Chinese new year and other things

 For those who didn't know, last Monday was the first day of the chinese new year. We got together with some other chinese background-ed folks to have a hotpot meal, above which consists of various types of meat, tofu, vegetables and noodles cooked in a broth at the table and eaten as they cook. I love those processed meatballs, octopus balls and fishballs. [which you can only get at asian grocery shops] of course we always end up preparing too much food. we had just 7 people but bought enough food for double that!
 This isn't food related but I just thought Socks looked so crisp and smart next to the laptop one day.
at the office barbie - lots of saturated fat and cholesterol i'm afraid!

Some pan fried squid and flathead fillets that were dredged in a seasoned flour- yummy!

oh and Happy Australia day!
