It is Chinese New Year tomorrow, the year of the rabbit! As per usual, the fam and I will be spending Sunday in and around China Town to join in with the festiveness. It is also my mothers birthday on Saturday, so its double celebrations this weekend! My house smells fucking good as I type this, mother has made a FEAST! A duck has been roasted, pork has been crackled, Nian gao (CNY cake) has been steamed and fried to all its sweet and sticky gloriousness. YUM YUM YUM. OHHH, and we also have meat wrapped in sticky rice which is then wrapped in banana leaves, I have no idea what this is called in English, for now I will call it Bloody Damn Good When Fried.
I would show you guys pictures but it just looks like greasy goodness on my camera. Sorry, google images have better photos, try searching "Chinese New Year Feast."
Happy Lunar New Year/ Gong Hei Fat Choi everyone!!!!
