A Wedding Dinner At Overseas Restaurant, Ipoh

The wedding dinner was supposed to start at 7.30pm sharp as written in the card, and I purposely drove out at 6.30pm so that I could get a parking place in the restaurant compound. To my disappointment, all were fully parked even though I was there an hour earlier. Leaving no choice, I had to drive out again and parked opposite into another road. Quickly stepped out of the car and joined a group of women who walked past mine. Didn't want to be alone while walking and furthermore, Ipoh is no more a safe haven to walk around in the evening too...

Since I was early and my friends also arrived almost the same time, we quickly took some pictures of the beautiful garden backdrop right at the entrance of the restaurant.
Beautiful layout... 
Wonder it is from the restaurant or from the wedding planner.... 
It was made "PERFECT" when a beautiful lady sat on it....
The bride's sister... so sweet!! 
The colour of the gown suits her real nice! 
Hope I didn't spoil the garden theme.... 
As usual to while away the time...
Someone mentioned I was "squashed"...
No... I was given "love and warmth" actually...
So nice of my friend to take these pictures for me..
Theme.... Garden Wedding....
The first dish.... in three platters...
My share on the first dish... so refined...
Managed to capture our classmate, the bride's mother to have a picture with us....
And a last one before we went our separate ways....
Most probably from now on, wedding cards will be more regular....

    1. Yes, food is secondary when friends meet up... the fun of catching up with one another is more meaningful.. :)

  9. I guess that's not the restaurant's decor...part and parcel of the wedding planner's package? They spend thousands on the decor these days - like my niece that day. 3K for the decor at the restaurant alone. I do think the money could have been better spent on something else - best to keep it simple...unless one's rich and can jolly well afford it. After all, it's their money - can do what they want with it.

  11. Lovely backdrop. I think it is from the wedding planner. I also attended one last month and the backdrop was so beautiful. Hollywood theme.

    I should pursue my dream of a wedding planner. Did thought of it few years ago and thought it was relatively new in Kuching. But now there are few of them around. Haha.

    Lovely photos.

Our Orders From Afghanistan, Spanish And Australia

My Final post on the Food Festival in the Victoria Market on Wednesday night.... The atmosphere at the market was "enhanced" by the cheerful songs and music by a group band... It was indeed a merry evening filled with music-licous folk songs in the air... . Ok, how to find four seats in this crowd.... hmmmm....... Somehow we managed to... and these were what my boys brought back to our table.... Mexican rice with oysters... or is it Spanish rice?   Both are the same, I guess... LOL.... Afghanistan Food.... chunks of chicken meat with naan.... Brazilian food.... don't ask me what it is.... I just ate what was on the table....  But I am amazed by this giant burger....  ..... and what burger is this? They told me it is Crocodile Tail Burger! Meat from the crocodile tail?  Is it just a name or what... I really don't know... Took a few bites of it... and I am full!! Well, these were the food we

My Failed Project In Baking Mini Egg Cakes

FAILED THIS TIME..... I don't know why, I follow exactly the ingredients and the method written in her website but it was not successful.  Something went wrong somewhere but I don't think I want to try it again.  This recipe is called Mini Egg Cake which is supposed to be soft, airy, light sponge cake but the way I made them, they turned out hard and crusty cake.   If I try again one day, I will half the portion... cos I like to eat these traditional egg cakes.... The Ingredients...  No point putting the recipe here since I failed..  LOL...  The portions of this recipe....  It looked very promising when I put them into the oven.... Even when they were in the baking process... they look good, aren't they? LOL...  I was so happy just by looking at the mini egg cakes in the tray....  And after they were let out... my heart sank....  The minute I took them out from the tray, I knew... Hard at the top...  Tak Jadi = Failed.... Now come to t

Home Cooked Dishes

NOT MUCH HAPPENING... and lazy too.... My neighbour gave me half pumpkin and I have been keeping it for a couple of days before I finally decide what to do with it.  I cook it into small chunks and sauteed it with minced meat, okra and basil leaves.  Yes, it would be great to put in some small cilipadi but unfortunately, I did not find any in my fridge.  Steamed a bowl of rice and that was meal for dinner.... One dish meal....  Pumpkin reminds me of sweet potatoes...sweet after cooking... Another dinner meal consist of Sambal Fish, black pepper met and a hard boiled egg  I only boiled the egg, the other two dishes were "sponsored" by my neighbour... LOL...
