On the eve and 1st 2 days of the lunar new year, my family and I will have dinners with our relatives from my mom's side. For most of them, we only see them once a year. Lots of eating and shaking of hands with greetings and wishes. Some of the ang pows have lovely/cute designs.

The recent work trip to Tokyo late last month was quite tiring due to lack of sleep, but I was able to enjoy the food ("goma" black sesame pudding, teppanyaki dish of mixed rice, soba and beef tendon for lunch, warm udon with tempura for dinner, udon soup with tempura at a different restaurant for lunch), as well as a bit of sight-seeing (Asakusa and Sky Tree) on one of the nights with my colleagues.
Last month, I managed to squeeze in some time to make a chocolate cake using coconut milk and dorayaki (Japanese red bean pancakes). This weekend, sadly I can't bake, as I have been down with cough and runny nose. I'm looking forward to other weekends to try new recipes :)
