Chinese New Year Gifts From Family And Friends

Two days ago, I received a text message from a family member informing me to expect a parcel which will be delivered to my house. 
Sure enough, I received the parcel. Inside the parcel, I found four different packs of bird's nest products.
Each pack contains 6 bottles.
This morning, I received another parcel with the above items. This is also from a family member.
There are 5 different packs in the gift box.
Yesterday morning, I received 4 curry puffs and a box of chocolate brownie from Friend A.
Frozen boneless waxed smoked duck from Friend A.
The above 3 items also from Friend A.
Homemade honeycomb cake from my neighbour.
Chinese sausages, mushrooms and 1 can of abalone from neighbour.
Nuts and 2 cans of abalone from Friend B. 
I bought 1 container of love letters (on the left) and fried arrowhead chips (nyaku) about 2 kg (on the right).
My homemade Bak Kwa from 1 kg of minced pork.

Today is Chinese New Year Eve or the Lunar New Year Eve and family members are supposed to gather for the reunion dinner this evening. Due to the lockdown, many will not be able to join their family for the reunion dinner.

  6. I like the choc brownie the most. Felt like eating it when looking at your photo. Is the waxed duck a local product or import from China?

    1. Thank you, Mun. Oops! Sorry, there is a mistake. I type waxed instead of smoked duck. This product is from China. I haven't tasted it but my friend told me that this is tastier than the local smoked duck.

  18. Happy Lunar New Year to you and your husband. I like wolfberries in the Ningxia I get from Young Living. Interesting flavor. I have friends that were in China and they have eaten the wolfberries and like them. You food looks delicious. I need to get a whole chicken out of freezer and cook it in my instant pot. This Sat would be a good time to do it. Enjoy your gifts and holiday!!! Becky🍰
