Happy New Year of the Golden Piglet!

What a good start to the new lunar year we've had! Missy's been totally indulgent letting us have a taste of almost all the new year's goodies from mandarin oranges to pineapple tarts to 'bak gua'!

Note to our international friends: 'Bak gua' is BBQ pork jerky.

Meatballs with rice, topped with cheddar cheese and bak gua bits.

For desserts, frozen yoghurt with strawberries and a drizzle of manuka honey!

We are happy little piglets indeed! Wishing all our Chinese friends a Happy & Prosperous New Year! Gong Xi Fa Cai!

1st Batch of Chinese New Year Goodies!

Today Missy was feeling real motivated and made lots of goodies! She wanted to bring Aunt Angeline and Unck Alson a 'lil something to thank them for accepting the last minute changes to our grooming appointment. Boy did they work late yesterday! We didn't finish till 11pm!

I crashed immediately after I got home. I was dead beat!

Oh well, what's a girl to do? But Missy made it all up by making us a special breakfast!

Missy's version of Hotcakes Happy Meal!

Always pictures first....

And here's what Missy made for Aunt Angeline and Uncle Alson:

Our all-time favourite, Apple Shortcake....

....and a melt-in-your-mouth Banana Pie!

Dear Aunt Angeline & Uncle Alson,

Thank you for getting us all ready for Chinese New Year! And for the ang paos too!
