Almond is nice.

Alicia said...

o.o cashew and pistachio.. we normally dun have it for new yr.. :/ but we do have it for other days

Pandabonium said...

Nuts are a weakness of mine. Healthy in moderation, but Once I start eating them, they are soon gone.

If forced to pick just one, I'd say cashews. But I want them all.

Chen said...

yvy,
another garam lover :P

alicia,
most people will have groundnuts and kuaci for CNY :)

pandabonium,
just like eating pringles ?
once u start, u cannot stop ;)

fish fish said...

Chen said...

fish fish,
home-cooked food is always the best ;)

Furkids In Hong Kong said...

Sigh, how dare you put pics of my favourite nuts (pistachios and cashews)up to tease me, especially when we've got none at home. :(

Must run now downstairs to get some.

Later!

Cynthia said...

yeah.. i like walnut carrot cake.. yum yum~! love eating the brains! LOL

Chen said...

Furkids in HK,
oops... So I presume u bought some already by now? :P

Cynthia,
like the old Chinese sayings; drinking "pig brain soup" will make us more brainy..
so I presume eating walnut will make us brainy as well, since walnut has the shape of the brain hemisphere, hahah...

tom said...

Definitively pistachio are my favorite ones, 2 of them i havent ever tried which are wasabi green peas and cashew nuts :) looks nice tho.

Chen said...

tom,
the wasabi green peas is very 'hot' :)
those who loves hot & spicy food will love the wasabi green peas :)

tom said...

wah.. i must try it then. i know what wassabi is tho. considered as the hottest spice ever. i havent ever tried wassabi nor those green peas ><
from hot stuffs all i had was tabasco, chili sauce. they were very hot to me in the begining but after some time my tongue got accustomed to those, and now its just numb when i eat those :) still brings pleasure tho.

Chen said...

tom,
yeah, it is worth trying :)
hot stuffs are nice.
