In the Year of the Rabbit

28 Feb

CNY Eve reunion dinner's Yu-Sheng (Click picture for more information). A jazzed up family special edition filled with extra yummy things.


Hello! So this is very late, but here’s wishing everyone a happy Chinese New Year, I hope it has been a good one filled with plenty of glorious food and hopefully, for some, lots and lots of red packets!

I have been busy whilst in Singapore, working most of the day away, 6 days a week. Working in a kitchen has been something I have been planning on for a while now, despite having worked on my health science degree in the past 4 years. It appears to be an important year for me to spend some time gaining experiences and making important life decisions, and after all,  I was born in the Year of the Rabbit, my year..!????

… Okay, not entirely sure how it is relevant myself, but irregardless of what lies in the year ahead, we all still need to eat, right..? May the eating continue!

So here’s to a good Year of the Rabbit for everyone, Gong Xi Fa Cai!! 新年快乐!

But what CNY REALLY means to me, and my family, is the EATING. Besides getting  those red packets, of course. People splurge this time of year, if it’s any time to go all out and buy the best you can afford and share it with family. My family is no exception. As I finally folded my waitressing apron for the final time of the summer, I was eagerly anticipating my 4 day, non-stop, stuff-your-face-silly feasting before I returned to Sydney.
