 Volgens de Chinese kalender is het jaar 4714 voorbij en begint vandaag officieel het jaar 4715 en dat betekent gelukkig Chinees Nieuw Jaar allemaal! Dit jaar is ook het jaar van de Haan. Vandaag heb ik het klein beetje gevierd, kijk maar gauw hieronder!

Wearing my Chinese! I feel like I`m wearing the `ugly granny sweater` but then in qipao version which I totally love!
tang yuan/tong yun/汤圆
Tang yuan/tong yun/汤圆 are generally celebration food in the Chinese culture and are sweet sticky rice dough in syrup, really delicious! I used to make them a lot with my mum in my childhood and it sure brought up some memories while I was making a batch of tang yuan this CNY. I sure miss my mum.
Special days means a filled tang yuan with black sesame filling.
So good!
(recipe soon!)

  6. Yes! My mother made some peanut ones but they are premade and we make our own sweet soup for it! I love mine with ginger soup!

  8. Hello! Thanks for stopping by my blog. I love yours!!! Tong Yun is one of my favourites as well. I live at home so my mum sometimes still makes them! I love the sesame flavour the best but peanut is pretty good too. Happy CNY gorgeous!
    Have a Stylin' Day!
    Much Love, Karen
