Grandpa's 5th Anniversary

>> Sunday, March 24, 2013

I've been so busy & unmotivated to blog since my last post. Whenever I have some free time, I would prefer to just rest & relax. I've SO many pending posts! I had to start somehow, somewhere, before the load gets larger! :S

*****
Grandpa's 5th (death) anniversary was last Sunday. The family will usually gather for a good meal & some catch-up. Grandpa cooks very well & food is something that the family loves at all times. Some of my aunts have been trying to "replicate" his signature dishes, but somehow the dishes just don't taste as great compared to when grandpa cooks it. Hmmm....what's missing?

Anyway, as of all family gatherings, we had a great time enjoying the abundance of home-cooked dishes. This year, the anniversary celebration had a very special fruits-and-veggie yee sang, patiently hand-cut by my aunty Jenny! It felt like CNY again...hahaha...nice! I'm SO BLESSED :D

The yee sang was very fresh, crispy, refreshing & just delicious! She even added slices of abalone...fuhhhh....

Smmoooooottttthhhhh.......... 

I love family dinners such as these. I'm probably one of the few fortunate & blessed ones to still have such extended-family gatherings from time to time :) It's no surprise that I am unable to lose weight!


Food + Family = :)
