CNY Day 2

I prepared noodles for breakfast before we adjourned to Taiping for our reunion lunch with my mum and siblings.
simple dried pork noodles

ang pow ready in my LV handbag

before we departed, lighted the fire crackers 

t
my girl was so excited

met both my sisters at the restaurant

my mum and brother were there too

the first dish: lou sang

main dish: poon choi


Poon Choi also known as pun choi or Big Bowl Feast, is a traditional type of dish originating from Hong Kong village Cantonese cuisine. It may also be found in different parts of Hong Kong. It is served in wooden, porcelain or metal basins.

  3. I'd rather use the money on buying additional foods than
    buying such harmful items
    I've seen a lot of anti firecracker ads and it was so disgusting

  4. but on the second thought using firecracker isn't
    a bad Idea after all, I mean it was meant to
    drive bad luck away right?

  9. I remember when I was young, the restaurants seldom prepare poon choy as their dish. Now almost every restaurants offering CNY meals have poon choy in their menu. I wonder what make poon choy so popular now.

    5. the poon choy looks loaded, but i don't really fancy that.. i prefer to have all those things cooked and eaten separately than having them all mixed into one bowl, they all taste like the same thing this way..
