Ren Ri

Happy Birthday Everyone! Yes, I am no kidding! Today is the birthday of both you and I ! Yup, in fact today is the birthday of everyone!

How time passes! Chinese New Year has just entered into its 7th day today. According to Chinese tradition, the 7th day of the first lunar month is the day of man, hence today is our birthday!

According to the ancient writings of Tung Fang So, censor to the Emperor Wudi under the Han dynasty (206 BC - 220 AD), the first eight days of the year are dedicated respectively to the rooster, dog, pig, sheep, bull, horse, man and grain.

And how can Ren Ri go without Yu Sheng? Yu Sheng is a Teochew style raw fish salad. Partakers of Yusheng will toss the Yusheng high up to signify prosperity and progress for the coming year ahead!

Definitely, I will be sharing my celebrations of Ren Ri, my birthday as well as yours later in the blog, so stay tuned!

Happy Birthday to You, once again!
