It’s sort of my family tradition to have a chicken drumstick on birthday. I am not sure how it started… I guess that my family was not rich back then, and having a chicken drumstick was quite a blessing.

The practice was off track for a few years because my family was staying in different places… we didn’t celebrate our birthday together as often. I thought the tradition might have been broken, but when I found out that my brother and sister celebrate their kids’ birthday with chicken drumstick… I have a big grin on my face; the legend continues.

Forget about all the delicacies and gourmet… all I want for birthday for years to come is just a simple yet tasty chicken drumstick.

    Humble drumstick..yet so traditional..i tink most kids (from chinese family) born before mid 80’s are familiar with this b’day tradition. Drumstick is consider as luxurious ‘item’ back then when fast food restaurant is uncommon.
    Nowadays, they just prefer something else rather than chic drumstik..

    ic… so it’s not just me and my family then.

    Sometimes the simplest thing is the stuff that bring the greatest joy… kids these days are probably harder to please.

    I think that’s a simple yet touching tradition your family have there. My family dun have drumstick though but we do have “min sin” @ some sort of noodles.

    The Dude… interesting.

    I think your family is more traditional in terms of following Chinese culture; lots of people in China do eat noodles and dumplings in all sorts of festivals and celebrations.

    either drumstick or noodles… the most important is feeling of family reunion and the atmosphere of being together :)
