Happy Chinese New Year!

Technically CNY is on Saturday, January 28th this year however tonight we had our family gathering. A work night so I (and Janice) are quite pooped out – thankfully Madaleine is finally down for her night sleep, yahoo! Now we can clean up after the party hah!

Here are a whack load of food photos and when I have time I might try to remember “the recipe” and blog share =)
