  • love homecooked food on chinese new year! Always gain like 5kgs cos there is so much food. Have a great year of the rat 2020! Gung he fat choi!!

  • Btw, dumplings may be the must food on new eve night > the Chinese from/in the northern regions in China / Shanghai, but not as for the southern Chinese

  • The Middle East and a ton of South and Central Asia celebrate the lunar New year according to the Islamic Calendar. They are Asians too so I regret not seeing them here

  • it’s Zheng Yu(steam fish) not Jing Yu(that’s gold fish in mandarin…) y’all might wanna consider correcting it or I’m more than happy to come help with Chinese any time y’all need it

  • OMG whyisthis alley you walkingthu is so drk? no street lights? looks not too safe! one can get mugged or robbed or worse raped and murdered if this was in america! esp foryoungsingle ladies govt needto improve the stuation before someting really bad happened then its too little too late sydney govt shud learn fom singapore about public safety!

  • Happy Lunar New Year, Janice! I was there too on New Year’s day, but thought the lion dance was at 1 PM. How crowded was Chinatown that day right?!

  • wish Tasty would do a thorough research on truly special authentic CNY foods that are only eaten during these 15 days, instead of just ordinary every day chinese dishes

  • Some corrections/tips for steamed fish:
    1. fish = 魚 doesn’t sound like prosperity exactly. It sounds like 餘 which means leftover/extra/abundance. Hence ppl usually call any fish dish 年年有餘 (= having extra every year = prosperity) around new year.
    2. Fish needs to be FRESH. Fresh ingredients are always great but if you have a fresh fish you might not even need the ginger (mostly to remove fishy smell).
    3. If you have a transparent lid, traditional trick to see if the fish is cooked is the eyes. If it’s cooked the eye will turn white and pop out (as in video). They say you should steam it in one go or the fish will be ruined so this helps w not opening the lid a million times to poke it.
    4. Traditionally the point of the dish is how soft the flesh is, so it’s barely cooked where the middle of the fish would almost stick to the bones. But depends on your preference.
    5. Putting a pair of chopsticks under the fish (across it) helps it steam more evenly. I imagine it’s especially important if you like it barely cooked like me lol If you have a fat fish you can give it a cut along the back and/or stomach too.
    6. If you’re lazy there is soy sauce for steaming fish you can buy, but ofc it’s more customizable if you make your own.
    7. There’s flesh in the fish’s cheek which is like the softest part of the fish! Ppl fight for that stuff:P

    Steamed fish is like my favourite dish so I just wanted to share what I know. ^^” Thank you Tasty for featuring some Chinese recipes. Happy lunar new year!

  • I didn’t know about that red piece of clothing thing, I’m going to try when my zodiac sign year arrives I won’t deny a bit of luck haha

  • Dear Buzzfeed, not only Chinese celebrate Lunar NY. How about some Korean or Vietnamese recipe cause like you know, they celebrate it too???????

  • Please dont feel guilty When you said happy Chinese new year not Luna new year. Lunar New Year celebrations are based on the traditional Chinese lunisolar calendar. You can tell from this that the country where the most people judge you about that ,Those country must used to be the dependent countries of China in the history. and some countries don’t judge you but also celebrate luna new year, They must be the countries with more Chinese migration. The countries that only a small number of people judge you,because they
    nfluenced by China. So Don’t
    be afraid to say happy Chinese new year. You said to all the 1.4 billion Chinese,and Chinese immigrants. Ignore them. Suppose an American says Happy Independence Day, and the British commented that you should call out of the British Festival. You will find it funny

  • Since so many people misunderstand the new year I will explain it. Lunar new year is a traditional Chinese New Year which is based on the moon. It meant a lot a lot to Chineses just like Christmas to christians. On the new year, no matter what everyone in your family will get together and celebrate it. But now, some other countries claims that it is their “own” new year which disgust a lot Chinese people. We are fine if they want to celebrate the festival too but they are disrespectful to Chinese cultures as they change the name of lunar new year to their new year.

    That’s why now people are saying Chinese New Year, to remind everyone this is Chinese’ culture. If Muslims take Christmas as their biggest holiday and claim that it is theirs. What will you think??( I am not offensive to any cultures and religions. This is just an example)

    Btw I love this video!

    Sorry for my bad English. If you have anything disagree with me, please leave a comment. Thank you!!

  • your photo is a kind of Cultural discrimination!why you put a HongBao in lunar new year vdieo?that means this festival is belong to China?
    we all know many countries in aisa celebrate lunar new year and this festivel is belong to everyone ,so don’t put any Chinese elements in these video and don’t use any words about China, We should correct this mistake of China=eastern culture!

  • Happy New Year Janice! �� blessings fr this year of the ��
    What a nice feast. That thing with the names/meanings of the food is very interesting!

  • We have potluck, hot pot & booze with uncles aunties & cousins…after that we gamble a bit than play some fireworks till 12am to light the firecrackers & grand finale 300shot fireworks

  • The reason why we don’t eat meat on the first day of CNY is because we don’t want to kill animals on the first day of the year back in ancient China in villages animals were killed the day they were consumed..

  • Hi, When i saw you at woolies i notice that you payed with your iPhone? is that right?.If so, is there an app that you can download for eftpos? Thanks

  • I’m very disappointed in you Janice… you didn’t end off your outro with your trademark BYEEEEEEEEEeeeeee…. pls remember to do so in future videos okthxbye

  • Happy Chinese New Year Janice, Next year maybe try the (Sze Yup) Temple in Glebe they do the lion dance on Chinese new year eve at night all the time and usually super crowded.

  • Feel like this channel has better quality then some other food/news channel that makes their video 10 mins just to explain about subbing and liking. You’re channel is awesome! The study and time you put in here is outstanding! Good job.

  • Good if you started giving out awards. eg The janice fung 2020 award for best yum cha, or restaurant, or cinema or shopping centre, lol… each year updated lol

  • Fun fact: calling the Chinese New Year “ lunar new year “ is not right. Chinese New Year is based on Chinese calendar, which is lunisolar one that’s why it’s new year always falls in Aquarius.
    What’s the real lunar calendar then? The Arabic one.

  • Picking up on your note of regional differences, I’d like to add that some Southern China families have an immediate family get together to welcome in the new year to the home with chicken and incense before the actual day of spring festival, then have another celebration on new year’s day itself to open up the new lunar year.

  • Kong Hei Fatt Choy, Janice! Nice to hear you speak Cantonese! Oh, the food….it looks simply scrumptious! I love the vegetarian dishes served for lunch on the 1st day of CNY! Absolutely yummy!

  • 중국인만 Lunar New Year를 따지진 않습니다… Lunar New Year를 보내는 중국만 있지 않으니 한 번 찾아보시는 것도 좋겠네요. 너무 미국에서 chinese lunar new year 로 부르니까 디게 좀 그렇네요 ㅎ;;

  • I am going to sydney the next weekend, would be great if i can see you a moment, go for a coffee or something, I really love your channel ❤️

  • Happy Lunar New Year….Wishing you a happy and prosperous Lunar New Year with lots of new and interesting vlogs for the coming 12 months.

  • I can’t help but wonder if your family migrated to Australia from Hong Kong because the latter will eventually be under the full grip of China

  • Great vid Janice. All the food looked amazing & yummy.��

    Gong hei fat choy 恭喜發財 Janice. Wishing you every success, good health & prosperity in 2020.

  • I love my hometown festival. I remembered on 1991, after my Trip from Thailand, I had watched the New Year’s eve on TVB with GDTV and, Macau Broadcasting and Television Co., Ltd. hosted in Guangzhou, Hong Kong, and Macau. The countdown to the Year of the Sheep has shocked the entire Guangdong region and Hong Kong and Macao. It’s still 29 years old, still fresh in memory.
    Name of the shows in Guangzhou, Hong Kong, and Macau Lunar New Year’s Eve Countdown Gala.

  • Happy Chinese New Year! Teacher Yoyo. May all your wish come true! From Malaysia.
    Selamat Tahun Baru Cina! Cikgu Yoyo. Semoga semua impian awak dapat tercapai! Dari Malaysia.

  • Awesome vlog Janice! We missed the dragon dance in Market City but we saw it in the markets downstairs later. Did you see the little girl singing outside Market City? She was amazing! I posted our photo in my latest vlog about rats.

  • Btw, dumplings may be the must food on lunar new year eve ( night )> the Chinese from/in the northern regions in China / Shanghai, but definitely not for the southern Chinese

  • thanks, I always wanted to know, but I heard in an kids show called peppa pig that they hide the brooms when they finish cleaning to lose the bad luck and welcome the new year, anyways thank you, I appreciate it. <3

  • When my son came home from school last Friday, all he talked about was the Lunar New Year. I think they had a big discussion at school. He was looking forward to the firecrackers I think. I told him that we wouldn’t hear it because we live farther away from where he goes to school where there is a huge Vietnamese community.
    We don’t sweep or clean on Lunar New Year too. I am not Chinese though…we just decided to adopt some Chinese traditions. The one thing that I miss is eating “tikoy”. It is like a sweet, sticky cake that is fried. Yum!
    Happy Lunar New Year!

  • so weird that the temple is so empty

    Jin Wu Koon Lion Dance team! awwesome team!!!
