Apparently, Lohei is not really practiced in China and was made up within SG?
I also liked how my Vietnamese colleague asked a valid question. Why do we sometimes say ‘yu sheng, yet sometimes say ‘lohei’?
Yu sheng actually refers to raw fish (AKA sashimi) and refers to the fish salad we eat. Yu sheng is available all year round at some places such us Alexandra Food Centre and Jurong West Market where you can have it with porridge/congee.
Lohei refers to the act of tossing the salad and yelling out well wishes at the same time. It’s usually done in a group setting and is only done during Chinese New Year.
I thought I wouldn’t have it that many times this year but turns out I had it SEVEN times.

Can anything ever separate us from Christ’s love? Does it mean he no longer loves us if we have trouble or calamity, or are persecuted, or hungry, or destitute, or in danger, or threatened with death? (As the Scriptures say, “For your sake we are killed every day; we are being slaughtered like sheep.” ) No, despite all these things, overwhelming victory is ours through Christ, who loved us.
And I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from God’s love. Neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither our fears for today nor our worries about tomorrow—not even the powers of hell can separate us from God’s love.
No power in the sky above or in the earth below—indeed, nothing in all creation will ever be able to separate us from the love of God that is revealed in Christ Jesus our Lord. (Romans 8:35-39 NLT)
