Friday was the Chap Goh Mei. 15 days of Chinese New Year has ended, just like that. Everything felt like wind, come quick and go as quick as well. Not much of a celebration this year but we must uphold the tradition as much as we can.
Chap Goh Mei is as important as the reunion dinner on the eve. However I did not cook as extravagant as our reunion dinner as the boys had their homeworks and tuition as usual that day. I was rushing in and out sending and picking the boys so no time to cook much.
Hubby came back early from work that evening. By the time the boys and I reached home slightly after 6pm, he was preparing a pack of firecracker outside our house.
Everyone got to watch the rattling firecrackers before we were ready to take our dinner.
Another half, I marinated the prawns in tamarind juice for few minutes before pan fried them. It was nice as well.
And that was our Chap Goh Mei dinner.
