Meals on Dragon Boat Festival

We had a simple meals prepared just for the Duan Wu or Dragon Boat Festival on 28th May, also the 5th day in the 5th month of the Chinese lunar calendar.  The dishes were prepared by my brother's maid under the supervision of my mum.  I have had only a zongzi for lunch so I was pretty hungry and all ready for the dinner. 
Fish with sweet and sour sauce but it was a bit overcooked on the black part.
boiled chicken (from the soup)
Bitter gourd with eggs.  Good for lowering blood sugar and with cooling properties.  I love bitter gourd, the bitter the better.
Mixed vegetable (green pepper, button mushroom, brocolli, and baby corns).  My mum forgot to sprinkle the cashew nuts on top to add flavour to this dish.  We had the cashew nut as dessert instead.
Fried chopped garlic in soy suace for dipping of boiled chicken.
