Last Day Celebration

Today marks the last day of the Lunar New Year . This year, it is an extremely laid back for us. With hubby off for a week, besides visiting my relatives and meeting up with my college classmates, we basically stay home most of the time.

Anyway, for yesterday's gathering at LS's place, I wanted to try my hand at preparing Yu Sheng as it looks really easy after seeing how my sister prepared it. Also my mom gave me a bag of those ready made condiments that goes with it, so it should be really easy peasy job.

Unfortunately I used the wrong size plate for my mandolin and ended up with thick shreds instead of thin ones. I didn't really have time to explore another option as I had to rush to church.

I used smoked salmon instead of raw as I didn't want to risk food contamination during this period.

Overall, it tasted not that bad except that if the shreds are finer, it would have been better.

To end this festive period, I have gotten another award. Yes, it definitely feel sweet.

Kitchen Flavours actually presented two awards but since I had already done the Libester Award, I will not repeat it again.

Thanks for thinking of me. You definitely make my day.

    lena, I had a cut while doing it. Perhaps coz I woke up really early to prepare it. But I learnt, next year I will use a finer plate. Overall, it is really easy with those condiments.
