredients like carrots, cucumbers, parsley leaves, jellyfish, sour plum sauce and some others that I don't know of. It's eaten RAW. That is why it's called 'sang' in Cantonese.

If the yee sang is supposed to be eaten after it's cooked, it'll then be call yee suk instead. 'suk' means cooked in English.

WARNING: Below is a picture of me being gluttony. I love to eat so, so much.


Okay, you can stop laughing now.
