Insta.grub: Chinese New Year Open House

#instagrub: memories of #ChineseNewYear open houses come rushing back

How is your Chinese New Year celebration coming along? Mine has been extremely colourful and flavourful at the same time. I’ve been stuffing myself silly with so many delicious goodies in every hue on the Pantone chart. From my mum’s cooking to friend’s open houses, this is indeed a vibrant time to celebrate.

Who says it is just the season for red and gold eh?

Thanks to @Pureglutton for whipping up a “simple” lunch for us so savour. If the above Instagram is anything to go by, that’s by no mean a humble feat. You’re truly the Mistress of the Kitchen.

    CNY is really about the open houses and the makan, makan, makan, isn't it? ;)
