Chinese New Year 2009

We invited some guests to join us in celebrating the first day of Chinese New Year.
As the guests arrived, the hostess led them to the hall.

Later, when mummy asked whether they were ready for food, look who was the first one to lift up his hand.

The first dish was Pohpiah.
Many looked puzzled as to how to start eating?
So a demonstration was held for the young ones, and followed by a competition.

This is how to wrap a pohpiah professionally:
"First, you spread the sauce around the top......"

As you can see, I have a lot of students:)

There was a tie in the
But the young gentlemen, Kai Chiean, stepped aside, and Shulin emerged "The Best Student of Class 2009:)"

On the other table, the men were struggling with the lack of proper skill for DIY Pohpiah.

When vinegar pork was next served, auntie Pit Yean was fast enough to grab the biggest piece...

and uncle #1 just looked in despair

More food followed..... Deep fried Char Siew, Pandan Chicken, pineapple fried rice, steam Hock Chew fish ball.
Also there were fried turnip cakes.
As for desert, we had chendol with red beans.

Everyone looked happy after consuming almost ALL the food!
Some even had to stand up in order to push in some more:)

Ah B was the Captain of the other table, and I am sure they enjoyed his jokes.

Just before they left, we took these photos:
The first generation

and the second generation......

Gong Xi Fa Cai,
