this is my first time celebrating chinese new year away from home. and i sure do miss all the usual chinese new year festivities.
like all my grandma's home made cny goodies. 9 layered cake, the white biscuit that melts in your mouth, pineapple tarts, popiah, logan fungus soup and my favourite kueh lapis! yummy! thanks to my mum, i brought over a box of pineapple tarts and kueh lapis which she bought from bengawan solo. but more importantly, i missed hanging out with my family and friends over the cny to catch movies, fireworks, chill out, visitation, poker, blackjack & mahjong!! what's cny without blackjack and mahjong man? xP
so how was cny over here in sweden you may ask? as some of you might have checked out my photos and videos, we had our own celebration here too. and it was almost as happening as it should be. i had 3 different cny celebrations here with 3 different groups of people. almost like gng for visitations man.. heh.. not bad ah.. just here for 3 weeks and can do visitations liao.. ;)
well, we had the first celebration with the nus peeps on fri night. the ncst5. ncst6 and the last minute invite of the sep people came together to have a pot luck reunion dinner, abt 20 of us. we had tons of variety of food & i made bak kut teh! power right? and it was well received too! all thanx to my darling for buying it for me. too bad no yu char kueh.
