eve of eve: thanks to ju for arranging, preparing and hosting the awesome cny reunion dinner!
eve: thanks to ju once again for hosting the mini reunion dinner! although these dishes are simple, but it’s homemade with love and very delicious! i love every single dish! cny makes me miss home a lot more, especially with all the family visits, cny goodies, gathering with close friends and all. once again, i’m spending this yearly chinese tradition away from home ): thankful for LY and besties here for making this cny cosier (: i’m contented.
1st day: Squadron activities in the day and dinner at night.
made the shanghainese rice cake 年糕 for breakfast. this is traditional, for my family. i eat this at every cny without fail, from granny’s to daddy’s and now i’m making it for LY! practice makes perfect! LY said this year’s tasted better than last year’s.
and I took out all the cny goodies! Have been keeping them (strictly, no touch till cny) in the cupboard. Wooh! There’s no way you can find any of such goodness in Dallas so this is heaven for us! Prawn rolls are my favourite cny goodies, what about you? However, I’ve been limited to 1/day as I’m still stuck with chronic cough, persistent flu and scratchy damn throat.
at night. finally can play dress-up.
outfit: dress/AX, stockings/tw night market, shoes/anthropologie
that’s my cny. what’s yours like? if you have yet to have a blast, there are 8 more days! weeeeeeee! we love 15 days of new year!
