The Eve, The First And Second Day Of Chinese New Year 2016

CHINESE NEW YEAR CAME AND WENT... It is a time of celebration with my love ones again, this year is slightly different because Aaron is not with us for this festive season.  Anyway, for each gathering we went to, his name was always brought up one way or another... I guess his ear must be tingling even though he is thousands of miles away... hahahaa...

For Chinese New Year Eve dinner, this year we had our reunion with my own family and siblings...
Before we partake the food, we had a short worship of Thanksgiving....
We did not cook a lot this year...
But the food was more than enough...
A picture to comm
Our CNY Eve gathering.....
On the first day my kids and I went to my in-laws' relative side for reunion....
Endless replenishing of food... 
Second day of CNY, we had our meal at my in-laws....
I "contributed" one dish as usual... 
And I was so glad that it was all wiped out... 
hahahahaa... 
The Eve, First and Second Day of Chinese New Year comes and goes...
But the Family Bonding will continue to stay...
More Food Gathering continues....

  2. I always enjoy the family gathering during CNY. Your CNY looks very "lau juak" and there is so much good homely food.

  3. CNY is a time of family bonding and feasting. When the family is big, everything seems to be tastier and finish faster. Gong Xi Fa Cai!

Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner At San Jose 2022

TABLE FOR FOUR... We had our own reunion Chinese New Year dinner on Monday evening.... we made a simple one, just hot pot at home.  All we have to do is to clean the vegetables, get everything defrosted... and the hot pot boiling with a packet of seasoning.  They sell a lot of hot pot seasoning over here, from tomato soup to shrimp and chicken soup, I just threw in the whole packet of paste.  No doubt not so healthy but it is so easily done....  As usual, Chinese New Year won't be CNY without a plate of Loe Sang...  No crackers so I put in a few pieces of Tacos... LOL... Most important is the sauce....  The apricot, plum sauce and honey makes it right.... And our dishes for the evening..... We ate too much shrimps the day before so we omitted for this evening.... Simple and yet satisfying meal for our Reunion Dinner....

Cookies For Chinese New Year 2022 In San Jose

MISSING IN BLOGGING AGAIN.... this has become a norm now ever since I arrived to this continental... LOL... Now I understand the word of Full Commitment when it comes to taking care of baby... seriously, I have to be fully commited and occupied by this little cheeky fella who is now going to be his 10th month soon.  Wow... time flies, when I first came, he was just slightly over four months... that being said, it is soon time fo rme to pack my bags and leave.  LOL... My 6 months being a babysitter is soon over... and did I say I can hardly wait?  NO, NO... I love my job here and I am going to miss my baby tremendously!  I only don't miss his cries!  LOL...  OK, by the time I write this post, Chinese New Year is over, it is now the 4th day of CNY.  Two days before the Lunar New Year, my daughter-in-law and I cooperated fully and baked a few types of cookies.  Looking back at these pictures, I dare say that we did a good job... not on the cookies but at least we had a great time bond

Buffet Lunch At Baccanal Caesar Palace Hotel, Las Vegas

BUFFET LUNCH... We made reservation for a nice buffet a week before we came to Las Vegas, the buffet is one of its kind in Caesar Palace, Baccanal is the name of the restaurant.  My kids were saying that we must have at least one good and memorable meal while here in Las Vegas and they chose the seafood buffet.  It cost around $90 per pax and being Asians, sure we would be attracted to just seafood!  Alaska Crabs... hairy crabs....lobster claws..  clams etc etc...  Oh, I did not take much photos on what we ate, just too busy stuffing in and to take out the camera with dirty hands and all.  LOL.... Just the initial stage and after that, it was all about eating and eating... oh, by the way, they only allowed 90 minutes in the restaurant, but I don't think they timed anyone... LOL.. Anyway, we took that amount of time to finish our food, sipping free champayne and mocktail too.  What a scrumptious meal... from mains to desserts, I think we only had one meal done for that day itself...
