I’ve always wanted to post this earlier but with post-Christmas feasting (or was it pre-New Year), then New Year’s eve and more festivities getting in the way, it was tough. Then of course all the pre-Chinese New Year to-dos and what-nots, the Lunar New Year is a lot earlier than normal and it is really a bit tiring. Fresh food has always been a hallmark of Chinese cuisine. I think in the rush for industrialization, we are really missing all that sort of stuff that our ancestors used to enjoy, like garden fresh vegetables, and succulent fresh fish right out of the lake. In our case, it’s right out of a tank but it doesn’t get better than this!
