Happy Winter Solstice Festival

Although there is no winter here in M'sia, most Chinese will still be celebrating this festival in a moderate way, and no exceptional to me as well.
Also known as Dongzhi Festival, this is the time for the family to get together, as members of the family gathers, making Tang Yuen (glutinous rice ball), a delicacy that signifies unity.
We dun usually make Tang Yuen coz no one in the home enjoying it, except myself :-)
But tis morning, Aunt Julie (our good neighbour) gave us a mug of it, full with colorful tang yuen...
There are pink, orange, white, red, but my fav color green isn't there...anyway, i m still delighted seeing all these colorful Tang Yuen and chewing them reminds me of marshmallow.
