Happy Chinese New Year : Welcoming Year of The Horse

This year CNY was very low key. Even the new year's eve feast was only a 1 pot fits all hotpot dish. Normally following my family tradition I would make steam fish with shitake, hamchoy and ginger with a dish of stir fry Chinese leeks with fish maw. But this year both me and hubby are both suffering cough which started just the weekend before the new year. I really don't feel like making or doing anything. Beside with the lingering cough I was avoiding a lot of items which could either prolong or make the cough worse. Argh... :(

The horse platter of steam chicken shown below was posted by a friend. Very cute dish. It would be a shame to eat it.
