This is my first Chinese new year at my new house with frog. Chinese New Year means doing spring cleaning of the house, whipping out delicious dishes for the family, visiting at the relatives’ houses, eating the festive cookies and angboas for the children! There are so many things to be done with too little holidays given. Will enjoy ourselves to the maximum!

As this is our first lunar New Year together, I had cooked some of the Chinese New Year dishes for frog and mama frog. We had our first reunion lunch together on Chu xi. This is the first time I had cooked so many dishes. Actually cooking is fun but the clearing part make most people take off the idea of cooking for a small family. My first dish is steam cod fish. It is a must to eat fish during Chinese New Year. Nian Nian you yu!
