A Delightful Time In Delight

The chinese ladies in my office, all nine of us, we went for our own "sau koong chau" .. how to translate this to english? Ok, something like this.. for those working under chinese bosses, at this time before Chinese New Year, the boss will treat his staff to a sumptious meal. But for our case, we are our own bosses, we treated ourselves instead.... lol..

We had a wonderful time savoring the dishes and joking among us, especially with our special retiree buddy, May Tan who joined us for this occasion. She brought a bottle of red wine and everyone had a fair share of the drink except the poor sick me! Anyway, sick or not, we had a good time with one another....
At the Delight Restaurant

  13. How wonderful, looks like you had very delicious food, very pretty table setting and most important of all, good friends. Once a year we have what they call Secretaries Day, and our Boss would take us to lunch, there were four secretaries and the boss. We would always pick a Chinese Restaurant, but I understand Chinese food in America is quite different from the real Chinese foods.Myself, I like Kung Pao Chicken with steamed rice, and Hot Sour Soup. We also got our choice of either an egg roll, sweet potato tempura, chicken wing or a crab rangoon. I also love the things called pot stickers.

  14. wow,
    the post is a feast,
