Watching your wallet? Fret not, there are many AWESOME deals up for grab with FairPrice Housebrand products which are affordable and delectable. I’m so glad to come home with so many of my favourite CNY goodies some of which are Harvest Prosperity Yu Sheng, Casahana Pineapple Roll, Sing Long Love Letters, FairPrice Fruits & Nuts Set, FairPrice Gold Cuttlefish Ball and FairPrice Shrimp Wantons! They were all my family’s favourite CNY must-have!
Harvest Prosperity YuSheng is a convenient staple for every family celebrating Chinese New Year. Not forgetting the most important part of Lunar New Year is the Prosperity Toss also known as “Lo Hei” is a Teochew-style raw fish salad which usually consists of strips of raw, shredded vegetables and a variety of sauces and condiments, among other ingredients. Therefore, yusheng is considered a symbol of abundance, prosperity and vigor. Today, Lo Hei is a common practice during Chinese New Year in Malaysia, Singapore and Indonesia. Let’s all HUAT!
Did I mentioned that my dad is a big fan for Love Letters?! He can eat at least 20 egg roll in one sitting! A perfect light snack before the annual family dinner every time! This premium quality egg roll from Sing Long is so crispy, delicious and suitable for both the young and old!
FairPrice Gold Cuttlefish Ball are made of high-quality ingredients and flavourful. Best suited for our Lunar New Year family reunion dinner! It’s so versatile you can make a quick snack, add them to soups or to be used creatively with noodles or rice! Retailing at $8.65 only!
What’s steamboat without shrimp wonton? FairPrice Shrimp Wonton completes every steamboat meal and moreover, it’s so healthy! Feast without guilt! Retails at $4.05 for a box of 12 – enough for a few satisfying bowls.
You may have seen this in my previous post but have you wonder why steamboat is an ideal meal for CNY?
First, it is so easy to prepare! Hence anyone can host a fail-proof, yummy meal.
- A steamboat can serve a few people (e.g. 2) or as many people (like 20) as you like simply by adjusting the quantity of ingredients.
- You can do steamboat again over the next 1-2 days with the leftovers, especially useful when many eating places, markets and shops are closed during the first few days of CNY.
- You get to sit around the table for a long time as you cook your own food, hence promoting interaction and bonding.
- It’s a healthy meal, as you are enjoying the food which has been briefly cooked in hot broth. The food is not greasy at all. My main point! 🙂

Besides the married giving red packets, most of us enjoy buying festive goods like canned abalones and goodies for my family relatives! Therefore the Prosperity Gift Set seems to be an ideal option as it includes New Zealand Superior Abalone, Australian Premium Wild Abalone and Pacific Clams! They are so easy to prepare and you may even add them in your YuSheng or steamboats! I’m sure they will be spoilt for choice! Retailing at $99.80 only!
