HAPPY CHINESE NEW YEAR 2013

What is Chinese New Year?  To me, it is a dateline to fulfill after many, many days of preparation [shopping, cleaning, baking, cooking etc].  Many says if you don't go through these, there is no CNY mood.  So must do and do to have that feel of celebration coming soon.

Anyway, when you have older people in the house, all these duties must be done.  Hopefully, one day when I'm that age, I would scrape most of these routine things and sit down to enjoy CNY like those days when we were young [everything taken care off by our parents and grandparents].  But nowadays, the younger generation won't do much for you.  They too wants to simplify the traditional practices.   Is it a good thing or bad thing?

Wow! before I start my 'CNY duties' at my MIL's place, the most important thing to do now is to send my CNY greetings and wishes to all readers and fellow food bloggers.  It's great fun having all of you around all this time.  The encouraging comments and sharing of valuable views about baking, cooking and all the things that are happening are very much appreciated.  Hope    all these wonderful times will remain for as long as possible.

Kimmy, last two years I cooked for only 8 people within my immediate family and I felt tired. And the number of people that you cook for is much more than that! I salute you! Anyway, I would like to wish you and your family Keong Hee Huat Chye and may 2013 bring all good things to you and it has been wonderful getting to know you and learning new dishes from you!

Hello my dear blogging friends Alice, Phong Hong, Esther Lau and lena, very happy to receive all these warm greetings and wishes for the new year. It has been great knowing all of you, sharing useful ideas about food. Me too wishing all 'KEONG HEE HUAT CHYE'. This year I heard a lot of these words HENG AH, ONG AH and HUAt AH. Hope all can understand the meaning. It's Hokkien dialect.
