This is another of the CNY dinner at Uncle’s place where Aunt cooked for us again. With their daughter, it’s 7 of us cousins and one grand nephew enjoying ourselves eating and chatting.
We are Hokkiens, and we were thinking, what is the youngest boy suppose to call the oldest in the house in Hokkien? The youngest that night calls the two oldest “Gor Chek Gong” and “Gor Chim Mah”. Sounds so old right?
Anyway, we “lou yu sheng” again. It’s one of those DIY packs from the supermarket.
Aunt can’t get any sashimi grade salmon, so she used abalone instead.
The Yu Sheng arrangement looks good? Maybe it’s because Yours Truly arranged it. ;-p
It’s really easy to prepare this at home like we did.
You buy a pack of the Yu Sheng package from the supermarket. Then buy the pre shredded veggies. (by the way, pre-shredded veggies cost $2, it’s so much convenient to buy these than to hurt your hands shredding them. We learnt our lessons from previous tries)
We added a pack of jelly fish and also half a peeled pomelo.
This is the finish product just before tossing.
Uncle was the one saying the ‘blessing’ phrases and pouring the stuff over.
Other stuff that we ate:
Aunt’s version of Babi Ponteh. We all love this. 😉
This is Satay Beef. Aunt’s has a friend who passed her some satay sauce made by her factory. She marinated the beef with ‘kunyit’ (turmeric) and the usual spices and then fry with the satay sauce. It turns out very nice.
This is the Sambal prawns and mini sotong.
Every decent kitchen should have a bottle of good home made sambal. Cooking dishes like this would be so easy. This is super ‘pedas’ and tasty.
We still had the ‘bak kerng’ rolls that our cousin made. 😉
This time cut into small pieces and deep fried.
I was too busy eating and chatting, I think I forgot to take photos of the veggies!
(Oh, Yu Sheng’s a salad, so that counts right?)
Here’s wishing you all 心想事成 xin xiang shi cheng. (Desires of your heart be granted)
Quoting from Psalm 37:4
“Delight yourself in the LORD and he will give you the desires of your heart. “
