Happy Chinese New Year!
Even though I come from a very traditional and conservative Chinese family, the Chinese New Year was celebrated quietly and without much fanfare. There was the usual offerings of food and prayer to ancestors and Chinese gods. No dragon dances and angpaws for this year though.
One of the things that I really look forward to during the Chinese New Year are the boxes of tikoy, or ti-ke as my father calls them. Ti means sweet, and ke means cake. As I mentioned in my other blog , I like dipping tikoy in catsup. In fact, for the most part of my life, that was how I thought tikoy was eaten --dipped in catsup!
Anyway, happy Chinese New Year to all!
