A Few of My Favourite Things!

Gong Xi Fatt Cai

On the eve of Chinese New Year, families traditionally gather for a reunion dinner. This year, we invited some work friends over to have dinner with us at mum & dad's. Mum kindly cooked up a feast for us, starting with Yee Sang, which we tossed enthusiastically to help bring in prosperity and good fortune!

We also had two kinds of noodles, tender octopus, spicy wok-tossed prawns, cold chicken with peanuts (courtesy of A and Ant's Bistro), baked chicken stuffed with glutinous rice, stir-fried beef, shop-bought roast duck and chicken curry puffs:

Following a breather of good conversation, dessert was brought to the table: homemade pineapple tarts, coconut macaroons that we had brought back from Strasbourg, miniature curry puff-shaped, fried sweet that is filled with peanuts and sugar and a homemade snack that I don't know the name of - a thin batter that is either fried of baked in a mould that creates 8 holes in the centre then sprinkled with sesame seeds. Of course, there is always a fruit platter:

Best wishes for a happy and prosperous New Year!
