Winter Solstice Festival

Dong Zhi (冬至) or Winter Solstice Festival is here again!
It falls on December 22, where the sunshine is at its weakest and the daylight shortest.

Like many ancient Chinese people, my Mama also emphasizes the importance of winter solstice as big as Chinese New Year. That's why we make this round flour ball called Tang Yuan (汤圆).

Colouring and sugar are added :)

But one thing that I didn't like is, some people love to add ginger into the tang yuan soup until it becomes extremely spicy =/

Mama actually made me this on Sundae, coz' I am not at home on 22nd.
Hmm.. Now I understand how people feel when they're away from home during festive seasons :(

And this is my project during the weekend.
Apparently it failed to the maxxx! Due to the ugly shaping and colouring = ="

Finally..
Dear Chinese friends,
"冬至节快乐" & "Happy Winter Solstice Festival"!!!
