Dinner feast far, far away

I’m just gonna fill this post with pictures of food, because after all, that is what most people talk about during Chinese New Year, right?

We had a dinner gathering this evening at a nearby restaurant called Chili Palace with some of my hubby’s colleagues.  And if you think about it matter-of-factly, taking into account the time difference between Malaysia and the US, we actually had a reunion LUNCH, according to Malaysian time!


Not the typical Chinese New Year reunion dinner with dishes like jiu-hoo-char, too-thor-th’ng and the like though …  Oh, how I miss those!

The dishes we were served tonight were mostly chili-inspired, but what would you expect from a restaurant with the name “Chili” in it, eh? 


The primary objective was to get our tummies filled, and we definitely accomplished that!


Although…I’m still very much craving the pineapple tarts I always pig out on during Chinese New Year!  SIGH…

So there you go…I’ve posted my Chinese New Year feast pictures…now I can’t wait to drool over what everyone else had…. here’s wishing a happy and prosperous Chinese New Year to everyone, all the way from the US! 🙂

    Happy Chinese New Year! No celebration here though…. plan to drive over to San Jose to catch some festive mood on the street though.

    If fate brought us together, we might bump into you on the street!
