I Love Chinese New Year!

Not only because of the two days public holidays we Malaysians get but also, it's bounty time at the office! Haha. It's good to be surrounded by generous people. :)

Not only do I get mandarin oranges (though less in amount compared to previous years), I also got angpow from bosses and a colleague always, always brought me the nian gao ever since he knew I love eating them fried with yam.

Yeay, angpow collection is good this year! LOL

The day after tomorrow, I'm joining the queue at the company's Chinese New Year Open House and collect angpow from the MD. *smile*

  5. I had tasty nian gao this CNY too. They're good but can't eat too much coz it's deep fried. I love it with yam or sweet potato.

  9. Lina, sounds like you are having a blast! Awesome! More angpow somemore.. Never, never refuse an angpow because it comes with good tidings. I keep a few in my bag to have them with me all the time because they are good luck charms, sort of.

    As for nian gao, some people like them steamed and then dipped in grated coconut or kaya but mostly, it is deep-fried sandwiched between a slice of yam and sweet potato. Enjoy!

    Best wishes for a happy, healthy and prosperous lunar new year, Lina!

    Angpow is good luck charm, you say? Ha! Then I should keep a few too. Luck is good. :)

    Thanks for the wishes. I hope you have a great year ahead too.

  13. Mandarin oranges were more expensive this year, that's why people buy less I guess.

  16. @foong,
    Cannot go lah at Reminisce Cafe lah. Got stuff I cannot eat served there. @.@

    I wish the notes in the angpow packet are purple. Then faster can top-up funds for Japan trip! LOL

    I guess so - so expensive cannot buy a lot of mandarin oranges. Maybe I should wait for Panda to give some next year? ^_^
