Happy Chinese New Year / Reunion Dinner

Happy Chinese New Year everyone.. Wishing you all good health, wealth and prosperity!



Chinese New Year (CNY) is always an added excuse to gather family and friends for a eating and drinking fest. It normally starts a couple of days before CNY where friends catch up for dinner before everyone heads off home (which might be interstate or overseas) to spend the CNY with family. Watch out for my pre-CNY dinner post with the girls at Steam King.

This year we had a delicious home-cooked reunion dinner.

We started off with from left to right: scallops and fish roe, smoked duck (ordered from a restaurant in Melaka) and stuffed crab. The smoke duck was delish and I ♥ the crab and meat stuffing in the stuffed crab. Sorry for the blurry pictures!

Clockwise from top left: Mushroom, Abalone, Sea Cucumber and Vegies, Fried Rice, Steam Fish, Meat Platter of Stewed Duck, Roast Pork and Herbal Chicken

All the dishes were delish. I have to admit that I have eaten this four dishes many times that sometimes I take for granted how yummy it is... 

Thanks AA and Aunt Doris for cooking and serving up a beautiful dinner.

Celebrating the festivities : Hong Kong

The family and I spent the last days of 2011 in Hong Kong and Macau, eating up a storm! I'm surprised however that when I stepped on the weighing scale it showed the same weight. How can this be?! Until I remembered my aching calves and feet from all the walking we did on this trip. We travelled by foot, on the MTR (trains) and buses, and taxis all around HK and Macau to eat and also to shop.

Happy 2012

Hi Guys,

Happy 2012! I hope everyone had a fantastic time over the festive period.

For myself, the family and I made a trip to HK and Macau. We had a great time eating up a storm which is why it is taking me ages to write about it. There were lots of photos to edit and thoughts to be put down into words. I will leave you with a short preview of photos I had taken during this eating trip.
