Whoops! Mom is still editing the photos of the fabulous gifts that I got from JD & Max, so let me post some photos of the CNY celebrations at Mom's Grandpa's place! This year, it was a little bit more somber as Mom's Grandma is no longer around...plus, it was super hot weather this time of the year, so all we did was laze around the house most of the time >.<" Not that many photos, but we did have some on the reunion dinner! Okay, enough chitter chatter...here are the photos:
Here's how things go with the dish: the condiments and ingredients are laid out nicely on the plate, and when it is time everybody comes together with their pair of chopsticks and mixes the ingredients together, pulling them as high as possible. It gets messy at times, what with the many chopsticks hitting the dish all at once, but it's all good fun and has quite a bit of symbolism too. The action of 'pulling the food up' symbolizes the person going higher up in whatever he/she does, be it career or life...so it's supposed to mean good luck =) Or at least, that's what Mom gets out from it. *wink* At the end of it all, everyone enjoys a little bowl of the mixed dish...yummy! I managed to get a few bits from the things that fell from the table, but that's about it I guess >.<" Like I said before...so near, yet so far! =(
Well, that's about it for my CNY back in Seremban...the rest of the time we were there, we spent it watching TV and munching on CNY goodies. Heh! It's still CNY now, so the feasting is still on...LOL!
