My Chinese New Year Eve Dishes

SMALL AFFAIR .... This Chinese New Year Eve is a very different one from my 6 decades, different not in terms of food but in terms of company.

A small scale this year, only three of us and I just did one dish... Soup!  The rest of the dishes were "contributed" from my neighbour and my sister-in-law.  I did not go over this year, she has four eating in her house which is a rare sight, all along there are more than ten each year.

Anyway, keep safe and still be happy, that is all that counts!!

For lunch we had these dishes... 
Bak Kut Teh given by my neighbour.... 
Ju Hu Char given by my neighbour too....
So nice of them!
Our CNY Eve lunch.... 
Then around 4.30pm these came...
I ordered from a friend's friend....
This Poon Choy it is called...
It cost RM238...
They gave the pot too....
I just have to heat the gravy and pour over these ingredients....
And then warm it up over the stove for awhile....
Meanwhile, my sister-in-law brought over these for me...
Black fungus with pork belly....
And our dinner for three....with the remaining soup....
We finished the dishes except for the Poon Choy...
There's one third left and I will do something with it one of these days!
LOL.... 
How about your CNY Eve this year?
Any Special Reunion?

  2. You are so lucky to be blessed with so many dishes! I did not have a reunion dinner as I prefer to stay home and stay safe. Hopefully next year's CNY will be back to normal. Let me now wish you Gong Xi Fa Cai!

  5. Ah, at least you have some sort of reunion dinner with a total of 3 pax including yourself. All food looks good. The poon choy gives the pot as well, so convenient!
