DADDY YANKEE: "Dale Caliente"

It’s funny how food plays a role in the feeling of coming home after a holiday. Eating a local dish is like part of a ritual to celebrate the return to one’s usual environment after spending some time away. Almost like a dog sniffing on a tree to mark his territory, I inhaled the smell of some good old hokkien mee at Newton and devoured it with all my senses. For the first time this year, I heard the “gong xi fa cai” tune on the background. Another new year’s celebration is coming up already.
