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.. :)

  2. Love the beautiful layout of the garden theme. Your locally made dress looks just as nice as the owner.

  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.

Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner At San Jose 2022

TABLE FOR FOUR... We had our own reunion Chinese New Year dinner on Monday evening.... we made a simple one, just hot pot at home.  All we have to do is to clean the vegetables, get everything defrosted... and the hot pot boiling with a packet of seasoning.  They sell a lot of hot pot seasoning over here, from tomato soup to shrimp and chicken soup, I just threw in the whole packet of paste.  No doubt not so healthy but it is so easily done....  As usual, Chinese New Year won't be CNY without a plate of Loe Sang...  No crackers so I put in a few pieces of Tacos... LOL... Most important is the sauce....  The apricot, plum sauce and honey makes it right.... And our dishes for the evening..... We ate too much shrimps the day before so we omitted for this evening.... Simple and yet satisfying meal for our Reunion Dinner....

Cookies For Chinese New Year 2022 In San Jose

MISSING IN BLOGGING AGAIN.... this has become a norm now ever since I arrived to this continental... LOL... Now I understand the word of Full Commitment when it comes to taking care of baby... seriously, I have to be fully commited and occupied by this little cheeky fella who is now going to be his 10th month soon.  Wow... time flies, when I first came, he was just slightly over four months... that being said, it is soon time fo rme to pack my bags and leave.  LOL... My 6 months being a babysitter is soon over... and did I say I can hardly wait?  NO, NO... I love my job here and I am going to miss my baby tremendously!  I only don't miss his cries!  LOL...  OK, by the time I write this post, Chinese New Year is over, it is now the 4th day of CNY.  Two days before the Lunar New Year, my daughter-in-law and I cooperated fully and baked a few types of cookies.  Looking back at these pictures, I dare say that we did a good job... not on the cookies but at least we had a great time bond

Buffet Lunch At Baccanal Caesar Palace Hotel, Las Vegas

BUFFET LUNCH... We made reservation for a nice buffet a week before we came to Las Vegas, the buffet is one of its kind in Caesar Palace, Baccanal is the name of the restaurant.  My kids were saying that we must have at least one good and memorable meal while here in Las Vegas and they chose the seafood buffet.  It cost around $90 per pax and being Asians, sure we would be attracted to just seafood!  Alaska Crabs... hairy crabs....lobster claws..  clams etc etc...  Oh, I did not take much photos on what we ate, just too busy stuffing in and to take out the camera with dirty hands and all.  LOL.... Just the initial stage and after that, it was all about eating and eating... oh, by the way, they only allowed 90 minutes in the restaurant, but I don't think they timed anyone... LOL.. Anyway, we took that amount of time to finish our food, sipping free champayne and mocktail too.  What a scrumptious meal... from mains to desserts, I think we only had one meal done for that day itself...
