团圆饭

The lunar new year is always a hoot in my household.

Since I was young, celebrating CNY has always been a fun and massive event. My aunts would always decorate the big old house with pots of flowers and festive decor. Then everyone would get dressed up in their new year finery for the first day or 初一, as we call it.

It has somehow tamed a lil since that time but yet I still like to keep the traditions alive.

First up, was the reunion dinner at my parents. Dad cooked up a storm. We had steamboat, prawns, leeks and a giant pot of cheng tng boiled by mum. It's the fun of stirring the yusheng and sitting around the table just talking about nothing.



We stuffed our faces silly with food before the kids went out to play with sparklers.



Then it was time to go home to pack hong baos for the following day!!
