Hiking and Poke Bowl with Becca!
Went with my parents last night to FuruSato Sushi in Campbell. Look how thick those sashimi slices are! On the right is hamachi carpaccio – soo good!
So unique. At Furusato Sushi in Campbell.
Went to try Sushi Tomi in Mountain View with Joanna, Eddie and their friend Carey.
Not cheap, but worth the wait for the experience.
Dinner at Kikusushi with my parents… :)
Mabel brought by some practice balloon art. A flower and… a monkey?
It’s the Lunar New Year, and to welcome the upcoming year my family (which includes Henning and his mom) had a New Years Eve feast!
It is generally traditional to eat certain specific foods at the New Year, because they sound like or rhyme with auspicious words in Chinese. For example, we say “Gung hay fat choy” (恭喜發財) in Cantonese, which roughly translates to “Congratulations and be prosperous.” So we also eat a black algae at the new year called “fat choy” (different characters, same sound) in order to bring prosperity. :)
Likewise, we usually eat fish (魚yú) because it sounds like the Chinese word for “surpluses” (餘yú).
It looks scary, but we steam our fish (with ginger and scallions) and serve it whole. That way you know it’s fresh!
Even Henning (who doesn’t like seafood) admitted it tasted good. :)
