Gong Xi Gong Xi!
This CNY found me quite unprepared. Firstly it came early... seemed like Christmas/New Year was just over! I'd also been stressed out over the kids starting school. I made peanut cookies, spring-roll crackers, seaweed crackers and sesame cookies (not disastrous but not that nice).
Luckily for CNY eve dinner, hubby got the 'poon choy/treasure pot' package from Canton-i. We loved it! The treasure pot tasted good and had decent ingredients. The set also came with yee sang, waxed-meat rice and a 'tong sui' sweet dessert. All I had to cook was my usual signature pork (3kg this year), smoked chicken, a broccoli/carrot dish for the greens and rice. I rather think we should do it this way next time too. I'm not a great cook and this is kinder to my dinner guests hehe.

Err somehow can't find any pictures of people for the night.
For CNY day 1, went to the Secret Garden as usual. I'm quite pleased with the photos as all I request is ONE nice one. :)
Hello from the Secret Garden!
That night had dinner guests again. This time hubby said he will handle everything haha. So together with the relatives on his side and our maid, they came up with abalone/mushroom/fatt choy, stir-fried greens, roast pork, steamed fish, salted chicken (from Ipoh) and leftover treasure pot. Not a bad spread actually!
This time found a picture of the people...
