This year Chinese New Year seems to come by really quickly and we have barely prepared ourselves for the festive event. No more usual shopping around for clothes and groceries for us this time round.
The Kwans family decided to book a chalet and enjoy over the festive period since we do not go visiting much. As for the Tans family, its the usual to lunch at home and great grandpa house for visiting.
Woke up early in the morning to prepare the 盆菜 for the family from scratch. Been reading up on fellow friends posting their version of 盆菜 and we decided to join in the fun. Luckily the receipe is easily accessible on the internet and seriously, its pretty easy to make.
Firstly we add in ginger slice, garlic and oil to 爆香 before adding broth in.
This is also pretty much the first time i cook for the whole Tans family and im glad it turned out pretty decent. The family loves the diy soup broth and 二哥 was thinking it is from one of those 盆菜 ready-made ones. :)) we managed to clear the whole pot of yummy food with grandmaTan telling me to prepare again next year.
I think Morris is at the stage of 怕生 as he is sooooo gluey when we head to great grandpa house. He literally stick on to grandmaTan while we are about to enter the house for visiting.
We ended the day heading from Pasir ris to Pioneer to 大哥's place as papaTan drove for 40km. Have some mahjong and driving session for the family.
