CNY: Dragon boat races

The final event on Sydney's Chinese New Year festivity calendar... dragon boat races on Sydney's Darling Harbour.

Vendor making hand-made eggrolls. First time I've seen this--very impressive!

    mmmm, egg rolls.

    i have a craving now.

    i think my uncle serving me 'love letters' during chinese new year visiting sparked off the craving for flaky, biscuitty, eggy.

    Hi AG,

    Love the pictures. They are wonderful. I sent you an e-mail earlier, I hope you got it. It was a late response to one of the e-mails you sent me earlier. Sorry! =(

    By the way, I've never seen anyone roll spring rolls like that before. Looks cool. When I was in Singapore, I got to witness a lady making poh piah, which was equally fun! And best of all, I got to eat the finished product! =P

    If you've never had "love letters" they are a Nonya crispy cookie (?) that's rolled. It's very thin and light. In Wena's post here, it's the second picture from the top.


    I could probably eat a hundred of them at one sitting (but I didn't)! =)

    hiya AG
    The egg rolls machine looks cool! I have never actually seen egg rolls in making. Now I am craving for kuih sapit (love letters)! It's another CNY delicacy in South East Asia!
