A Wedding Dinner At Last...

My kids and I drove a half hour journey to attend a wedding dinner at the East Ocean restaurant in Menglembu last night... it has been a long-long time since we last went to a wedding dinner....

I didn't even know what the current market price to put inside the red packet these days... The last time I went for a wedding reception, it was around RM50 only... But nowadays the market price has doubled.... no wonder a wedding card is commonly known as a "summon".. only difference is that this "summon" comes along with food..... lol...
  
all smiles  .... these two fellas enjoyed the "Yam Sing" part...
The cutting of the wedding cake...
our table only consisted of seven people...
so food was abundant... 
the "abalones" with minced fish paste...  
after the first dish, we waited nearly thirty minutes for the 2nd dish..
it was definitely worth waiting for....
the Poon Choy came out.... 
Never had "Poon Choy" in a wedding dinner before...
so Yummylicious!
I ate a lot from this pot here...
then came the prawns..
How I wish I could "wallop" more...
But I limited myself to two... (self control!) 
the Cheers (YaaammmmmmmmmSing!)
another one of my favourite dish...
the glutinous rice... 
another "unhealthy" dish for me.. hahaha....
these dumplings came out fresh and crispy.... Best!
accompanied by the dessert, sago and the white fungus...

There were actually 8 dishes all in all...
but I was already 3/4 full after the 2nd dish!
Another pound gained during the dinner... 
But then it is worth it.... the food was fantastic!
Next week.... another reception...
But this time it will be held in the bride's house...

  18. You are totally right about this hotel! I've seen it a couple of times and I couldn't help but fall in love with the huge and elegant venue. But if you don't have the budget, you may opt for Long Island wedding halls because they have equally nice venues at a more affordable rates.
