On New Year day, I'd gone home to celebrate with my family.
We had hotpot & dumplings :)
Hotpot is simple to prepare but it's absolutely tasty, also very enjoyable with family & friends.
On new year's eve, I didn't go out for countdown but baked a simple yet delicious chocolate whipped cream cake.
I brought that home for desserts after the meal but my sister also made two delicious cakes.
I took the chances to take some photographs & also to practice the skill of using flash indoors.
