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!
