Photostory Friday - Food I Didn't Eat

Chinese New Year didn't turn out exactly as I envisioned it. The day after my last post, I got the most horrible stomach bug that ruined the next few days. Eating is a big part of the festivities but I hardly got to eat anything. I just sat around most of the time, being envious of every one else.

This Photostory is all about the eating I didn't do.

Here's everyone mixing a sort of Chinese New Year salad. The aim is to toss it all as high as you can without spilling it off the plate and it will bring you luck and prosperity throughout the year.

This was at my father's cousin's house. There were several delicious curries here that I didn't get to try. She's a great at making Nyonya dishes.

And here's breakfast with Richard's family at a Dim Sum restaurant.

These are just the formal meals that I didn't gorge myself on. I didn't have the heart to take photos of all the cookies and cakes that I just stared at.

Nice to have you back! Hope you're feeling better again. Agnes and I both went through a terrible stomach virus a month or so ago, and I can really sympathize with you!

Kimber said...

I certainly hope you're feeling better now. So sorry to hear you didn't get to partake in the festivities.

Your BACK! Your front. Your side. We'll be wait for more pictures of all of them.

In the US .... in Missouri ... in St. Louis ... for some people, eating herring at midnight on New Years eve is supposed to bring good luck. They just don't tell you when the luck is going to show up.
