CNY Festive Dish - ' Ju Hu Char '

Strange....I normally would not cook this dish even if WB beg me to cook for him...but I DID agree to cook this time when he begged LOL!  He said " we went to Bali for CNY so I miss this dish "  I replied " okay, no problem " hahaha I could not take back my words...once out of the mouth, I have to keep to my word and cook this festive dish for him.  Even my daughter was surprised when I told her I cooked this dish..... that she just have to post on her facebook :)  knowing me so well...okay people can changed alright!
