My favourite time of year to visit Singapore, my home, is Chinese New Year. It's incredibly heartwarming, being with family as we prepare the house and ourselves for the festive season, and wonderful to see my extended family come together, as we do, for endless gatherings, laughs for days on end, and meals. Yes, the meals.
At Chinese New Year, I get the added bonus of NOT ONLY my beautiful family cooking me the foods I am most passionate about, but also some of my favourite Singapore foods being in season (Chinese New Year goodies).
It's a decadent time of year, with parties, gluttony and celebrating being the main goal for a few days straight.
And the ultimate joy?
Starting each morning with a selection of totally sinful Chinese New Year treats like pineapple tarts and the such, with a huge cup of milo, lounging in the huge king sized bed next to my sister as we sip, imbibe, and surf the net. Simple pleasures.
