CNY Reunion Dinner 2012

Today is Chinese New Year Eve(22nd January 2012), Chinese always have Reunion Dinner during CNY Eve~


We decided to eat at home coz Grandma is at our place, so Mom prepared a simple Home-Style cooking dishes~ People who celebrated Chinese New Year Eve for their Reunion Dinner, there are a few choices.
1. Steamboat at Home
2. Have a New Year Package Meal at a Restaurant
3. Home cooked CNY Dinner
Vege Broccoli with Scallop (the orange color tiny decorations are called "Gou Qi Zi 枸杞子") Wolfberry is a Chinese herb, great stuffs, good for health in lots of ways. Can be used to brew Chinese Herbal Soup.

"CNY Wu Xiang" almost every family will have their home-made Wu Xiang. The skin is "Beancurd Skin" can be found at various places. As for the ingredients there are minced pork, minced fresh prawns, fish paste, chopped mushrooms, chopped carrots, chopped water chestnuts, chopped onions etc. It's really delicious and you can't stop eating~


Deep-fried Tiger Prawns, besides Japanese Deep-fried Tempura Prawns, I preferred this dish it reminds me so much when I was young~ The platter is amazing love the thick floury texture sometimes. =D


Best of the day for our simple Reunion Dinner, Shark fin with Crab meat soup! I think this may be the last time I eat Shark fin soup, coz the world is preventing people from selling shark fins soon. I've always love the Chinese style gravy-like soup, taste super yummy with some additional of black vinegar~


Happy Chinese New Year Eve <3 
Gonna eat for the next few days at relative's house T_T
