Chinese New Year ‘Reunion Dinner @ Putien (莆田), 1 Utama Shopping Centre

When my paternal grandma was still around, my family and I used to go back to her house for reunion dinner. The reunion dinner menu includes steamed chicken, ngaku (arrowhead) with pork belly, steamed fish, braised sea cucumber with mushroom, herbal soup and more. Now that she’s no longer around, my family usually opt to have reunion dinner at Chinese restaurants coz it’s more convenient and save the hassle of cleaning up. This year, we had our Chinese New Year reunion dinner at Putien (莆田) which is located in 1 Utama Shopping Centre.

It’s a tradition to toss the Prosperity Salad or “Yee Sang” during CNY. From what I gather, the tradition of tossing this colorful Yee Sang is only popular in Malaysia and Singapore.

This blog is a platform to share what I love in life: food (eat), travel (play), photography (art) and life (thoughts and ideas). With passion for food, I share my foodie adventures and indulgences here. “There is no love sincerer than the love of food.”

Traveling makes us a better human being as we recognise the similarities and celebrate the differences of cultures between where we travel to and where we come from. “The World is a book, and those who do not travel read only a page.”

Photography do more than just capturing the best moments in our lives; they also help us tell our life stories. “Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving. What you have caught on film is captured forever… it remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything.”
