My Dong Zhi Dinner

Yesterday, I seen a few blogs mentioning on the Winter Solstice Festival, and I waited today, as then I could also upload the photos of the dinner dishes which were prepared solely by my pair of hand.

Last year dishes can be found HERE.

This year, we do not have that many people for dinner, only my mum, 2 younger brothers and one of their GF, Princess and myself.  Therefore, I invited Ben over since I know he got no family member here.

So, for the 7 of us, we have a good dinner comprising the followings:-

There is also soup, and another fried fish which I didn’t take any photo of it.  And of course, we have the desserts as follows:-
