Chinese Festival: Winter Solstice Festival 冬至

We had been celebrating 'Dong Zhi' (冬至) for years and to be frank, I don't what we call this festival in English until today, Winter Solstice Festival. This festival normally falls towards the end of the year (between Dec 21 - 23), and this year, the Winter Solstice Festival falls on 22 Dec 2007

This is known to be the most important festival for Chinese before Chinese New Years in. How we celebrate the festival since it is so important? Today is the day where most of the family members will gather together to have a short gathering to celebrate the good year they had spend.

Of course we can't forget about 'Tang Yuan'. This is a must have dessert among all the Chinese family. I wonder if the rest of the family having the same way like I do. We need to have same quantity of 'Tang Yuan' as our age. Like I am 29 years old and next year will be 30. So I need to have 30 'Tang Yuan'... :P

Here are some explanation I am to obtain from Malaysia Page Blog about the Tang Yuan.

Tang Yuan, ( 汤圆 in mandarin ), also called glutinous rice balls or also commonly known as ‘kuih ee, is one of the Chinese delicacy, which is made by mixing glutinous rice flour with a small amount of water and form into round balls and is then cooked in boiling water and normally served in syrup water. It is very common among the Chinese community in Malaysia during festival season, especially on the Dong Zhi a.k.a Winter Solstice Festival.

There are several methods of preparing Tang Yuan. Tang Yuan can be unfilled or filled; fillings could include red bean paste, chopped peanuts and sugar, sesame paste, rock sugar, etc. Normally people will serve their Tang Yuan with hot ginger syrup, pandan-flavoured syrup or soya bean milk. Those with more time will make the tang yuan themselves, but now, the glutinous rice balls are also sold in supermarkets...quoted from the Malaysia Page Blog

I never thought they would be any story behind this festival until I read the below blog. Wonder if it is true, but this is a interesting sharing though.

There’s a story behind the tradition of eating Tang Yuan among the Chinese. According to history, legend claims that in Ancient China, a poor family caught a fish to celebrate Dong Zhi but in her haste to eat it, a fish bone was stuck at the mother’s throat causing her discomfort. A beggar approached them for food and the daughter gave the fish as that was the only food they had. Seeing the mother’s discomfort, the beggar gave her lumps of dough which she swallowed and got rid of the fish bone. After hearing this, the villagers believe that eating Tang Yuan will help ward off bad luck and that tradition has persisted till modern day....quoted from the Malaysia Page Blog

We hope most of us can hold this tradition and pass it through next generation as this is a very meaningful festival.

To them, Tang Yuan is a symbolic of family reunion, the roundness of the Tang Yuan signifying a complete circle of harmony, unity and prosperity within the family. Nonetheless, it is indeed the thoughts of being together with the family members in celebration of festival season that really matters...quoted from the Malaysia Page Blog

Restaurant: Thai Food - Cherry Blossom

Cherry Blossom is one of the restaurant situated at Sungai Ara. This is one of our favourite Thai Cuisine restaurant as it located near to our working place, Bayan Lepas.

This restaurant is favourite place for most of the workers for welcoming lunch, or farewell lunch. What make this restaurant so special? The main reason is they didn't serve pork in the restaurant and it is good gathering place for all races.

They serve good Thai cuisine, Meng Kam, Otak-otak, Prawn Fried in Special Thai Sauce, Fried Kangkung and Pucha are some of our favourite dishes.

Meng Kam is one of the of the famous stater. It serve with these little bowls of chilies, garlic, onions, nuts, etc. How to have it? First you get one leaf and fold it in cone shape, then all you need to do is to mix them altogether (depends on your favors) into it and apply some special paste on top of that.

After you done with the paste, fold it properly and put the whole piece into the mouth... That simple... and special... You will have multiple type of taste fighting each other in the mouth; sour, sweet, bitter, spicy.. all in one. Amazing experience as the stater.

Penang Event: Chingay Competition 2007

Dear readers,

You might had wonder what is 'Chingay'? I manage to look for some information about the sport online and here you are. It is a performance of giant flag balancing.

In Chinese dialect Hokkien "Chin Yi" or "Chin Gay" which means real art or true art.

This real art or true art is skillfully displayed by using the flag pole (Bamboo pole) and the flag pole ranges from 25 ft to 32 ft, the length of the flag is around 25ft, made from silk and the total weight of these materials is around 60 pounds.

The Chingay Procession were started about 100 years ago with 1st parade in 1919 in "Penang"....

The "Chingay" is a spectacular procession. The Bamboo pole carried perpendicularly by a steward bearer or performers with half-a-dozen others taking turn. The steward bearer/performers will normally balance huge poles with enormous triangular flags, on their forehands,chin,lower jaws and shoulders.

.........quoted from squidoo sports.

This competition is organized by Penang State Chingay Council prior to the annual parade that taken place 2 days later. This competition is held at City Hall, Penang as an annual event at Penang.

Date: 23th December 2007
Time: n/a
Venue: City Hall, Penang

For more information please contact En Bong Kui Chin (012-4319799)

The competition is to to select the six best teams to represent Malaysia at various events worldwide. Participants will try their best to show their skills to the judges in order to win the competition. They will try to show different and complicated stunt on balancing the giant flag during the competition. Those action might not be seen during the parade. It is going to be an exciting event.

Can you imagine how the participants can hold 60 pounds of flag using their jaws? Passing the flag around using their shoulder and fore head? Can you imagine that?

This is an annual event, which mean if you miss it, you need to wait until next year. 365 days to wait for it. So if you never seen that before or wanted to experience how exciting the event is, come and join us for the event.

Dear readers,

Had you ever stuck in the department store hunting for your bedding equipment? Especially who bought it for their wedding. I had recently got married and I feel it badly of how difficult to get the suitable bedding.

We went to one after another department store to get what we want. It is very troublesome. I believe some of you might have same experience like me, right?

What I am gong to share with you is, that I wish I found out earlier. Vision Bedding had variety choice of bedding with different themes such as Heart Bedding, Soccer Bedding, Motocross Bedding, Artistic Bedding and much more.

Useful Sharing: PayPerPost - Solve my fund Constraint

Dear readers,

As most of you might had read about the announcement where most of the volunteers had quit this program. I had been wondered if I should continue what I had done so far.

I am lost. Why I started this on the first place? What is our mission? After reading back the about welovepenang, it helps me to find my way back to our mission. Even though most of the pioneers no longer with me, I would keep on doing this for all of you.

But I am facing constraint on resources to update this blog with latest information. In order to solve all this, I need to look for more volunteers. But it doesn't seem to be working after several attempt of trying.

After having a short discussion with my friend, he suggested to reward person who provide the latest information about event and food with some incentive. It may help to obtain more information to share with all of you. Even though I prefer more on voluntary, but at least it would help for current situation while waiting for volunteers.

But the current operation strategy is more to non-profit voluntary system, which mean I don't have any fund allocated for this.

Another friend of mine, Dragon suggested looking for PayPerPost, getting paid to blog. He gave me brief explanation and some real life sharing; I decided to go for it to understand more on how it works and how it could help me to solve my fund constraint.

PayPerPost is providing a platform to connect between advertiser and blogger. Advertiser will provide opportunity for blogger to write a review about their products, web site or service while blogger get paid for writing it. Advertiser is looking for blog advertising while blogger is looking for making money by blogging. Sounds fair, right?

Furthermore, you can choose the topic that related to your site to share with your readers. It will help to increase the content with relevant review that matching your blogs content.

PayPerPost sounds perfectly matched my needs. I can bring more information and content to my reader and getting paid to it. I love it. I can continue with my mission without worrying about the fund to sustain this blog.

If you facing same situation like me, I will recommend you to go for the PayPerPost. It helps.

If you want to blog for money, what are you waiting for, click on the bar below and start your journey of making money now. Thanks.
