新年快樂 Happy Chinese New Year

新年快樂 Happy Chinese New Year 2010 to all my foodie friends! Hoping you all have a fabulous time on this wonderful festive season. I just got back two days ago.

Ladies & gentlements, here's my in-laws! And it's Chinese New Year eve. They're all ready for the reunion dinner.

There's all together eleven dishes included the soup! I only prepared the 'Yong Tofu', 'tang yuen', steamed 'fatt kuih' & steamed 'Hee Ban' this year. Other than that were prepared by my hubby's elder siblings and sis-in-law.

Normally, we used to have 5 tables but this year, only 3 tables! Some of my hubby's siblings went to their other side in-laws place, just next door (they are neighbours) ! hehe....
*
What else after dinner! 'Mahjong' & cards game LOL, of coz!

I also have all my goodies bags ready to giveaway!

All nicely packed!

And these are extra treats for my friends... grape & banana cupcakes! Will post the recipe soon.

I left my sweetie at home alone for a couple of days and had asked a friend to feed her.

Again wishing all 新年快樂, 恭喜發財, 身體健康, 萬事如事.....恭喜恭喜!!!!! ^_^

Happy belated Chinese New Year to you too Kristy:) You have a big family. And how convenient that the other in-law house just right next door. The food looks really good. Only feel a bit sad for your sweetie for being home alone.
