A quick post on my CNY 2013 celebration! I literally feast my way through the month of Feb 2013...lol!
The preparation of the celebration started with spring cleaning and simple decoration at home! Followed by marathon baking of CNY goodies! Thanks again to Roger, Sharon and Sandra for the goodies you gave me and hope all of you enjoyed mine too!

Lai Huat Famous Sambal Fish Restaurant @ Toa Payoh
A pre-reunion dinner with aunt, mum, brothers and uncle's family! It's a special day in our family because it was an ice breaking dinner with my mum too. We have not been on talking term for years and finally this CNY we decided to let bygones be bygones!

Paradise Inn @ Thomson Plaza
A Pre-CNY lunch with colleagues before my workplace closed for CNY holidays. As I'm working in construction industry so usually we will close days before the public holidays.

We had Steamed Teochew style pomfret, Stir fry prawns in special sauce, Stewed mushroom and seacucumber, Ngoh hiang (homemade meat rolls), Stir fry leek with black fungus and roasted pork, Spinach with Abalone and Pig and fish maw soup!

CNY Day 2
Usually day 2 is visiting day but we woke up early that day to prepare some food for my uncle's guest. As Aunt Peggy was not feeling well so we gave him a helping hand! Korean rice roll and orange chiffon cake prepared by me. Aunt prepared the Fried Beehoon and Grilled Misowings.

CNY Day 8 - My Open House!
My turn to host a CNY lunch for my buddies. We prepared almost the same spread of food as CNY Day 1. Added Kimbap and jelly for dessert.
A catch up dinner with my uncle's family at Uncle Leong Seafood @ Toa Payoh after my friend left my place! Simply love the Crab beehoon soup though I'm not a crab lover!

CNY Day 10
A Pre-Yuan Xiao celebration lunch with my work lunch buddies at Sushi Tei @ Thomson Plaza!
Boss's CNY open house is an annual affair where he will invite all staff to his house for a dinner gathering. This year catering from Kriston (now known as Megu Catering Concept). I'm surprised that the food from such a prestige caterer was disappointing that evening.
