First Full-Filling Meal In Ming Mei Shi, Sibu

After picking us from the airport, we were taken to Hotel Medan, nice and clean room with two double queen beds, doesn't it sound comfortable? Thanks to Arthur for booking the rooms for us..

Upon reaching the hotel, we were told that dinner would be at around 6.30pm and in that half hour, we did not have time to take our shower... I just had a quick touch up and change of clothing and true enough, the whole gang was downstairs waiting for us... Well, hope we didn't smell bad that night... hahaha...

At the lobby, we were met up with Arthur and family, Ling, Quay Po and her bestie.... with hugs and kisses presented, off we went to the dinner function in this Ming Mei Shi Seafood Restaurant.... As usual, I let my photos tell the rest.................
Here we are... seated comfortably...
in a matter of minutes, the first dish came out...
there were some "oohss" and "ahhss.." 
Sibu ship...
the "clicking" sound began...
someone joked... "Let the camera eat first"... 
This is Blogger's life... hahahaa.. 
Arthur, this one is for you....
when you posted up mine in FB, 
I received a comment that I must have fell on the dish face-flat! 
MIDIN , this is a MUST...
Fish.. the sauce is really unique!
Guess what this is... it wobbles before it was cut up...
wow.. so neatly cut... I love this sauce too!
Tasted great with these steamed mantau dumplings....
Anther Must have...Cangkuk Manis... 
(did I get it right, Arthur?)
another Foochow dish...
beancurd in vinegar soup...
something like shark fin....  :)
Buttered Prawns, Sibu Style!
Arthur told us that he didn't order this.. 
but somehow it came.. and we just "walloped" la... 
Gosh..the dishes seems never ending!
this is Foochow noodles... 
By then.. our stomach were kind of "expanded" 
Lastly and not least... the desserts..
I was very surprised that they were pomelo served...
so cleanly shaven and juicy too...
The Gang in Sibu...
There were eleven of us actually...
One for the album... my first meal in Sibu..
