Day 2 of Chinese New Year, today went visiting at my brother's house where all the siblings and family gathered to exchange Chinese New Year's greetings and wishes. The second day of the Chinese New Year, known as "beginning of the year" was when married daughters visited their birth parents, relatives and close friends. (Traditionally, married daughters didn't have the opportunity to visit their birth families frequently.) Read more from wikipedia As my parents were not around anymore, so we prayed and make offerings to our parents. After prayers, we had lunch, we ate what we offered to our parents, it was as if our parents are with us. For desserts, we had mango pudding, I made them. :)

Day 1 of Chinese New Year, had lunch with family and my in laws. Cooked some curry chicken, assorted vegetables, fried meehoon and deep fried some mini spring roll and cuttlefish balls. Ordered some pizza too. For dessert, I made some mango pudding. Chinese New Year is a very tired affair for me, had to spring clean the house, do marketing , cooked reunion dinner on the eve of Chinese New Year and cooked lunch for guests on Day 1 of Chinese New Year.

After so much festive food, had simple lunch of sweet potato porridge, assorted vegetables and minced meat patties with shrimp paste. Using one of my tiffin container, I used about 200 gm of minced meat, one teaspoon cornflour, one teaspoon Lee Kum Kee shrimp paste and one and half teaspoon sugar (adjusted to personal taste), placed in the oven and baked for 20 to 30 minutes at 200 degrees celsius. The minced meat goes well with the porridge, and for the assorted vegetables, i parboiled them in hot water first, then stir fry with some oyster sauce.

Three Dishes and One Soup prepared and cooked in one hour. Just marinated the drumstick earlier then popped into the oven to baked, the oven do the cooking on its own. Throw all the lotus, pork ribs, dried scallops, nuts and water into the pot and cooked the soup. So two dishes done and let them cooked on their own. So I just had to deep fried the ngoh hiang and stir fry the sambal kangkong. Now who is going to wash all the dishes? :(
