TUSAL & Chinese New Year

Boy, the months are sure rolling by fast!!! It's February already and time for the TUSAL update!!! (Check out Daffycat's blog for more info.)

I'm quite pleased with how my ORT jar is looking this month. With finishing Namaste for the in-laws and starting Terrace Arch for my favorite aunt, the deposits have been hefty and colorful. :D



This month's new moon also heralds in the Lunar Year of the Rabbit. The 4th symbol in the Chinese Zodiac,
"Rabbit people are gracious, good friend, kind, sensitive, soft-spoken, amiable, elegant, reserved, cautious, artistic, thorough, tender, self-assured, shy, astute, compassionate, lucky, flexible. Can be moody, detached, superficial, self-indulgent, opportunistic, stubborn." - Wikipedia.com
It's a little more festive for us this year as my parents are here (from Malaysia). YAY!!!! My cousin and I had initially planned back to back dinners, to make the best out of our 'pigging out' sessions, but then ran into some scheduling problems. Instead, we will now be pigging out on TWO separate weekends... our place this Saturday and her place next Friday.

On the menu this Saturday is chinese BBQ pork, braised chicken with shiitake mushrooms, chinese broccoli with scallops, friend tang hoon (bean/glass noodles), barley and dried tofu skin dessert 'soup.' I'll have to remember to take pictures. :D


GONG XI FA CAI!!
Wishing everyone a happy and prosperous new year!!
