Today's the first day of the Chinese Lunar New Year of the Fire Boar. So here's wishing all
A Happy New Year! May this year brings lots of good times, happy moments and excellence in everything!

For the customary family reunion lunch/dinner yesterday, I made some little contributions.

Chilled Water Chestnut Cake. Cooling & refreshing! Link to recipe here.

And from Gina, I made some white nian gao. I didn't have any other suitable molds other than my mooncake jelly molds. Anyhow, they still look auspicious for the occasion, don't you think?

viv, your orange colour on the nian gao is very well done! I can't seem to get that nice orangey colour. mine are either too orange or too yellow. Impressive work.

Thanks Gina. Mine were not as good looking as your "fish nian gaos" though. Thanks for sharing the recipe again. :)
