Juicy Tuesday 7 – Dragon Fruit Yoghurt Juice
JUICY TUESDAY IS BACK! Sorry ah, CNY is a crazy period and I have to finish blogging all the CNY blog posts by January, so Juicy Tuesday took a break. Now that CNY is ending soon, it is a very quiet period. I am still recuperating from all the pineapple tart / bak kwa / peanuts overload, so I will be taking things slower.
How’s your CNY? I am super busy this CNY! U see ah, every year, I have 2 reunion meals on CNY eve. One for lunch and the other for dinner. In the past, I am lucky to be able to go to my paternal side for reunion lunch. But this year, I worked for full day and I was feeling sore about it because I always look forward to the reunion lunch with my cousins.
So anyway, I requested for early release, waited for very long for a cab home. Man, it was real tired and hectic. By the time I reached home, everyone was waiting for me to start reunion dinner liao. Then after CNY, we decided to make our own abacus seeds this year! I am not a Hakka but I am a big fan of abacus seeds.
Day 1 is the most exciting day of CNY for me with extravagant dinner at Gu Ma’s house. Gu ma cooks exceptionally well and I always look forward to eating her dishes! How i wish i can learn cooking from her! Her specialty is suan pan zi and Kai says it tastes better than mine. Grrrrr. Plus she marinates the chicken with her HOMEMADE WINE! LI HAI!
Whats special this year is… my cousin brought her bf. And it is also the first time I brought Kai to this CNY gathering.
Day 2, we did the usual house visiting with the cousins and aunty who came from Guangzhou. Too busy running around so no photos. Day 3, we brought the relatives to River Ang Bao 2014. Very pretty at night leh, but way too crowded!
So that concludes my CNY Day 1, 2 and 3. Very busy right? I totally have little time to switch on my laptop. PLUS my cousins from Guangzhou is still in my house, because he is such an inquisitive boy, I can’t let him see my laptop if not he will want to play with it. So now, I can only switch on my laptop when he is asleep or hide in a small corner of my room to blog. SO DIFFICULT LAH, AIYO!
Before CNY, Aunty and I made this Dragon Fruit Yoghurt Juice which helps in ANTI-AGEING! One night, I was screaming in front of the mirror because I saw my tired looking eyes and I needed to 保养. Alamak! So we made this Dragon Fruit Yoghurt Juice to share with everyone!
Dragon fruit is a beautiful fruit with an intense colour, intriguing shape and delicious taste. It is also a favourite for cosmetic scientists because of its anti ageing and skin firming properties.
