currently: carrying so many food babies I will soon give birth to dumpling children and name them after the members of Switchfoot and Doctor Who characters.
Even though Chinese New Year started like a week ago, I feel that it is still valid to keep saying Chinese New Year until the 15 days are over. Or at least before I explode by the end of these holidays. Which is probable. My efforts to keep exercising have been taken over by the time that is needed to keep eating.
It's like I have Audrey II in my stomach going:
"FEED ME SEYMOUR. FEED ME ALL NIGHT LONG."
(Youtube Little Shop of Horrors if you don't get the reference...)
Anyway, here's a post to explain to you what exactly I have been so busy eating, and why in a week's time I will have gained another five kilos.
Kuih Kapit: (pron: kway ka-pet)
Pour, cook, peel and fold. Done :)
Cashew cookies (or traditionally made as peanut cookies)
Kuih Bangkit (pron: kway bahn-kit)
Long Yook (pron: long yeook)
Yee Sang (pron: Yee Sahng)
You spend a good amount of time prepping this salad like meal, making it look presentable - only to do the New Year Toss:
And that's just PART of the food I've been eating. There is just so much stuff to eat that our fridge has constant leftovers. Fattening, but fantastic.
Happy Chinese New Year Feasting!
