Happy Chinese New Year

A wish for us to you...

This is what's happening on my side of the world on this holiday

A far cry from the heat that usually accompanies CNY celebrations back home

Our "reunion" dinner --

I remember having rice and chinese sausages (along with other dishes) on the morning of the first day of Chinese New Year at my grandmother's house with all of my mother's siblings and their families prior to other extended family members arriving for their CNY visits. Then it is pretty much house-hopping for the rest of the week or so.

Our dinner for tonight -- an odd one to be sure, to celebrate, but it's a lot better than instant noodles, yah? (although I do love my indomie). My second attempt at a roast chicken, and my first attempt at gravy....yumm..the gravy.....

Isabel's first experience of eating a chicken off the bone

Still figuring out how it works...

Yummy, she says!

Still wish we were back though.
Perhaps next year.
