CNY Family Reunion Dinner @ Northpoint Residences

Angeline Wednesday, January 25, 2012 , , ,


During the Chinese New Year's Eve, without fail, families will gather for a feast known as ''Tuan Yuan Fan'', literally  translated as Reunion Dinner. Chinese New Year’s Eve dinner is the biggest event for this festival, this meal is comparable to Christmas dinner in the West. After dinner, some families go to local temples hours before the New Year begins to pray for a prosperous new year by lighting the first incense of the year. However in modern practice, many households hold parties, even hold a countdown to the New Year and will end the night with firecrackers. Traditionally, firecrackers were once lit to scare away evil spirits with the household doors sealed. Fireworks must be lit before 24:00 on the New Year’s Eve.

Can I join you all....reunion dinner on the table...wuff..wuff!
 
Arrowroot Soup
Arrowroot has a slighty nutty sweet taste. Boiled with chicken, it created a delicious and healthy soup.

Hakka Braised Pork with Yam is one of my mom's signature dish. It is a must-have dish and favourite dish of all.
 
 
Fried Squid seasoned with Curry Spices

This year around, mom didn't cooked much for the Reunion Dinner's feast as the following day is a Vegetarian Day.
