CNY Preview

Last Sunday evening it rained cats and dogs. We usually go out for dinners on Sundays but because of the rain, Mike called his brother to just buy back some noodles over to our place. To our surprise, there was more than noodles.

Yee-Sang!*

Mmm... Always so delicious.



* In case you have not heard of this, it's a Chinese kind of salad that comprises mainly of dried or pickled vegetables (cucumber, ginger, pomelo), a bunch or fresh carrots and radish, some other herbs, some crispy flour bits and raw fish/jellyfish. All these are to be tossed in a sweet and sour plum sauce with some pepper, cinnamon and sesame seeds. Everyone is to do the tossing together, symbolising a fellowship/ partnership we share (i.e. to be involved with each other).
Can check it out on Wikipedia too!
