CNY 2016

Happy CNY, everyone!  Took a week off without internet. :)

Gong Xi Fa Cai from us!

Made some munchies... peanut cookies (note to self:  Next time buy peanuts with skin, those are more fragrant even though more work to remove skin), seaweed crackers, kuih bangkit (it was a disaster - must throw away recipe and try another in the future) and dried meat cookies.

This is what Mummy made

CNY eve dinner: Menu for 10 adults and 4 kids

1. Yee sang (purchased)
2. Steamed big pomfret with preserved olives topping
3. Salt n pepper prawns
4. Signature pork (3.5kg is a scary quantity, Next time make 2.5kg enough)
5. Soy sauce ginger duck
6. Stir-fried broccoli and carrot
7. Waxed duck
8. Lotus root soup

From top left: Huge wok of pork, salt n pepper prawns, 
soy duck and SOMEBODY naughty

SOMEBODY didn't appreciate all my hard work... ate very slowly and decided to lie down before finishing her food.

Huat ah!

More pics to come. :)
