Reunion lunch

This year same as last year, we had reunion late lunch instead of dinner because all my in laws are flying off for holidays at night, so we had it earlier instead of dinner, so everyone can have more time to have last minute packing and cleaning.

A week before chinese new year, we all are busy. In laws and hub were busy with their biz and so do i ( i busy with kids, homework, music class, then my company dinner), almost every night i only sleep at 12.30am. I only manage to prepare the "ang pow" packets night before the chinese new year eve.

Saturday, woke up and packed some breakfast for my boys, then we start preparing the lunch. See what we had for our reunion lunch?



vege, two types of prawns - kam hiong and sweet and sour prawns, steam chicken, braised mushroom with meat, braised pork knuckle with mushroom and "fatt choi", fried meat roll and soup.



We had our yummy and simple lunch at 2pm in the afternoon, after lunch, hub and brother in law light up some fire crackers and all kids are excited ( you know we hardly can see or hear fire crackers or fire works here in KL). Unlike at my hometown Sibu, you can hear and see and play a lot!

After lunch, sister in laws and hub and mother in law playing mahjong, kids playing themselves, and i do my last minute cleaning in my room and kid's toy room.

We sent in laws off to KL Sentral at 7pm, then me and hubs and the kids went to hubs close friend's house to join them for steamboat dinner with their family. That is our chinese new year eve, and we count down chinese new year in front of TV. :(

Gong Xi Fa Cai Everyone!!!
