Best chicken curry recipe

Chinese New Year when I was a child always meant chicken curry, cooked only by my Dad.

Dad had some friends who lived in a Malay kampung (village) and who reared chickens.

Every Chinese New Year’s Eve, his friends would visit our house with a couple of live chickens and for their trouble Dad rewarded them with a fat ang pow (red envelope of money for good luck).

Happy Chinese New Year of the Water Snake

February 10, 2013 marks the start of the Chinese year of the Water Snake.

According to ancient Chinese wisdom, a snake in the house is a good omen because it means your family will not starve.

People born in the year of the snake are intuitive, introspective, refined and calm.

Water snakes are known to be influential and insightful, motivated and determined to be successful.

They are very affectionate with their family and friends, but tend not to show their emotions to colleagues or business partners.
