Come, Let's Mix and Prosper!

My SIL prepared Loe Sang ("prosperity food") during the second day of Chinese New Year. Though she said the ingredients were very much less than the previous years, nevertheless we enjoyed "loe-ing" them with one another. It was the atmosphere that counts, right?

the homemade loe sang
without the crackers..

loe ah loe ah.. as high as possible?
chinese has a lot of beautiful myths.. lol..

  2. It's the celebrating with family that is important.. The food is secondary--although that looks good!!!!! Happy Chinese New Year!!

    Have a great week.
