07022016 The Chnese New Year Eve Dinner

Once again, on the Eve of the New year, the Chinese from all corners of the Earth will return and gather around the Family Dinner table. The Ladies would be busy cooking for the meal while the Men will engage in some Social banter or perform other duties as required of them, while the children, being children, will be children. Wars will stop, Overtime is cancelled, shopping will reach their peak, and Chefs will go on strike.

Well, not really.

In today's modern times, and ever since my Mom was no longer with us, we just settled for a Restaurant. There are some good and bad points about this but its more towards convenience where you do not have to clean up after the meal nor slave over the stove the whole day.

The Lou Sang is a must for everyone but this time, I felt as if its not special anymore.
Maybe its because my mind was more towards getting things done during my 5 days here.

Admittedly, I am hooked to the ASUS Zenfone2's Depth of Field Camera feature

From Indonesia, there is Ayam Penyet where the chicken is flattened.
Here, we just cal it the Roast Suckling Pig and that's that. I love those spring onions...

Kristine's favourite, which is the Glutinous rice.
And so, after the dinner, like every year, we went home feeling full or fleeced, depending on the situation, and prepared ourselves for the impending Fireworks or World War III courtesy of our neighbours. Or so we thought.

The whole neighbourhood was silent except for a few muted bangs. And so, CNY for this year is very weird.
