It was such an enjoyable evening. Both the adults and the children had loads of fun!
Viv, this is a little message for you but I have to express it in Chinese...
Here are my 5 friends whom I will tag:
Clement's bento is for breakfast so I didn't give him alot. (eh?! not a lot meh?) The pork ball and the hey-cho was the left over while I made him egg and cheese sandwich for breakfast. The broccoli were steamed in the morning.
This is very big portion!!! I had tofu, minced pork, pork balls, prawn rolls, broccoli, ginkgo buts and brown rice for lunch. This looks more like chap-chai-berng then bento... but it makes my morning more manageable. I can wake up at 5.30am instead of 5am with all the stuff prepared! Half an hour makes a lot of difference!
Today I tarbao some food my mom's place. My bento #64 for tomorrow will be chap-chai-berng styled again. I think I have found the way to make my life easier... heh heh heh.
Here's my tasty yummy crossiant with cheese, egg, veg. Tomatoes and tuna spread as sides. These 4 crossiants go to: Clement, HappyPig, YH and myself. Btw, YH, if you are reading this post, hope you get well soon!
Here's my very healthy lunch. Rice (left over from yesterday!!!!!!) and steam tofu with mushroom and oyster sauce. This is very easy to make and quite tasty too! I would love to add some prawns and topped it with some corriander if I have them in my fridge.
Chinese Wayang, or Chinese Opera, used to be such a big thing in the 70s. Some of my most memorble childhood memories was to follow my mom to watch Teochew opera or my grandma to watch Cantonese Opera. I couldn't understand a single word although I am fluent in Cantonese and I can understand Teochew. However, the fun was really to watch people, watch the performers' glittering costumes, and wait for mom to buy me cha-kwey-teow for supper or grandma to buy me a 20cents ice cream cone.
Grandma had passed on many many years ago. The art of Chinese Opera is dying too. I think it is really a pity that our children think that ge-tai is the norm to celebrate the hungry ghost festival.
