Happy Chinese New Year’s Eve to everyone!!!
I had my first lo hei of 2013 at Azur, a buffet restaurant in Changi Airport Crowne Plaza Hotel. There’s about 20 of us at the media tasting session so chef prepared this huge snakey yu sheng with all the trimmings symbolizing auspiciousness, wealth and abundance.
Have fun tossing and making a mess tonight, and the next 15 days to come!
