Tristan and Kaka’s 1st Christmas

It was a very hot (as usual) and peaceful Christmas.

Simple Chinese homecooking for Christmas dinner. This crispy skinned salmon was mostly for Jo since she’s in confinement and can’t eat much seafood excpt for fish.

Ba zhen (eight precious) herbal duck soup, asparagus, tofu and chinese roast pork.

Jo was in the hospital during the dong zhi (Winter solstice) festival so we couldn’t have the traditional tang yuen. So we had tang yuen for our Christmas dessert instead haha, better late than never.

Christmas was extra special this year because we have two new additions to the family. Sleepy baby tristan was unable to join in most of the festivities but Jo and HC brought him out for a car ride to see the Christmas lights after diner.


A thousand miles away, the most adorable Santarina Kaka is enjoying her very first Christmas. Did you notice her new Peppa pig riding on her rocking horse? She is already so much bigger since the last time we saw her in September.  I can’t wait to see and play with her again during Chinese New Year. Bring on 2013 🙂
