Chinese New Year
The family always gathered at my grandma's house on Chinese New Year's Eve for a steamboat session. Knowing I am the most fussy eater among all, grandma would ask me to "plan the menu" and prepared them in advance. This year, we had codfish, scallops with broccoli, prawns, po-piah, yam, Japanese mushrooms, pork and many others.
All of us love yu sheng! This was served in a very pretty large plate and bought from Crystal Jade. Taste wide, it was not too bad but nothing exceptional.
Sis, Eugene and I chipped in and bought Le Royale ($36.50+ for 500g) from Canele to celebrate our mothers' birthdays. This was really small and expensive but I don't mind since we paid for quality rather than quantity. Chocolate mousse was layered with hazelnut feullitine, almond success and chocolate genoise with rum. Grandma thought that this was too sweet and gave me her share!
On the 1st day of Chinese New Year, we had yu sheng again! This time, this was bought from a famous stall in Chinatown and tasted excellent!
Happy Chinese New Year to everyone! May the new year be filled with joy and laughter, good health and safety!
