A backdated event on Winter Solstice Celebration (Koh tung)

I've been hearing this saying "Koh Tung is even more important to most Chinese compared to Chinese New Year which is only a symbolic new year". I'm sure most of you know the significance of Koh tung and I shall not elborate here.

Just cant resist putting up this post as it was a memorable occasion not just Koh Tung (Winter solstice celebration) but also my sister's eve of her marriage (chut moon).

We had many guests coming over to my mom's house for the wedding eve night (eating "chow fun" (fried noodles) night). Mom catered food with several dishes, desserts & drinks.

All her grandchildren gathered to help her make Thong yuen(the glutinous rice ball in syrup). This is the most joyous "Koh tung" we ever had with multicoloured Thong Yuen as you can see in these pics.

OOps forgot to take pics of the cooked thong yuen.

Anyway Happy Belated Winter Solstice Celebration to all of you!
