Food Glutton

Chinese New Year is just a few days away. For the past one month, I have been busy running up and down like a mother hen! LOL... As a mother to three grown up kids, I have to start preparing my menu, what to cook for them, what to buy, what to bake.. Okay, I am exaggerating here a bit, I do not cook nor bake much, just a few dishes and bake some simple cookies, nothing to shout about much here.  But just by looking at the dishes below, they were prepared by my In-Laws, I really have to pay "tribute" to them.  As a daughter-in-law, I just have to go back and savour all the glorious food!!  How blessed I am, right?
Yes, my In-Laws are really great chefs!
That is why I love to do the "Washing-up!" after the glorious meal!
Loe Sang as the Appetizer and the Starter before the meal.. 

After the reunion meal, the desserts are next!  My sister-in-law loves baking cakes and each year she will prepare a few choices of cakes for us to savour!  Blueberry cheese cakes, carrot cakes, lemon cheesecake... and what else... hmmmmm....
Isn't she amazing!!
Now you know why I always look forward to Chinese New Year! LOL... 

However, after all being said and eaten, I need to be cautious about my own health from now on.  I am now getting younger, my metabolism is getting slower and if I eat too much and too fast, I might get indigestion or discomfort.  Well, prevention is better than cure so I better watch how much I eat this coming celebration.  By the way, I am keeping some Gaviscon in the house, well, you know, just in case... for heartburn and indigestion, it helps to relieve.... I wouldn't want to miss out all the glorious food, right?

Oh another thing,  I am going to get a new set of speakers for my desktop computer.  I am going to save on Presonus and I think Andy will have to agree with me too.  He is as excited as I am!
