Chinese Lunar New Year

The Chinese Lunar New Year is the time of the year when all generations gather together and send their blessings verbally such as “恭喜发财” 、”身体健康”、”生意新龙”、”学业进步” etc. Red packets are also given, amount varies depending on how close you are to that person.

Of course we cannot miss out on the sumptuous food spread. For my family’s tradition, we’ll always visit my 4th Grandaunt & family on the 2nd day of LNY. In turn, they always prepare a wide array of lunch spread. Below are the food spread which will make one drool just by looking:

1. Lychee Duck

After such a fulfilling lunch, next up will be a simple dinner since I am just too exhausted to cook after all the visiting.

1. 板面 Bian Mian

I have a very traditional baby who love the chinese ramen. Broth is normally created with pork bones boiled for hours. Added with vege, eggs and ikan
bilis (small fish).

2. Salted Egg Crab

This is the dry version of the salted egg crab whereby they deep-fry the crab till crisp before adding in crushed salted egg and chilli padi till the crab is well coated with the salted egg.

3. Sweet and Sour Pork

One of my favourite dish whereby they deep-dry the pork cubes till crisp and brown before adding in the sweet and sour sauce with capsicum, cucumber, onions and pineapple.

That’s all for today. Will update more LNY flavors soon. Hereby, wishing everyone a LNY fill with endless blessings and fortunes!
