Hi there, dear friends 😀
According to the Chinese calendar, tomorrow is the 18th day of the 6th lunar month, which is also the memorial day of my beloved late mother-in-law. She had passed away in 2004. However, I decided to do the memorial prayers today so that I could rest tomorrow (Sunday).
I was up early at 6 am and cooked my way through 7 traditional Chinese dishes to offer to the ancestors before 11 am. Joss sticks were lit and prayers were offered by my family for our ancestors’ blessings.
Here’s what I cooked ===>
These dishes are usually what we will have on Chinese festivals similar to my :-
The main “star” of the feast was, of course, the Homemade Yummy Crispy Roast Pork Belly or Siew Yoke. Because my husband and children were drooling over the slab of roast pork when I was cutting it up, I would give them each a piece of roast pork to whet their appetites and I always love to see their eyes lit up in delight when they bit into the yummy roast pork! 😆
Do have a wonderful weekend!
With best wishes,
