Chinese New Year means a time to relive childhood memories.
This yum cha restaurant is unassuming to unsuspecting passersby. It is not the best in Ipoh, where I grew up, nor the closest to our home. But it is a family favourite.
It is as if it was yesterday that my father, sister and I were having breakfast here several times a week, before dropping my sister off at her school. Then it would be my turn after travelling all the way to another part of the town. This routine lasted for a few years until my sister got her driving license at the age of 17.
The restaurant has not changed much over the years. And every time we return, the familiar faces of the workers at this restaurant bring warmth to my heart and a smile to my face.
And this concludes this Chinese New Year series, which I hope you have enjoyed reading. I am still overseas at the moment but let's take a trip to New Zealand from tomorrow.
