CNY holiday!! (Part 1)

CNY celebration begin on the 1st day of CNY :

It was a kinda boring day for me. Did nothing except sending mum from temple to another to pray. Then my uncles came over to our house to "pai nian".

Fast forward to the 2nd day of CNY :

Its the day where chinese said "kai nian" (open year) where wedded daughter return home to "pai nian". So, early morning, we get ready to went back to grandma`s house and we ate lunch there. Then, mum and dad fetch grandma to relatives` house and i stayed back to help around in the house.

Then, at night, we went to another "belated reunion dinner" with my paternal family as most of my aunts from KL, Japan as well as Singapore came back. Thus, its sorta family reunion or gathering.

Although we were having dinner at a hotel restaurant, but the service was like a fast food chain. Reason : the hotel restaurant was fully booked and by a certain time, the table that one occupied will need to past to the next customers. *sweat* The food that we`re having :

1st dish: Lou Sang at 19:07 pm
2nd dish : Shark fin soup (but i think its more of "fan si" ) at 19:17 pm
3rd dish : Rebus (boiled?) prawns at 19:20 pm
4th dish : "Hou Si Fatt Choy" (oyster mushroom etc) at 19:30 pm
5th dish: Fish at 19:36 pm
6th dish : Glutinious rice at 19:40 pm
7th dish : Honeydew sago at 19:59pm
8th dish : Fried "nian gao" at 20:03 pm

Basically, we sapu-ed the whole dinner within 1 hour. Superfast!! However, the time for the adults was not enough. So they decided to go to the hotel where my aunts` staying to continue their "grandma"`s story until 11 ++ pm.

I never liked the dishes restaurants served during CNY... because they are pricey and pre-made.
