Reunion Dinner

Since the time we had Micah, MiL had decided it would be easier to have our reunion dinner at a restaurant than at home. It also works out well too for my mum and my two not-yet-married siblings who would join us to complete a table for 10pax.

So here's the dinner we had... of which we had to pack some of the food back, because there was really just too much food.

And so the menu goes...


Yee-sang



4 seasons



Sharksfin soup



Steamed fish



Suckling pig



(Sorry, did not manage to capture a photo of this
as I was too busy feeding Max and myself. Hehe...)

Prawn



Mushroom and abalone with broccoli



Steamed wax-sweetmeats rice



Dessert: Sweet sea coconut with lotus seeds.

Mum and MiL had loads to chat about.
Ee-ee was really good at keeping a sleepy Micah awake and entertained.
He did eat some of the food.


Mommy and Max ate and talked and talked and ate. Max was also busy talking to Gadget-daddy.


Then everyone headed back to our place and we had a surprise birthday celebration for Tua-Ee who's birthday was on CNY eve itself.

It was a circus with a total of 9 children present, all under the age of 12 and all calling her by 3 different titles, plus the 12 adults, to sing Happy Birthday.
We loved the mango mousse cake!

Hope you all who celebrates this festive season had/are still having a good time too.

Ann,

The food was good and the portions were really large - too much for 8 adults and 2 kids.

The cake was really yummy too. Something new for us.

We have steamboat at my mum's for the next 3 days of CNY dinner. By then we had had enough of steamboat. hahaha...

Our journeys,

We ate at a restaurant near our place. Not as pricy as some famous Chinese restaurants.
