Susan Peh’s Jazz-Themed Chinese New Year Dinner Featured A Spectacular Homemade Yusheng
The fifteenth day of the Lunar New Year is a date to be celebrated with family and friends as it marks the first full moon of the Chinese calendar. For that reason, lawyers and society power couple Susan and Adrien Peh opened the doors to their home that evening to host a lo hei dinner for the Jazz Association (Singapore) (JASS), of which Susan serves as vice-chair, in the spirit of reunion and celebration.
Filled with swinging notes and lively tunes, guests, who were mostly supporters and patrons of JASS, were wildly entertained by a three-piece live jazz band in the family's living room. Eldest daughter Melissa helmed the sumptuous dessert spread, while a live Macallan bar offered two customised cocktail variations for guests to pique their fancy. But claiming the spotlight that evening was Susan's famous homemade yusheng, prepared and laid out meticulously with the help of the entire family. Shaped to resemble a rat in a nod to this year's zodiac character, the large table-sized dish brought all guests together to toss to a prosperous Lunar New Year.
