So what's the next festival?


Christmas is barely over, so is the new year celebration...the shopping malls are certainly very quick in changing their decorations accordingly.
Now it's red, red, and more red lanterns everywhere to usher in the Chinese New Year which falls on the 3rd of February this year,  only 3 weeks away!
What a beautiful sight! It's a great time for weekend shoppers and visitors to start another round of photo taking with the newly put up decorations!


The rabbit is here to help you usher in the new year!

Beat the drum for peace! :D I was too busy taking pictures I forgot to do that!

I baked these delicious egg tarts to enjoy today.  It's very easy to put together and the result was very satisfying. I used the leftover pastry that I had mixed for my trial pineapple cookies for the crust and I must say, they were delicious! There were no more left!



Below are the pineapple cookies that I had made a couple of days ago...

I just grate the pineapple before cooking, resulting in rough fibrous jam which I don't really like. I'll stick to my usual way of blending it instead.
Did a few in round balls....quite appealing, no?
