When dong zhi, arrives, the main thing that should not be left out is definitely the glutinous rice balls known as tang yuen, especially the red and white ones. It signifies that one has grown a year older and this festival also emphasise on family unity.
I was making balls of tang yuen from the dough when I’m still groggy this morning. Because that’s the part where I’m always looking forward too, there is no excuse for me to be asleep.
After some simple steps and offering it to God, I shall be prepared to savour it although it is not some mouthwatering lamb shank. Anyway, it’s once in a year only..
