My apologies for neglecting this blog for a long time! I've been spending a quality time with my family this Chinese New Year. Family comes 1st...to me nothing is more important than my family =). so all techs aside!
Before I start blogging I would like to take apportunity to wish all who's celebrating chiness new year Kong Hei Fatt Choy may this year will be a prosperous year for all of us.
This year, the Chinese New Year fell on 23 January 2012. It's time for family members to be reunited and have a fantastic meal for dinner. It has been one of the Chinese custom since centuries ago. This year, we had our reunion dinner at a restaurant. The number of meals have reduced from 10-course meal to 7-course only.
We started off with yee sang~ That’s my favourite dish. No Chinese New Year dinner in Malaysia is complete without the ubiquitous yee sang. This is probably the 2nd or 3rd time I’m having it this year.
Lou yee sang moment!
This is the fatty lil sister
Eric the youngest cousin in the family.
Shark’s Fin soup again. I used to love this but these days I think I can do without it. Interesting fact about shark’s fin soup in Malaysian restaurants. Chances are that the shark’s fin you’re being served is fake! Look at it...this is definitely FAKE! And I'm not eating shark's fin anymore!
This is all my pretty sisters~
Butter Fried Prawns
Steamed Glutinous Rice with Steam Chicken

After dinner,we went home for ang pow lucky draw. Grandma never fails to do it every year~
Semua rebut rebut gia ang pow~
Aw look at the sad face...
and the happy faces~
I got one of the biggest packet =)
Dad got the smallest packet...65 cent only that's sad~
Anyways we had a good time catching up...The food that night was really just so-so. The service was terrible and the food came in so fast...is like they are chasing us away~ I don’t think I’ll ever come back here again for reunion dinner.
How was your reunion dinner? Hope you had a great one! XO~
