Year of the Tiger, Let's Eat!

I’ve been really good this year! I can easily count the number of pineapple tarts that I chowed down, but didn’t have much of my favourite “white, powdery cookie” (this is how I name Kueh Bangkit since young) because it is no longer baked by my old neighbour auntie.

Unfortunately, 4 out of 5 of us in the family was unwell to varying sickness throughout the holidays. Mum was down with fever on day 1 and I cooked porridge dinner for the family – this is the first time :)

So the most memorable part of Chinese New Year was on the continuous losing end to my sister in Mahjong and reunion dinner at Grandma’s. As life progresses on, I find that I cherish such family get-togethers more, recognizing the fact that with every passing year the group gets smaller and more relatives choose to opt out of celebrating the season together.

All that said; now let’s allow the pictures speak for its own.
