Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner With Our Love Ones!

Chinese New Year Eve.... was spent in my own mum's place this year... Three reasons why I went to my mum's place for reunion dinner...

One... my parent's-in-laws are not around anymore... Bless them..
Two... my brother and family couldn't make it back this year because of some unforeseen circumstances...
Thirdly... I have not taken CNY eve dinner with my own mum for many years now...

The kids' reunited with one common goal.... guess what?
Hands' down, please!
And how our dishes...
Minced Prawn Fritters..
This is a Must.. taken with lettuce ... BEST!
Lotus soup with groundnuts...
 ahhh... This one is cooked by Yours Truly here!!
Braised mushrooms with sea cucumber
Abalone slices as toppings!
I know... it is not professional enough..
just look at the big slices of abalone..
My mum exclaimed.."Why cut into so big pieces?"
Big or Small, all walloped in no time!
Here's wishing those who celebrate...
A Merry Chinese New Year with Your Love Ones!
