CNY day 1

I boiled 'pat chan' overnight and so it was ready as soup for breakfast this morning. I cooked vermicelli for all of us. This is what my mum will usually prepare for us during the first day of CNY. So to carry on the tradition, I made the effort this morning.

A bowl of pat chan misua with a hard-boiled egg and lettuce.


As for lunch, I steamed the fish. Just added sesame oil, soya sauce, garlic and ginger.
When the fish was ready, I added the spring onions and crispy onions.

I had stewed the pork overnight too. 
Just poured the stewed pork with Japanese tofu over the 
blanched broccoli and carrots.

Butter cereal prawns



After lunch, at 3pm we went to AEON Ipoh. Just walked around and bought a pair of shoes for both my boy and my girl.

Anything that's red attracted me..


Happy Chinese New Year!

Tomorrow I will be visiting my siblings and relatives. 
Got to get ready the ang pow..

  5. Happy Chinese New Year! Very delicious dishes you cooked for CNY day 1. Since you worked so hard in your shop during the days leading to CNY, it is only right that you relax with your children and go to the mall with them.

  6. For the first day of CNY, our family tradition is to eat only vegetarian dishes for the whole day but in my case, as I have a gathering with my friends at night, I would eat a little meat during dinner with my friends.
