Get a Headstart in the Monkey Year with our Chinese New Year ‘Lo Hei’ Lunch” at the Straits Chinese Nonya Restaurant was a rowdy affair with our own private room to conduct the annual traditional auspicious fish toss (“lo hei”) on the very auspicious 8th day of the lunar new year (初八).  Linda, our feisty STEP Singapore chair, had to bang vigorously on a porcelain cup with chopsticks (as she explained just earlier, firecrackers in Singapore are illegal) to get the crowd to quieten down just a little so that we could hear the auspicious sayings ushering in the year of the Fire Monkey.  Then it was another burst of noise and excitement as everyone got into the act of tossing sky high.  Here’s wishing everyone a very happy, healthy and prosperous Year of the Monkey!
