Full Month Celebration 弥月之喜 @ 民众酒家 Mun Choong Restaurant, Pasir Puteh

Foodie again! The nature of a true Ipoh Boy! Without good food, how am I gonna survive. This time around, the post is slightly overdue but it is definitely worth mentioning! My dearest sister gave birth to my niece and my dad threw her and her daughter a full month celebration (also known as 弥月之喜) at 民众酒家 Mun Choong Restaurant, Pasir Puteh. Pusing Mun Choong was notably mentioned here - [1] & [2]

Traditionally, Chinese would celebrate the full month as a blessing to both the mom and the child. Red boiled eggs (红鸡蛋) is to celebrate the birth of the baby and to wish her celebrating her birthday every year. Obviously, the marinated ginger slice (姜片) and the red wine (红酒) are for the moms, so that after giving birth, they can recover well.
