Dong Zhi And Tangyuan - Part 3 (Final)

The luscious New York Cheese Cake - Happy Birthday, mom!
Before cutting the cake - let's have a shot first.
The succulent Hot Dish - we cast aside the health count for the time being.
Thereafter, we adjourned to a Christmas shopping spree!

Today (Dec. 22) is Dong Zhi and it calls for celebration according to Chinese culture. Traditionally, the festival is never complete without a family dinner.

My sisters decided days ago to fly back from Kuching this afternoon to celebrate mom's birthday in advance. Coincidentally it is on Dong Zhi, so it has become a perfect two-in-one occasion for our family this evening.

Dong Zhi seems to trend towards having family dining out for celebration. The traditional home-cooking dwindles with time and change of lifestyle.

Most of the restaurants in Sibu will do a bustling business tonight. I made reservation with Blue Splendour Restaurant at Wisma Sanyan, only to be told that the price has gone up in tandem with spiralling inflation, reasonably by 7%.

The dinner gathering was a wonderful occasion for us. What we treasured most was the reunion of our family in this cordial manner - the sentimentally- tied siblings with dear mom chatting joyfully over succulent foods.

Tumi, she is Chui Hung, my third elder sister. Both of you were in the same class in the upper secobdary school. She appreciated your greetings. In return, my sister asked me to convey to you her Christmas wishes.

Still the health concerns mar the overall
positive sides of this economic growth as
people take their health problems as the cost of development which
is indeed pretty higher. For the thick and curly hair, it is best to use the Moroccan Oil.
Sometimes, this process starts from the temples and goes back, and sometimes it begins from the top of the head.
When choosing a treatment for your own hair, pick something organically grown
or natural as opposed to something fabricated. 5 ml Kalonji Oil
mixed at a hot drink after supper gives a quiet sleep all during the night.

This can be flight simulator version FS2002, FS2004 or the latest version of Flight simulator, FSX.
Most of us has a chance to experience the amazing adventure of some kind of aircraft
simulators. You must, however, practice auto-rotations at the flying field with the help of an instructor.

There were a few problems with setting the game up, but
once we went through the manuals, these were mostly explained.
Unfortunately, the series has been dormant for quite some time and there isn't any indication that it will be returning anytime soon.
