Last Friday I signed up for a field trip. Not one with a gaggle of school kids, but one with sprightly seniors.
The centre I volunteer with at Boon Keng, was organizing a trip to China town.
Thin strips of carrots, cucumber, green and white radish, chopped peanuts and strips of raw fish were melded together with oil, plum sauce and crackers and tossed together with chopsticks. The higher you toss the greater your fortune for the year ahead. So we had a very enthusiastic group tossing as high as they could!
This was followed by lunch and then a trip to the Buddha Tooth Relic Temple.
