The next night, celebrated CGM proper at KT's place. Invited me and my mum, SK and her granny, Ryan's cousin's and her business partner. Previously, she already had a series of steamboat sessions, this was only one of it. Aside from the typical steamboat fare, she cooked up Henghua Mee Suah and otak-otak. Drinks-wise there was wine and beer. The pencuci mulut was osmanthus jelly, Magnum and mango pudding. Fattening sekali. As she was quite busy, we entertained ourselves by watching TV, drinking and snacking. Wathed an interesting programme on 8TV that explained the origins of the Tua Pek Kong diety popular among the Hokkiens. The highlight of the evening was a fireworks extravaganza. Ryan finished off his stockpile that night and while he was at it, his neighbour outsourced the job to him too. We were also supposed to light a Kong Ming lantern but the rain dampened our plans. Quite interesting to note that the lantern was red, had gold ingot motifs and even a lucky number. Goodness. Typical. Helped to clean up then called it a night. That's all for CNY 2013!
P.S.: You can stop hating me now since I have finally wrapped up CNY2013! :P
