What we had on Chap Goh Mei

Since I didn't cooked for our reunion dinner, I took a little effort to cook dinner for Chap Goh Mei last week.

Hubby was working that day so a family dinner at home sounds better than eating out. Coupled with the school exam this week, I spent most of the day and weekend teaching and revising with my kids.

This was what we had on Chap Goh Mei evening.  I told you, I took a little bit of effort to prepare the dinner. The most important part was everyone was together on the table, saying grace and prayer and enjoying the dinner.


Steamed yellow chicken symbolises prosperity and togetherness.


Ngoh hiang/5-spices spring roll symbolises "团团圆圆” where family gets together.


Steamed silver pomfrets with ginger and salted mustard symbolises abundance and prosperity.

After that, the kids have some fireworks fun and the daddy lit the firecrackers to mark the end of Chinese New Year celebration.
