Our first Christmas as a family of two was also our very first Christmas together in Hong Kong. I was able to get off work at 3.30 and was exhausted coming home. We decided to do a simple Hakka dinner for Christmas Eve with a mini Christmas tree at our dinner table.
Hakka Christmas Eve Dinner
JK style chilly chicken – prefer mom’s golden coloured ones
Cha Choi, Tofu and Pork
and of course….Cantonese Lai Tong
A lazy Christmas day started with family Skype session and ended with take-out from Taste and staying in and starting a new series, Game of Thrones.
Christmas Day dinner
Broccoli soup from a box
The awesome thing about Hong Kong is that we celebrate both western and eastern festivals. Really the best of East and West Will really miss this when we leave Hong Kong. For Christmas, we get 2 official public holidays – 25th for Christmas day and 26th as “Day After Christmas Day” . Even western countries don’t have 2 official bank days off!
Day after Christmas day started with brunch: Gordon Ramsay’s style scrambled eggs recommended by Leena. It was pretty easy to keep it creamy, but it ended up a bit too creamy and its actually quite a tiring method.
Very Merry Christmas.
