Chi Tuan Yuan Fan (Reunion Dinner)

Today, the Chinese all over the world will have reunion dinner. It is a tradition still practised today. This is a good tradition because it brings all members of a family together.

I still remember how I travelled all the way from Pahang to Penang just to be in time for this great occasion when I was teaching there. Although we had to rush back two days later, we still felt it right to be with our family on this day - the Chinese New Eve.

Usually, steamboat dinner is the choice of most families as it is suitable and easy to prepare. We just dump whatever we like into boiling water in a bowl placed on a hot plate and enjoy ourselves partaking of what we fancy.
