Mom’s CNY Pun Choy Feast 

Mom designed her own pun choy (盆菜) feast for her loved ones this year. There were 14 ingredients altogether, and these ingredients were selected because so and so like this and that, she said.


Mom hard at work


She started reading pun choy recipe in newspaper few days before the BIG day, and I also played some recipe videos.

The pun choy was so well-loved by all, that we finished it in no time.


The hero in its full glory

The pun choy includes abalone, prawn, siu yok, steamed chicken, dried oyster, dried scallop, dried oyster, mushroom, sea cucumber, fish maw, brocolli, cauliflower, dried sea moss and razor clam.

Bf said aroy, so I gotta learn this recipe


A vegetarian dish


She also cooked two other dishes and her ngoy sum soup, but the pun choy was definitely the hero of the night.

Good job, mom!

Sin Choy Wah’s yee sang

Of course, we had our customary lo sang, thanks 2nd sis for the yee sang treat!


Travel opens up a whole new world, which is cliche but true. I am a strong advocate for independent and solo travel. I was born and raised in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia but now live in Bangkok, Thailand, resulted from a chance encounter in 2009 with my why-are-you-Thai bf. I am now split between two countries. One country for my bf, another for the family, for the occasional weekend together.
