The dinner started with the Toss Yusheng – a traditional Singaporeans’ dish which is known as “an increase in abundance,” or “good luck”. The dish includes fresh salmon, herbs, spices and fresh and pickled fruits and vegetables. All participants will jointly use their chopsticks to toss the mixed ingredients high in the air with a shout of “Loh Hey”, which means to ‘move upwards’, and loudly offered wishes of prosperity at the same time. It is believed the higher you toss, the more luck and prosperity will come to you.
Guests were then served with a 8-course menu served by The Reverie Hotel Saigon while also enjoying the table games with various redeemable prizes.
For the first time ever, we proudly presented the Popping Fu Lu Shou to the guests. We believe that with a young, enthusiastic dance moves, the crew definitely warmed up the show.
