Fat Choy
Happy Lunar New Year 4710!  It's the year of the dragon.  In Cantonese they say gong hay fat choy wishing people happiness  and prosperity.  Pictured above is a moss called fat choy and sounds the same as the words fat choy in gong hay fat choy --  it's traditional to include this in meals at New Years.  

Increasingly expensive, less and less is being used.  Sold dried, it is re-hydrated before using.  This small amount is floating in a bowl of water.
