Christmas Eve dinner

Its been a long time, we were very busy to entertain relatives and friends during Christmas season. The first visitor was sister-in-law from Johore Bahru, followed by friends from Medan, KL and my daughter and her husband flew back from Melbourne from 4th to 30th Dec. We have been eating too much from restaurant, we decided to have a change for Christmas reunion dinner.  We had home cook steamboat at home.
It was very easy then, just have to prepare the soup and all the raw materials for cooking when eating.

Ingredients for the soup.

2 lt water
10 pce of red dates
1 big onion
1 Chinese yam
2 carrots
5 tomatoes
200 g chicken bones
300 g prot cones
4 dried mushroom
Boil the water, then add in all the ingredients use slow fire boil for one hour, add salt to taste.
We bought fish and meat balls, few types of vegetables, prawns, deep sea crabs, fishes, noodles, eggs, chicken and pork slices and others.

See the table is full of food.

We really enjoyed our steamboat rather then every year the turkey dinner.
My children were so sweet , they bought me a new hand phone as my Christmas gift.
