We are away from home for CNY this year. We just had a simple celebration with friends. Two days before Chinese New Year, we brought the girls to Umajimaya for the lion dance presentation, to get the "feel" of cny. ES & LS enjoyed it but MS....
She called for help when the lion came to her.
We bought a live dungeness crab for our pre reunion dinner.
The girls were excited to see the live dungeness crab is still moving.
On CNY eve, we attended ES's friend, YJ's party. The girls enjoyed themselve as it is party time again!
At night, we went for a steamboat reunion dinner with daddy's friends.
Gong Xi Fa Cai!
Happy dragon year from MS! She is getting ready for a dim sum lunch on the first day of cny.
We cooked some simple dishes for dinner during first day of cny.
There was not much of cny atmosphere here. To make it more like cny, I prepared some fried nian gao on the second day. Using low protein flour, baking powder, salad oil and water as the batter, it makes the fried nian gao more crispier than the one that I prepared previously.
We continue our adventure on dim sum lunch with JY's family at WK restaurant on day 2. The dim sum taste much more better than yesterday's and more choices.
