The Eve of the Year of OX

On the eve of every Chinese New Year, it's a tradition for most of the Chinese family to shower with the water of Pomelo leaves before dinner to wash away the misfortune to start a brand new year. We did the same every year without failed.

We also placed some food on the dinning table to welcome an abundance of food into our home in the coming years.

We had a simple family dinner with my parents and my eldest brother's family this new year's eve. Me and mum did the cooking together. Mum boiled chicken soup in advance and it smelled so nice when I arrived.

Fish is a most for us
