Some local colour to celebrate – blossoms and peonies, together with some eucalyptus leaves from home. According to the guy who made this up, they are known as “lucky money leaves”
The quilt group enjoyed a CNY lunch, complete with “Yu Sheng” the seafood & salad dish, peculiar to Singapore, which must be tossed high in the air by everyone to usher in a long year of prosperity!
The waiter mixes each ingredient separately, which are all specific meanings and wishes for the coming year. My wish was for more members for our quilt group!
