The connection to Xanga was sort of crap these days, loading Xanga page is taking way too long. Therefore I decided to not blog for couple of days. I have been busy for some moment too and sick, it was such a bad time. Talk about this later alright? Last two week was a Winter Solstice or Tong Yuen Festival according to the Chinese calendar. I was invited to Jowie’s mum to their warm home dinner earlier of the week. There was so many food!
On the exact day, I woke up a little late because the night before I went to a rave and lasted till 4:30 a.m. and woke up later at 10:30 a.m. I’ll let you know about the rave in the next post. Six hours of sleeping only but I’m still functioning, surprisingly! I hardly tolerate with the lack of sleep but I did this time. One dessert in this festival can never be missed out.
Glutinous rice balls! It’s made out of glutinous rice flour, sugar and water. I didn’t get to make it into small balls because I woke up late, remember? Anyways I helped in the kitchen.
Scoop out from the boiling water into a tub of normal temperature water. Then let it cool down for some time. Heat syrup made out of palm sugar, ginger and pandan leaves. When it boils scoop the glutinous rice balls into it.
Steamy hot, glutinous rice balls is ready to serve when it all floats up.
This is a typical Chinese prayers where you have Chinese leeks, whole steam chicken with roasted pork, fruits, rice wine and the glutinous rice balls dessert served on the altar for prayers for this festival.
