Although the five-person limit will still be in place during the upcoming Chinese New Year season, it certainly has not dampened the CNY spirit.
Of course, an essential part of CNY is the reunion dinner. Though many of us may not be able to gather in large groups at restaurants, there is still the option of having up to five visitors per household for reunion dinner at home.
However, most of us might be wondering the same thing: Walao, damn sian, I don’t want to clean up after spending an entire afternoon in the kitchen cooking.
Well, that’s where food delivery comes to the rescue. After all, what’s better than an entire night of good food and not needing to do the dishes?
