Winter Festival 2007

Posted: December 22, 2007 in Family Time

Today is Winter Festival; Ama prepared ‘tong yuen’. 

Made pink, yellow, green and orange coloured ones with peanut filling, served with red beans and soya milk. 

The Kids also follow! 

Sarn and May rolled the ‘rice balls’ (actually play dough!) and Jern was in charge of ‘boiling’ them.
