Day +2765 : First Day of CNY - BBQ Dinner at Richard's House

I am fine today.

First of all, I would like to wish everyone a happy, healthy and prosperous Chinese New Year!

My brother, Richard, invited my family to his house for a BBQ dinner. The guests of honour of the night include some Richard's relatives and also our friend, brother Bean Tatt and his family who were now stationed in China.

Apart from many other food, Richard ordered 150 grilled chicken wings from a Malay friend with the price of RM1.50 each. According to Richard, any order consisting of 150 or above chicken wings is entitled for free delivery service. Richard ordered chicken wings many times a year for the church events. The chicken wings are very delicious :-)

Day +2764 : Chinese New Year Eve Dinner

I am fine today.

After blacking out for almost 100 days, I am back to blog again! I will blog from today onwards and make up the days not blogged before at the same time. I took a lot of photos during the blackout period and it is certainly my wish to share them with you. In addition to giving you an account of my life during this period of time, it serves a good mean to record my interesting life during the period. When I post anything related to the past, I will remind you and provide you links to access them.

Today is Chinese New Year Eve. I spent the whole day cooking :-) My wife and I prepared seven dishes in addition to the tedious-to-prepare acar. I will devote a special post on the making of acar later.

Most of my nieces and nephews went back to Sarawak to celebrate the Chinese New Year. Those who stayed behind are the eldest son of my youngest sister, Timothy, and two sons of my third sister (bone marrow donor), Lau Chih Yung and Raymond Lau. I invited them to have Chinese New Year Eve dinner with us.

It is so great to celebrate Chinese New Year with family members and relatives.
