GUNG HAY FAT CHOI! SAN NIN FAAI LOK! Or, if you prefer, GONG XI FA CAI! XIN NIAN KUAI LE!

Happy Chinese New Year of the Wabbit to all of my readers! Just a quick New Year's post so I can get back to stuffing my fat face with homemade New Year's food. And it's another foodie-douche post! Last night I hung out with Wei's family for New Year's Eve dinner and below are pics of the delicious spread. The pics came out kinda crap as I used my Blackberry and really wasn't much interested in taking pics as I was in sticking my pudgy mug into each and every dish. Above, in lieu of a hong bao, Wei gave me this awesome unsubtitled, shot-on-video, CAT III laserdisc. THE STORY OF A GIGOLO. Whaddaya say about a girl like that?

We sat at the kiddies table....in the foyer! It's because I'm white!


Tea Eggs. A personal favorite.



Salty Marinated Pork

Bean Sprout and Vegetable Stir-Fry

Fried Gluten


Vegetable Bean Curd Wrap



A new homemade masterpiece from Wei's mother. Meatballs on the Half Shell. Meatball and oyster. Delicious!

Jellyfish. Another personal favorite.



Pearl Rice Balls. Glutinous rice surrounds a pork meatball filling. Aces!



Pearl Rice Ball. Up close.

My first plate



Eight Treasures Rice

And this was just round one! Round two is Saturday evening when a handful of Wei's cousins come home from their respective $100,000 a year universities (all stereotypical Asian nerds
. WTF is AP Bio? haha) and converge on Wei's parents home to chow down, and engage in more Asian stereotypes by throwing some dice and then playing Mahjong until whenever?! It should be fun?! I'm packing some Tupperware for leftovers, hooking on my super heavy duty under wire manziere, and wearing spandex. And then it's back over on Sunday for the Super Bowl. Come Monday I'll be hitting up JC Penney's husky ladies section for new bras. Bring on the food!

  5. Diana, it was yummy! Round two begins in a few hours. Do you have any other favorites?

    Pat, the spandex is snug against my waist right now. We didn't have turnip cakes that night but we had them at dim sum last week. I took a pic too, but forgot to put it on that blog post.

    duriandave, hahaha Thanks so much! And the same to you, of course! =)

    AHND, I had never heard of the film and suspected it was a shoot on vid, unsubed, crapper. But I hoped it was a hidden gem. My suspicions were correct. Unfortunately. But, yeah, that cover hooked me at first sight.

  6. i was just about to buy that laserdisc lol i was watching it for months and you must have snached it from under my nose hehe. i was disapointed but now i know its one of those betacam jobs i'm ok with it now :) the yuen clan involvement almost convinced me but the fact it remained unsold for so long made me shy away from it. still the cover is awesome stuff and its a rare film.

  8. OCD, I had been eyeing it for months too and couldn't find any info on it. I had a feeling it was a shot on vid crapper. It seems rare though AND it's CAT III, so i'm ok with it! =P

    Thanks for the comment about Wei. That girl is alright! =P
