Reunion Dinner 2012


Chinese New Year won't be complete without reunion dinners. This is an important part of the Chinese traditions that helps keep the family bonded.


This year I did not help in the kitchen because of my big stomach and I can hardly stand for more than 15 minutes. However, I did snap some photos when my mom-in-law was preparing the delicious typical CNY dishes.

  4. Beverly's Secret: I did consume a little bit of alcohol, but all were cooked with chicken or prawns. It's ok to consume once in a while.
