冬至

We know that glutinous rice ball can be eaten for certain ocassion for the chinese. It is either the "dong zhi" seasons or it was made for the wedding. Today, 21st December 2008 is once again 冬至. For me, who was not around at home have to made 汤圆 myself. It is not hard because I had made it every year since I came over KL to study. It is indeed a nice experience because you learn to be independent and make yourself a warm seasonal day instead of feeling so far away from home.


Apart from Chinese New Year, 冬至 is one the greatest event too. Family will gather around meaning members will be united and union if have been aparted. I am always proud of my own culture because behind every celebration of our festival there is sure some history out of it. This is also a sign of chinese new year that is just around the corner. After eating glutinous rice ball we are one year elder. This is what the elderly told the younger. It was great to have this culture to pass down from one generation to another.




I had mention I made Gltinous Rice Ball myself so I wish to show you all how I make it.
This had taken me days to upload and now early AM I uploading picture which is better than I do on ordinary time. Here we GO!!

1. Ready the Tepung Pulut
2. Roll the flour into dough by adding water slowly. If you want your rice ball to be soft add cool water. If you want them to be bit hard add warm water.

3. Then roll into round shape
4. Cook it after finish rolling
5. When the rica bell float means it is cooked
5. Put it into a bowl of cool water to avoid them to be sticky
6. Next, you have to cook the sweeten soup ( sugar and pandan leaves is a must)
7. Put it into the sweeten soup when it is done and now it is ready to be served!!!

My classmates leaving not far away did make some from me too. And this is new flavor that I had never tried before.
CHOCOLATE

A special day indeed this year. Trying new things and having people to satisfy with it!!!
