Gong Xi Fa Cai

February 14th, in addition to being Valentine's Day, heralded in the Year of the Tiger. It's customary for families to gather for a huge feast to celebrate, and back home this was always a fun time. Since moving here, things are of course, much quieter and some years have gone by without much of a celebration.

As fortune and blessings would have it, my cousin and I ended up literally around the corner from each other.... halfway around the world. Hopefully the feast we cooked up would've made our moms proud. ;)

The fruit platter, which includes the "angpow"-- red packet.

Bok choy with fried tofu and enoki mushrooms.

Twice-cooked shrimp.

Char-Siu (BBQ pork)

Chinese broccoli with shitake mushrooms and scallops.

Chicken stewed with shitake mushroom, lily flower, and cloud ear.

Steamed chilean sea bass.

Sago with coconut milk and palm sugar.

The damages at the end of the night.... some plates have been cleared away.
