Duanwu Festival 2010

Zongzi stuffed with chestnut, salted egg yolk, mushroom and spiced up pork. This homemade dumpling is exceedingly delicious!
Homemade Roasted chicken - This dish is my mom's favourite!

Orange and plum-flavoured pork fillet.

Rendang zongzi - coconut milk-flavoured glutinous rice stuffed with rendang pork and wrapped in pandan leaves. It is irresistibly good!

Mixed vegetables dish.

Pyramid-shaped zongzi - It is a must for Duanwu Festival!

Deluxe Fried Noodles in Foochow style.

Fried Whole Egg with meat filling.

Mouth-watering Salad Fish Fillet.

My childhood favourite - Fried bread with meat filling.

Today is Duanwu Festival or Dragon Boat Festival. Traditionally it goes with zongzi - a pyramid-shaped dumpling. Dragon Boat Racing is still popular in places like China and Hong Kong. But locally this tradition is almost lost!

Ever since I started blogging, I never missed to cover this festival. Our lovely culture and the enticing zongzi are the reasons!

The legend of Duanwu Festival tells us to be patriotic. Love Malaysia and do all you can to help this beautiful land to prosper!

Happy Duanwu to all my Chinese readers.
