The Dong Zhi (冬至) or Winter Solstice Festival is one of the most significant festivals celebrated by the Chinese and many other East Asian nations. It is usually celebrated during the Dong zhi solar term (winter solstice) on or around December 22, where the sunshine is usually at its weakest and the daylight shortest.

It's the day to eat Tangyuan too. Yesterday was the first time i did it..so funny since i never even taste it. But then everything is in Google nowadays. And a little bit info on how he like it, then the end result..ok, i forgot to take the picture earlier..so that is the picture of finished Tangyuan.. ha ha..at least my first try being appreciated..
I've done the Tangyuan with Ginger soup. But as i forgot to put newly cook balls in the hot water instead of straight to the soup, i got it murky instead of clear..duhh..my bad..i forgot the step by step guide of the recipe..
Apart from Tangyuan i cooked ( proudly talk big..hehe) Prawn with chilli, black pepper and sauce..Fried fish..lamb with black pepper and spring onion..sew bak choy ( spelling kinda off).. mushroom with tofu and rice.. so i got all in except for piggy la.. fish = every years will be lucky, prawn=always laugh, roasted piggy=wealthy, spring onion=clever
Sighh..family should have stick together..
