... a very busy day for us. It is the seventh day of Chinese New Year (CNY) which is known as "Yan Yat." "Yan Yat" means everyone's birthday. In Malaysia, we have a special dish called "Yee Sang" during CNY and today is the day to have it. "Yee Sang" is a salad dish with raw fish in it. This dish is eaten with anticipation that the coming year will be joyous, in good health, good luck and prosperous. By the way, this is the year of the water snake.
Here I would like to share a link to another CNY song :
We had to run errands before we left for the sub-urbs of Chicago to have some Malaysian food like Nasi Lemak, Loh Shee Fun, Char Kway Teow and Hainamese Chicken Rice. I forgot to take pictures. After that, we went to Mitsuwa to get some groceries. We went back to Asian Noodle House to get Yong Tau Foo to go (Malay word for to go is bungkus.) Hubby got some White Castle to go as well.
Hope everyone is enjoying their weekend!
