Entry: Everybody's Birthday (人日) Wednesday, February 13, 2008



Today is the birthday for every single human soul on earth.
It's called Ren Ri (人日).
This is the day celebrated by all Chinese around the world.
Seventh day of the Lunar Month. Ren Ri (人日)

Traditionally, this is the day to feast on Seven Varieties of Vegetables
To symbolise a prosperous and abundance year ahead.
However, in Singapore the tradition had been shifted to a more commercial scene.
On this very day, people will feast on Yusheng (鱼生) with various other dishes.
鱼生 is a symbolic term for the business minded people with the intention to prosper.
By tossing the seven or more types of vegetables with slices of raw fish.
The higher it's tossed the better and luckier in the coming years ahead.
Hence, it has become a norm now in Singapore to have 鱼生 every Lunar New Year.
