Ushering In Second Day Of Chinese New Year 2018

Second Day of Chinese New Year... also known as Opening of New Year...

This second day of CNY is considered a very auspicious day for the Chinese, officially ushering in the new year with lots of red crackers, making noise and of course, the glorious food on the table.  My late in-laws used to say, the more food displayed on the table as much as possible, it signifies abundant food for the whole year through.  Now they are no more here, we try to maximize what we can cook and usually ends up not as much.... we have tried our best to cook as much as we can to a certain limit. LOL...
This is half of the portion of the food compared to the time my parents-in-laws were around..
All the food were finished up in one go.. instead of leaving them overnight... 
This is from Reanaclaire's kitchen... 
Poon Choy from Singapore... 
One for the album before we ushered in the New Year!


  1. Bet somebody is so sad and missing all this...all the way in Scotland. :D

  2. we don't do this anymore. on CNY day 2 we just eat out. good that everyone can finish all the food that you all cooked on the day itself.

My Failed Project In Baking Mini Egg Cakes

FAILED THIS TIME..... I don't know why, I follow exactly the ingredients and the method written in her website but it was not successful.  Something went wrong somewhere but I don't think I want to try it again.  This recipe is called Mini Egg Cake which is supposed to be soft, airy, light sponge cake but the way I made them, they turned out hard and crusty cake.   If I try again one day, I will half the portion... cos I like to eat these traditional egg cakes.... The Ingredients...  No point putting the recipe here since I failed..  LOL...  The portions of this recipe....  It looked very promising when I put them into the oven.... Even when they were in the baking process... they look good, aren't they? LOL...  I was so happy just by looking at the mini egg cakes in the tray....  And after they were let out... my heart sank....  The minute I took them out from the tray, I knew... Hard at the top...  Tak Jadi = Failed.... Now come to t

Our Orders From Afghanistan, Spanish And Australia

My Final post on the Food Festival in the Victoria Market on Wednesday night.... The atmosphere at the market was "enhanced" by the cheerful songs and music by a group band... It was indeed a merry evening filled with music-licous folk songs in the air... . Ok, how to find four seats in this crowd.... hmmmm....... Somehow we managed to... and these were what my boys brought back to our table.... Mexican rice with oysters... or is it Spanish rice?   Both are the same, I guess... LOL....

Meat from the crocodile tail?  Is it just a name or what... I really don't know... Took a few bites of it... and I am full!! Well, these were the food we

Home Cooked Dishes

NOT MUCH HAPPENING... and lazy too.... My neighbour gave me half pumpkin and I have been keeping it for a couple of days before I finally decide what to do with it.  I cook it into small chunks and sauteed it with minced meat, okra and basil leaves.  Yes, it would be great to put in some small cilipadi but unfortunately, I did not find any in my fridge.  Steamed a bowl of rice and that was meal for dinner.... One dish meal....  Pumpkin reminds me of sweet potatoes...sweet after cooking... Another dinner meal consist of Sambal Fish, black pepper met and a hard boiled egg  I only boiled the egg, the other two dishes were "sponsored" by my neighbour... LOL...
