It was not so easy back then, so instead of having big meals, they opted for yee sang with vegetables from their very own garden. Some of the vegetables include cucumbers, carrots, leeks, and turnips!

Each ingredient in yee sang has its own symbolisation. All good things, of course! Cucumbers symbolise good returns, carrots symbolise gold and fortune, and so much more! When you are tossing yee sang, it is important to make a mess out of it. The messier, the better! The higher you toss, the better your life will be! So, are you ready? Let’s get this list started!
