Eve of CNY eve
Our Chinese New Year celebration this year is a little different as my parents are in KL instead of us going back to Malacca. We gathered at my eldest sister’s house on the eve of CNY eve for a feast before going back to my in-laws the next day.
Father and son ready to say goodbye to Santa and welcome the God of Prosperity instead :D
My mother cooked up a storm for us. Some of her Nyonya dishes are:
Assam Pedas. I’ve been craving for this so badly!
Sek Bak. Ethan’s favourite as I don’t cook pork at home and this is one of the rare opportunity he gets to eat this.
Cili garam. Everybody’s favourite.
Acar timun and cili. MY favourite! My goodness, I dunno how much I ate that night. I just can’t get enough of the sourish and appetising pickled cucumber. Drool!
Sengkuang and salad. We love this a lot too.
My mom also fried chicken for us all.
My mom’s famous fried chicken.
Ethan and Grandpa <3
See what my parents gave me!
We played our first kopek that night. Our first for 2013.
It was a great night where the entire family gets together and just have fun.
I know the Water Snake will be a great year for us all! :)

I am a mother to two boys; Ethan and Ayden and a wife to Darling William. I'm a stay at home mum who blogs to break the monotony of life and to avoid feeling jaded. Would love to get to know all the Super Mommies and Daddies and Babies or Singles out there with the hope that we can learn more from each other. Most of all, I am a happy person, and I hope YOU are too.
