22 December – Mother’s day and Having Tangyuan

For everyone’s comfort, maybe I should start to write in English. First of all, please forgive the grammatical errors.. πŸ™‚
Now I will write about 22nd December. In Indonesia particularly, 22nd December is celebrated as Mother’s day. The only day of the year that is dedicated to all the mothers..
While for the Chinese, 22nd December often celebrated as Winter Festival/Dong Zhi.
Dong Zhi is usually celebrated by having Tangyuan.
Maybe some of you are confused about what is Tangyuan, well it’s a traditional chinese food made from glutinous rice flour that is formed into balls and served in a kind of soup (can be sugar water or ginger water). It can be filled with peanut, fruit pasta, or else. In Indonesia is called onde-onde or ronde.
As a Chinese descent Indonesian, 22nd December for me is all about eating Tangyuan. My family make and eat it every year as a tradition. Here is the picture from this year πŸ˜‰
It’s look delicious, isn’t it? πŸ˜€
I personally like this food, especially the one with the peanut filling and sugar water.. Yummy..
In Indonesia you can find it anywhere from roadside to mall. It has been modernized with varieties of filling. In Bandung especially it can be found at Gardujati area..

You should try some.. ^^
