Happy Birthday Everyone!

The 7th Day of the Lunar New Year marks Ren Ri otherwise known as Everyone's Birthday. It is believed that when Goddness Nuwa created the Earth, she created mankind on the 7th Day, and thus, it has become a common practice to celebrate this day with the auspicious toss of the yu sheng (raw fish salad).
Was with my family at Owen Restaurant at Turf City for dinner:
