Last year when we got back to Taiping, we had steamboat for our reunion dinner. Jordan was only a few months old then, so he could only watch us devouring our food in front of the hotpot. One year later, this year, things have changed. Jordan is no longer a little baby. He is now a toddler who can walk and run...and more importantly Jordan boy is big enough to eat
almost all the food that we are eating. :) That is why he joined us the other day on our feeding frenzy. I am sure he enjoyed it a lot [look at the last photo in this post].
Every meal must have vegetable. :D
And some drinks. :D
They say steamboating is all about...well...food...tonnes of food. We didn't have tonnes of food on that day...but still more than enough for all of us. In fact we did have a hard time trying to finish up everything on the table. We needed hours to gobble up all the food. Buuurrppp...I thought we ate too much. Then again...don't we always end up eating too much during steamboats?
Grandpa was of course very ecstatic at the fact that Jordan boy could join us at the dining table. Jordan boy got so sit next to grandpa and had the luxury of being fed by grandpa himself. Ha :D It was so merry. The hot boiling soup, the scrumptious food, our non-stop chatters...aww...this mini family reunion dinner of ours is so merry and not to mention heart-warming. I did pause for a while and look at everyone...it is so priceless.
Jordan joined us. :)
Getting-together time like this is hard to come by for us as I am living in the Southern part of Malaysia while my wife's hometown is North-bound. So we will always cherish our homecoming and made the best out of it each time we go back home. And enjoying food together such as steamboating is definitely a good way for us to treasure our time together better. Don't you think so? So when will be Jasmine's turn to munch on fish ball? :)
