It has been a while since the last time we went to my parents' house for reunion dinner on CNY eve. It wasn't meant to be this year too but we happened to drop by to pass some wild Longan fruits to them. The longan was from my in-law who bought over from Kapit.
So it happened when we dropped by at my parents, they were about to start eating lunch. Yes, they were having reunion lunch this year since my brother needed to go to his in-laws for dinner.
So we 'helped' ourselves to the reunion lunch. My mum's specialty dishes such as braised duck and bamboo shoot soup.
Then we drove back to my in-law's house to hang out. We also did the egg standing stuff and believe me, I did my egg standing stunt for the first time!
It took some time but I did made my egg standing still. So proud of myself. Jamie and daddy did theirs with ease while Jan can't do it. Next year try again, Jan!
Around 5pm, we had our reunion dinner. My brother-in-law did all the cooking.
His specialty got to be the vinegar pork trotter and fried white rice cake.

The kids had their turn to eat first on the table before the adults took their turn to enjoy the food.

While we were at the table, the cousins had a great time reconnected and taking many photos. It was fun looking at the kids, growing up and getting together on Chinese New Year eve.
