What’s Chinese New Year celebrations without the perennial ‘Lou Sang’, the tossing of ‘Yee Sang’, a vibrant platter of salmon, condiments and sweet sauce. The dish, of Malaysian origin, is a symbol of a year of good luck. I joined Symantec Malaysia for a special luncheon at Spring Garden Tropicana Restaurant, Tropicana Golf and Country Resort, together with close to 150 Symantec business partners and members of the media.

Symantec Malaysia today celebrated the coming Chinese New Year with business partners and members of the media over a sumptuous luncheon. Held at the Spring Garden Tropicana Restaurant, Tropicana Golf and Country Resort, close to 150 Symantec business partners and members of the media attended the luncheon to celebrate the Year of the Dragon.

As it is customary in the Chinese culture, the lunch started with the auspicious yee sang, an appetizer comprising fish, crackers, and sauce.

Symantec’s guests participated in the act of Lou Sang which involves tossing the shredded ingredients while saying various auspicious wishes.
