Happy Lunar New Year! Gong Xi Fa Cai! Its the Year of the Goat /Sheep / Ram! This actually my year. I was born on the year of the goat. My Chinese-Malay friend told me that I have to be careful if its my year because bad things can happen to me or I will get very sickly. I did noticed myself getting very sickly the first few months of this year but then again that was still the year of the horse. Well, it helps that I don’t believe in predictions but rather make my own destiny as I go.
For the year of the goat/sheep/ram, I have collected my five goat-y picks for the year of the goat:
1. RECIPE: KALDERETA
This is goat’s stew. Check recipe here. This is delicious if it is done right.

3. SIDE DISH: GOAT CHEESE AND CHIVED MASHED POTATOES

4. DIY: GOAT’S MILK SOAP
I been wanting to try making homemade soaps. Here are the instructions. Let’s try to make together, shall we?
5. SYMBOLISM: LOST SHEEP
I like the symbolism of us as lost sheep and that Jesus is there for us, our shepherd who will come look for us when we get lost.
Hope we all have a great sheep-y year! Meeeeee! Meeeeeee!
