恭喜发财! Here’s wishing all of you a Prosperous Lunar New Year! A touch of Longevity doesn’t hurt either. 😛
This is the festive period of the year where good food family values come together
What is more representative of Chinese New Year custom than the Reunion dinner (年夜飯)?
Glistening grilled shrimps.
scallops. Sesame oil marinated pork. Bouncy fish spheres (balls sounds too crude ~lol).
crabs with oozing roe.
Spicy chicken curry. And the very intense pork ribs simmered in candlenut (Aleurites moluccana) sauce.
And aside from the gastronomic indulgence. A few images of the festive symbolisms.
