It's the first day of Chinese New Year. Gong Xi Fa Cai! Or as we say it at home, Keong Hee Huat Chye! Mum wanted to give us a treat, a banana leaf curry treat. Yay!
Our favorite hangout for Indian food, Krishna Curry House. We have been elsewhere but we always come back here.
This is always something to look forwards to. We always delight in those refills of vegetables and condiments.
Our favorite side dishes are....
... Claypot Mutton Curry....
.... Deed Fried Bittergourd, Mutton Varuval and Chicken Varuval.
Not forgetting the Sotong Goreng (crispy fried squids).
And Fried Chicken.
What a scrumptious meal. I could eat this everyday. Loads of rice, banjir (flooded) with curry chap (gravy) and enjoyed with all those spicy delights.
Dad chose to eat with his hand, which some swear is the best way to enjoy banana leaf rice. The food is tastier that way it seems.
Being a multi-cultural country, you can see these Chinese New Year decorations even in an Indian restaurant.
I was amused to see this Indian version of the waving cat. How charming!
Before lunch we visited my aunt who is my mum's elder sister.
Where I met Ms Brownies.
I think she deserves a post of her own. Meow!
