Way back on the 9th of February, the Chinese New Year festival was officially launched…
The ‘May Chan Hong’ food stall… chilly pork, grilled dim sims and more
Chilly pork in the making! I’ve never known what these were officially called… but after some snooping around, I can conclude that they are called ‘bak kwa’ or ‘long yok’.

Cheers to a great start! What I love about being an ABC (Australian-born Chinese) is that I get to celebrate New Year twice. Nothing is better than getting that extra boost of motivation to fulfil the year’s resolutions.
On another note… As we were lazing on the grounds of Belmore Park like hobos, I was introduced to a website that was totally dedicated to TeoChew people! For those who don’t know what it is… simply put -it is a Chinese dialect. I’ve never been exposed to much of the history or culture, so now that I’m a member, there’s so much to be learnt! Check it out www.gaginang.org.
