A Simple CNY Reunion Dinner

Our CNY reunion dinner is an important event.. each year we have our dinner at my in-law's place, even though now my parents-in-law have passed on, we still keep the tradition going cos this is the only time that everyone from all sides of the country gathers together...

Though our family members are not really big but when it comes to cooking for 14 people, it is no easy task....  I wonder how my parents' in law or my own mother managed to cope up with so many dishes all these years... Really must salute to them... 

As my parents' in law is not around anymore, I had to "chip in" something for the reunion dinner and all I could contribute is just one special dish... hahahha... the rest of the credit goes to my sister-in-law... 
She made some crab meat soup
similar to the "shark fin" taste..
mixed vegetables
steamed chicken 
braised sea cucumbers, mushrooms, oysters...
Can you guess which dish I contributed?  :)
