Ramdom quote of the day :
" How come we say 'It's colder than hell outside' when isn't it realistically always colder than hell since hell is supposed to be fire and brimstone?"

Happy Lunar New Year every1 ....
been so tired these days with my back aching here n there ... but still managed to cover some places for visitation ...

Reunion with the family as usual for our is always done during lunch. With the usual suspects, me , sis and mum ....
As for dinner ... Had really gd sharks' fins soup ... ehh more of should be 佛跳墙 .... and the fins used ... i tink some1 should really call the protection of Sharks association for just this pot of soup that was being simmered like 3 days. The fins are like so thick and chunky which will make restaurant holders fall in shame when they are selling the sharkfin soup for the prices thay charge. The sea cucumber is cooked till of melting moments [tht should demostrate the power of the 'buo' gong of the chef], the amount of the abalone slices, japanese shitake mushrooms, scallops cubes , abalone clams used ... I tink my sister will die juz to exchange places with me just to drink that bowl of soup. Hmmzz too bad though coz i am nt really a fan of all these ... But i really like how the fish is being prepared, pan-frying the slices of meat and den deep-fried the bones and mix-ing them with a spring-onion, garlicy based sauce. Pig trotters are then double broiled with dried oysters(huo xi), seaweed(fa chai) till its cellulite being scrumptious... And tht is just the reunion dinner ....
K ... stop drooling every1 ... too much of tht is veri bad as well .. so moderation should be the correct way okie ?

As for the rest, can say they are juz hit and miss... But i did manage to have quite a few of my fav cny titbits - pineapple tarts esp the ones from bakingtray.com and they are inexpensive too( by nonya), i even know another supporter of their pineapple tarts too ... will target to get those nxt year. As for bak kwa, had some from jin fu yuen ... was told it is made out of real slices of meat instead of minced meat like others .. so tink sis would like it a lot ...

Tht sums up abt the food i consume ... wht abt urs ?
