Hope the world have enjoy their Christmas Celebration. I’m sharing about how did i spend my Christmas in Sabah Malaysia during the CMCO moment. After Sabah election on last year, the covid outbreak cases increase daily. However, the local government is control very well and they have done a great job. This is the time for us to spend most of our time at home relax due to travel restrictions. It is kind of a life challenge to me.
Anyway, how did i spend my Christmas in Sabah Malaysia? Christmas decoration in Malaysia is very beautiful and i believe that Christmas is not all about party nor gift nor holidays, but it is all about Jesus. Also, it is a day of Jesus born as well as it is Jesus’s birthday. Do you agree?
On 20th December, it is our celebration for winter solstice. Not everyone will celebrate the winter solstice. Only Chinese people are celebrate winter solstice and we always sending our wish to friends and families such as Happy Winter Solstice. How do we celebrate winter solstice? We definately is Rice ball.
What is Rice Ball?
According to the picture i took above, it is rice ball. Chinese is called Tang Yuan 湯圓. This is what exactly we eat during the winter solstice each year. We always eat Yam favor. It is more than a culture to celebrate this each year. Some chinese are not willing to eat rice ball, it is because they said if you eat rice ball, you will be old 1 years old. People prefer to stay younger forever, so they avoid eating rice ball. For me, i love to eat rice ball very much, especially is my Taiwan rice ball with tofu hua. That’s really delicious. Sometimes i eat the rice ball mix with red bean in Taiwan.
What did i eat during Winter Solstice and Christmas?
First dish was dry butter prawn dish. It is one of my favourite food in Malaysia. It is very crispy and taste deliciously. I had my dinner at Wong Kwok Chinese Restaurant in Suria Sabah Shopping centre. It’s cost around RM25. It is worth to try it.
This was my second dish prior to my order. This is one of the best dish what you should try it. This Called Shanghai Style Braised Pork Knuckle Served W Mini Buns. Actually this dishes is one of the Chinese New Year dishes. We eat this once in awhile. It taste very yummy and i love the sauce as well. It is very tasty and the meat is very soft. Love it and elder people would love it as well. Thus dishes come with Mini Buns. The buns is taste very delicious and very crispy. It is good to eat together with the meat. I ate this in Wong Kwok Restaurant as well and it’s cost me RM60. It is not expensive and it is very worth to try it.
Final dishes is BBQ Pork Rice Noodles. This portion is really big and it is for 2 to 3 people portion, but of course it is not as big as Western portion. Their BBQ Pork Rice noodles is really very delicious and i love fat BBQ Pork meat. Their Rice noodles is very different with Australia one. This is more than Malaysian delight style. It cost around RM13. It is best to try while visiting Malaysia.
