Tossing The Yee Sang

Hey there! It's official! Happy Chinese New Year is here! Time to celebrate the year of the water dragon!

Wadaa~ dragon.

Okay, so during the Chinese New Year I don't usually post up a comic and I will usually take a week off from drawing comics. This is because I'm sure most of you are out celebrating and I know not many of you are are gonna read this anyways for the next few days but I'll just post this up now anyways for those of you who don't celebrate the Chinese New Year and might be sitting and relaxing at home right now.

Yes. It is because I am in an extremely festive good mood. So here's a comic based on a popular Chinese New Year tradition! Za-Zahh!! (*za-zah is not a chinese tradition)

I'm sure pretty much most of you know or heard what 'yee sang' is? It's a colourful dish comprising of god-knows-what (I seriously have no idea what those colourful strands of thingies are) and salmon bits. As per tradition, everyone whips out their chopsticks and toss it around for good luck. Apparently the higher you toss the more luck you get! This is a Chinese tradition where we do this with family and friends during the Chinese New Year.

Here is how the bros toss the 'yee sang'.
Why must you always make a mess? Just why?
I guess it's one of those kiasu (scared to lose) moments where you just want to toss your 'yee sang' all the way up to the ceiling for 'supposed' massive luck.

Other than that, they could very much be just playing with food.

I'm sure many of you make a freaking mess as well when tossing the 'yee sang'. You know who you are. *eyes suspiciously*

Happy Chinese New Year everyone! Have a great holiday celebration!

"Bro, don't like that la, bro" might take a break this Thursday and we will be back next Monday! Have fun everyone!

    1. hi bella! haha glad it made u laugh! my bros are nutcases! thank you! happy cny and happy holidays to u too!

  19. lmfao, what are you expecting? they are your bros. You know that telling them to do it properly is not in their dictionary. But i'm sure, when you are not celebrating with them in the future, you'll be reminded of how crazy your bros are (and how much you miss them). Best enjoy while it lasts! hahaha

    Gong Xi Gong Xi, Xinnian Kuaile.

    1. yeah. i shud have expected them NOT to listen to me. I guess since we only toss yee sang only during chinese new year might as well just make a freaking mess!

      thanks bro! hope u had a great holiday too!
