Food, we celebrate

What we had during the CNY celebration.

Started off with steamboat on the eve where we had my in-laws, bro-in-laws and family; and hubby's cousin and family over.

We also ordered some side dishes from a coffee shop; namely fried rice, yam basket and nestum fish.

Yee sang brought by hubby's cousin from Sibu

A wonderful affair where everyone enjoyed the food, drinks and catching-up.

On the 1st day,  we went to my in-laws' house for chicken mee suah and then to church service. In the afternoon, we had some food for visitors that came. Hubby had this curry chicken and daging masak hitam pre-ordered from Sri Aman.

Wahhhhhhh!!!! All the nice food. That plate of big head prawns that size would cost at least 100 or 200, especially around Chinese New Year - uncooked!!!!
