There has been a big hoo hah over the National Security Council's Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) for the coming Chinese New Year (CNY) celebrations.
There were criticisms, jokes and sarcasm over the restriction of the annual reunion dinner to only members of the same household.
Hello my fellow Chinese people. We are in the midst of a pandemic. The intention of the SOP is to restrict movement and congregation of people in order to minimize the risk of contracting/spreading the Covid-19 virus. How can you all not see this?
Sure it is our Chinese tradition to hold this reunion dinner every CNY so that our family members from near and far can come together for a joyful get together. I am disappointed too that I am unable to celebrate with my parents and my brothers.
But under the current circumstances I accept the restriction wholeheartedly. So please do not let emotion and sentiment rule. Use your brain, common sense and logic. Between tradition and safety, I say safety prevails especially for our old folks who are the most vulnerable.
Ok. Enough ranting from me. So how? Got bake cookies or not?
I dug out all my cookie jars and gave them a wash. They are all clean and ready to be filled. But I doubt if I can fill all of them up.
My trial run began yesterday. Testing testing. I admit, I am a bit rusty. And I forgot how tedious this can be.
There was time when I was super crazy about salmon. Then I got sick of it. But now I am enjoying it again. I get my supply from VFresh. This is my second order and I find the supplier reliable.
CNY is less than a week away. When I miss the CNY vibe, I shall reminisce and visit this post of my family's 2020 Renunion Dinner. Hopefully there will be one in 2022. Maybe by then, I will look like this.
