It's that Fat Choy time again...

The Chinese New Year, Lunar New Year or Spring Festival two week-long celebration officially started on February 12th, 2021. The year of the Ox.
In the Southern regions of China where they speak Cantonese it's spelled and pronounced "Gung Hay Fat Choy" Translation to English is "Congratulations on making money"

Yesterday, I had a taste of pork, bean and sweet rice that's cooked in a wrap of Banana leaves.

This marks the 2nd year I'm unable to travel to China to witness this celebration first-hand.
Perhaps next year will be better.

They're call zongzi, sticky rice. There are usually also 'hei zhi ma tang yuan', black sesame paste wrapped in sticky rice (nuo mi fan) served in a weak warm syrup. I can eat one tops, but they commonly have a bowl of five.

I've read the neighboring countries also share the same holiday and foods.
... including Australia!
