Sweet sticky rice ball (汤圆, tangyuan), with lotus, mung bean, coconut and osmanthus paste filling. I used this filling for a bit symbolism as each of the ingredients represents a season.
Sammy’s and my hometown’s tradition crosses path once again. In his hometown #shanxi , tangyuan is served in Lantern Festival, which marks the end of Chinese New Year period, to remind family members of family bonding before everyone leaves for work/study
In my hometown #hoian , in this occasion, everyone becomes vegan and go to Buddhist temple to worship the Buddha of Medicine. Lanterns were lit, sky lanterns were floating mid air, and sandalwood incense was burnt across my little town. It was indeed a splendid and tranquil scene to behold
