Chinese New Year 2012 - Day 1

LUNCH @ Petaling Street (760 George St, Sydney NSW 2000)
I had Yee Sang + Roast Chicken Dry Noodle
My bad, I forgot my camera & my crackberry, sorry all no photos =(

DINNER @ Kopitiam (594 Harris St, Ultimo, Sydney NSW 2000).
Staying healthy in 2012 is part of my NY's resolution. Hhmmm can I really stick to it? With my flimsy will power & foodie friends around me, the answer is 'Maybe (leaning towards ... SO NOT)'. Year 2012 is just started & I broke my promise already? Chill out, I still have 11 months to go, plenty of time to execute my NY's resolution. I will start my NY's resolution after Chinese NY, my NY's resolution is on strike for 2 weeks. Wish me luck after CNY ...

Another Yee Sang moment & other CNY goodies for now .. why not?

Kopitiam Chinese New Year Menu

Yee Sang - Raw fish salad - light, fresh and tangy
Dragon Paradise spicy vegetables - petai beans, eggplant, french beans, okra. Sauce was really awesome pity I am not a fan of okra, the slimey bits kinda errrk me. We should have order one without okra.
Empress chicken - corn fed (kampong) chicken with soy sauce. Juicy & tasty chicken, i love their soy sauce. A tad different from other soy sauce, thick & dark plus a bit on the sweeter side.
Golden Dragon Deep Fried Pork Ribs - crunchy and tender porkie.

Happy Chinese New Year

Monday 23/01/12

Hello readers,

Long time no see or hear...yeah my bad for temporarily going MIA. I was overwhelmed with entertaining several overseas visitors from pre-Christmas till now. By the time I got home, I am normally too tired to do anything and lemme blame my speed of eating out as well for being greater than my speed of blogging, with realistic ratio of approx. 20:1. Food photos starting to pile up in my vintage computer. I will blog it slowly...I promise.

Firstly....GONG  XI FAT CHOI (Happy Chinese New Year), may the year of Dragon brings you good health, wealth, and unlimited supply of happiness. Thank you for visiting and reading my blog. Hopefully in 2012 and beyond you will visit me more often.

A little teaser from my dinner yesterday @ Kopitiam restaurant (594 Harris Street, Ultimo) with work collegues. Note...this is my 2nd Yee Sang on the day, I had Yee Sang during lunch as well. 
By the end of this week I think I will have at least 5 Yee Sang (I do love Yee Sang, but hopefully not 5x within a week). Stay tune for my next Chinese New Year outings. Have a great Chinese New Year, love you all =)
