Happy Dongzhi!

Today is a once a year Dongzhi Festival. During this day, a sumptuous dinner is a must for all the family members to get together.

Fish, yam basket, tofu with vege and steamed chicken.

Roast pork and duck, deep fried prawns and fish.

Those were the many dishes I had with my family from my mama's side. It has been quite some time since I last had a dinner with so many people. I enjoyed both the dinner as well as the company.

Happy Dongzhi to everyone! Hope you all had a great one, too! :)
