Chinese New Year 2013

Chinese people like color of red, in Chinese culture Red usually means good and blessing.  Just like the red packet (Ang Pao) which is given every Chinese New Year, to wish the younger having the good one in coming year.   

Two more weeks Chinese New Year is approaching, I decorate my lovely home with red packet, making 3D fishes.  Wish everyone 年年有余! 

The tutorial of making CNY 3D fishes:

Draw the shape of fish body on the red packet and cut them out

And cut two fish tails 

Stapled the fish's body and the tails together

3D fishes are come alive on the wall of my lovely home to celebrate CNY with us together!

Rosemary Spaghetti

Every Friday's supper, I would like to prepare something simple but special for my hubby.  To thank him for a long week work.  Today, I am going to play with the recipe, I changed the traditional Italian tomato spaghetti into Rosemary Spaghetti!
