|Kids practising the dragon dance for the new year|
This is our third new year celebration together. We had our reunion dinner one day earlier than usual (guess we couldn't wait to usher out 2008!) We whipped up a lavish dinner. I made my annual new year cake (made from glutinous rice flour, and baked instead of the traditional steamed). For some mind boggling reason, the cake turned out different - more like a biscotti than the sticky chewy rice cake...Huh? I'm still baffled about what went wrong. The good news is that the "biscotti" was good and everybody loved it! That felt like an auspicious beginning of the year to me.
May the new year bring peace, health and much happiness!
