What you'll do

Learn how to create your own Yee Sang! Toss your luck to higher places with a colourful homemade Yee Sang, hosted and taught by mother and daughter duo Shentel & Betty Lee. 15 guests will get to hear first hand how to create a personalised Yee Sang using fresh ingredients, as well as ‘cheat ingredients’ that you may already have in your fridge or pantry.

This no fuss Online Experience will bring you through the history of the Yee Sang and why it’s so important to Malaysian and Singaporean families during the Lunar New Year, and how we have adapted this tradition to make it our own. We will interact and encourage participants to share their stories, and ask them personally what they love most about Chinese New Year and try to help them incorporate their food loves into their Yee Sang. We will also share chopping techniques and well as plating tips on how to create a visually exciting dish.

Please note the experience will be at 10.30am Malaysian Time or 1.30pm Sydney Time.

Hi I’m Shentel, the co-founder of accessory labels Bowerhaus and Sereni & Shentel! The Yee Sang holds much tradition and culture in my family. The act of tossing it and all the warm wishes and blessings we think while doing it, give us so much hope and love in these dark times. I will be sharing the traditions passed down from my own mother in this Online Experience, and I hope her being a part of this session will make the whole experience unique.

This was such a fun experience. Shentel and Aunty Betty were so friendly and their stories and comments made it very enjoyable and loved learning how to arrange the yee sang in a rainbow pattern. Happy to have attended and supported the Kuching Food Aid cause. As Aunty Betty says, "Happy life, Blue Skies, Easy Peasy, Thinly Sliced!" :)
