Golden Honey Pheonix

Hey guy, have you figure out what to cook for this coming 'Chap Goh Meh', this Sunday ? 'Chap Goh Meh' is a Hokkien dialect which means 'Fifteenth Night' and it also means final day of the Chinese New Year celebration. And it also turns into an annual event to celebrate the Chinese Valentine's Day. In older days, 'Chap Goh Meh' was the only night of the year that the unmarried women were allowed to meet up or went on a date with their sweethearts. So, aren't we lucky! One of the most popular event for those unmarried men & women on that day is tossing or throwing mandarin oranges to the river or sea with the wish to find a good spouse. Hey, it's only meant for the unmarried one huh! hahaha....

Ta...da.... here's the classy Phoenix meat! haha.... Eventually, chicken meat would be called as Pheonix because they both under the category of birds. So, remember to chew slowly huh! No blaughing, you really need to chew slowly to feel the differences between the tender chicken meat and the spongy fish meat. Oooo... absolutely yummm..... So... think of Honey Pheonix think of me, right! haha... By the way, I'm a rooster! Nope, I'm a Pheeeeonix! ^_^
