my first video post: chinese new year dinner~~~~

Hello my lovely blog friends!!! How are u lately? I've been enjoying life more than ever!!! I cooked, I ate, I enjoyed time with my lovely family and the joy of my life: The Boyfriend. ^_^
Our new year dinner was full of drama... we ordered the complete meal to be deliver two days before the new year day, but they never delivered it!! So, the day of the new year eve, I offered to prepare the whole meal..... and it turned out to be a big success! I enjoyed so much preparing good meal for my family. I think at the end, preparing the meal by ourselves was much more fun and more home-like than eat standard restaurant-type meal.
We didn't take much pic of the meal, but decided to film it. So, my first video post for you, with a small problem: it's in Chinese!!! But you'll see the whole meal, dish by dish. And if it happens that you understand Chinese, you'll also know their names the dear boyfriend had created for them. Okay, enough explanation, please enjoy the video! (it's <4min


At 12am, we also had dumplings (a tradition). I was still very full, but still managed to follow the tradition! :)

I hope you guys enjoyed my video post and bare with me with the language mismatch. I promise that my next video post will be in a understandable language. ^_^
