The first thing I saw when reach home on Chinese New Year Eve was the LCD TV dad got from MBF. He finally decided to install it and put aside the old TV. As I mentioned earlier, the traffic on highway was smooth while we’re on the way back. But then Ipoh’s weather was freaking warm and hot! Same goes for Kuala Kangsar.
Reunion dinner is a common practice for my family; everyone (the five of us) will gather for dinner every year. Dad will go to the market to get one whole roast chicken and siew yoke as he know which place has the best one.
The stir-fry cucumber was a favourite among us. Mom don’t cook it till it became soft and mushy though. As cucumber is edible raw, she just stir fry the veggie with chopped garlic, chicken, chopped red chillies and sliced fish cake. She then add in some lime juice and there you go, a slightly spicy and tangy dish.
The next morning, we had fried vegetarian meehoon as we usually do vegetarian meal on the first day of Chinese New Year. No picture on that, though.
Can’t resist myself to attack the cookies (well, some of them) such as the peanut cookie, pineapple tarts and chicken floss roll. I just realised the chicken floss roll is not vegetarian after I ate them. 😛 The pineapple tart was not really good, the filling was not sufficient.
