Tang Yuan day=)

I'm sorry for the lack of updates now a days cause I've been busies with the BlogShop (J'R La Bellee). teehee* Do visit it when you're free yea. ;)

Okay I know I was kinda late to post about the celebration of "Dong Zhi".. sorry guys.
22nd December We celebrate Dong Zhi eating tang yuan which are glutinous rice balls in a sweet syrup. Dong Zhi (Winter Solstice) which in Mandarin means "the extreme of winter". I wish everyone great happiness and optimism. (The belated wishes) haha.=p

On 21st December night.
I love this month and this day in every year! Cause I love to eat Tang Yuan so so much!=D Every year my family will bought many colourfulls glutinous rice flour and we make it into a small balls. hehe.. I do enjoy doing it with my 2 mans in this family.
haha..I was too ugly that is why I PS it! *tsk tsk* lighten up the picture!=p

I ask my dad to smile with teeth and he gave me this smile.. cutee! haha
Tang Yuan are then dropped into a pot of boiling water and once the tang yuan float, they are cooked. I never get tired of the sticky chewy glutinous rice balls served in a thick, sweet syrup made from brown sugar. Believe it or not I can finish this whole pot alone! =D But we have to waited till the next day only can eat cause we had to go for prayer 1st on the next day morning!
