On a totally irrelevant part, I just got to know what 'Dōngzhì' (冬至) Festival is and to my understanding, I know it as 'tong yuen' (Glutinous balls) day. So for this year 2010 Winter Solstice Festival, we hand made the balls as we did last time.
More colour variety this time =)
We had green dough too!
Cut the pandan leaves, then grind it using the grinder, find the strongest person in the house to squeeze the juice out of em', filter the juice to get a pure green liquid and voila! green dough without preservative or artificial colouring =D
Everyone working hard
In the process of rolling the balls =)
With many weird shapes coming out..
Hearts, Dices, Mushroom, Pizza, etc. etc.
And we boiled ginger pandan soup to go with the tong-yuens
