Reunion dinner with family

Finally I'm back to work. Received hoi gong lai see (start work angpow?) from Boss and Mom. There are a lot of biscuits to eat in the office as well as at home.

I've seen that most of you blogger friends have posted about your reunion dinner. So I'll share about mine too. As usual, my Dad the main cook in the house, will cook our reunion dinner. There are 6 dishes all together, which means 'good luck'. If you haven't know, '6' in Hokkien sounds like 'luck'. By the way, I'm Hakka.

'Cheong Sau Min' or Longevity Noodles or Long Life Noddles is my favourite.
As usual, I eat more noddles than rice.

On Lunar New Year, we must 'siew ha ha' (laugh). So 'ha' as in prawns in Cantonese is a must.

Fish is a must in Chinese reunion dinner as it represents 'nin ni yau yu' (every year
there's more or extra food). And fish in Cantonese is 'yu'.

Of course there must be roast pork on the table too.

So does steamed chicken.

This is my Dad's specialty, the spring rolls.

Finally there must be a perfect drink. Like every other year, we will have our version of cocktail (mixture of jelly, canned fruits and Shandy).
