Now Byron closed they should think of going food on wheels.  It only way to go since so many fine food business folded due landlords.  Masa was one also landlord.  Hope Wong family think of having a food truck business with Byron foods in it .

 Melissa,

I see Sing Cheong Yuan is not sure of of her own religion for most of the Chinese are Taoists and goes to Kwan Yin Temple.  They do not bring offering to Buddhist temple.   All New Year Customs are base on Taoists not Buddhist.  Owner seem not sure of customs. 

It strange most people who born in Asia do not know own religion like my inlaws all these years thought their late mother was Buddhist but really a Taoist and hire Buddhist priest  which should been a Taoist.

Hope you visit the airport lounge of the airline you were flying.  Some airline lounges are great with buffet and all you eat snacks and drinks.  I flew China Air and had all you eat dim sum in Taipei on business class flight. Hawaiian Air also have lounge in San Francisco on first class and business class and club card holders too.

Well in San Francisco is common during CNY but not sure dim sum shops in Honolulu. It a Taishanese custom to make it.

The CNY customs are different in mainland and San Francisco is one. My cousins every year get 20.00 in their li see since they were kids. I never got that much just 1.00 token li see for good luck. My parents said too much money make a child greedy In some way true indeed. So I just save my li see money for small things and was happy.

In San Francisco they buy Quinn Branches for good luck for business or homes. Every where sell fatt gau (rice muffin ) .

A chef must his or her own style and flare in it. Any body able to cook well but not many have own way of showing it in own style, Like bakers been to so many bakeries and pretty much the same pastries but some do have own special products indeed. They are the one that stand out very much.

I have been trying to find that certain cheese called D'affinois also. It indeed not easy to find in Honolulu and would be costly. That soft and butter tasting cheese is what I like very much. I will try contact the Cheese Boutique in San Francisco if they could mail it over.

I see too many taco trucks out there no original ideal from food vendors trying copy each other, Soon customers will like other type of food out there than just taco. I for one had it with just taco trucks.. Something like noodle is good for it low cost to buy and make into many different dishes to sell yet no these vendors only of taco taco taco.

It hard eat a food item when it has a strong odor that not so likeable. I try the durian fruit but could not get pass the smell . To many people it like gasoline very strong. I try buying the durian cookie waffer in Chinatown and took it home to eat. Open it and wow what a smell again unable to pass the smell to take one bit of the waffer at all . So I dump it in trash can in kitchen and later that day the whole house smell of the durian and family thought gas leak . Funny we have electric stove no gas.

Took waffer cookie out of kitchen trash can and dump it outside trash can and open widows and spay whole house .

We are so lucky to have a great CNY Festival. San Francisco is OK but did not have that many food stalla selling foods. You could get still from dim sum shops and bakeries which there is a lot of them open late for festival. My grandparents told me of how simple it was back then in Honolulu Chinatown CNY parade was small but nice and not that fancy like it is now. Food stalls was also basic stuff they sold not like now so many great food to try out there.

Well in Ming Tsai past show on tv he was in a Chinese Restaurant kitchen. He informed viewers that chef use MSG in his cooking. That bad for many people do get ill side effects for it. It make Chinese restaurants look bad and people see all Chinese Restaurants use MSG but there many do not.
