21.12.2008 | 冬至快樂

又係一年一度冬至日, 今年都有收到幾個朋友send嘅祝賀短訊, 好窩心.. 我哋每年都會秉承傳統, 屋企會自己搓湯圓, 老人家話食過湯圓就長大一歲, 而且幾多歲就要食幾多粒湯圓.. 嘩, 我驚啊, 因為華人歲數要加一, 冬至大一歲又再加一, 咁我碗湯圓咪豈不是成座山咁高?? {=_=}"

不過今年冇食到湯圓, 因為週末兩日都掛住「爛」街, 係唔係唔駛老多歲啊咁?? 呵呵.. 喂, 唔係喎, 醒起去超市嗰陣貪小便宜, 試食咗件紅豆沙湯圓添!! 之後覺得非常好味, 再厚住面皮行返去整多件黑芝麻餡嘅添!! 嘩哈哈哈哈, 小師奶貪小便宜, 食過返尋味啊.. :p

祝大家冬至快樂啦~~it's winter solstice again, and i have received a few SMS from friends wishing me dong zhi kuai le, kind of sweet of them.. it's a chinese tradition to have tang yuan (glutinous rice balls cooked in sweet clear soup) for this festive, and according to the seniors eating the tang yuan symbolises that you are another year grown-up, also you eat as much tang yuan as your age counts.. kind of scary for me, because the way chinese calculate age is one more year older, plus another year older for this solstice, means i will have a "mountainful" heap of tang yuan in my bowl.. {=_=}"

anyway i didn't manage to had any tang yuan this year, because was busy hanging out with friends over the weekend, so does that mean i don't have to grow up another year older?? hehe.. wait, i recall, i recall having some tang yuan sampling in the supermarket, like taking little advantages from the sampling stalls i tried the red bean paste tang yuan!! that was quite nice indeed, and i didn't feel embarras to return back and had another helping of the black sesame paste tang yuan, haha!! oh my, i was just so cheapskate~~

anyway, happy winter solstice dong zhi kuai le to everyone..
