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.

Mini Birthday Celebration At August Healing, Ipoh

GETTING HEALED AGAIN... this time four of us went to August Healing for other sweet and savoury delights.  This time when we went up to the little cafe, the tables were all occupied except for one.  Next time we must not go during lunch time.  Mistake....  Anyway, we managed to get a table near the window while waiting for another two of my friends to arrive.  First time visit for them and I hope they like the food there as much as I like them.  We ordered three different varieties to share as we had a heavy breakfast in the morning....  Which shall I choose? Berries bread pudding today....  Forgot what this is called....  Garlic honey scones...  Coffee for my friends.... As for me, I had Chamomile tea....  We ordered one croissant to share.... Smoked duck and omelette fillings... Full to the brim... RM15....  Quiche again.... different fillings this time... RM15 And a Happy Birthday piece of cheese cake... RM14.. Though just a few varieties, we were very full.... For dinner, I just ha

Freshly Baked With Love From Breadlady

BUNS AND PIES... freshly baked with Love.... printed on a brown paper bag, delivered by her handsome son right to my doorstep!  LOL.... Saw it on Facebook, one of my friends put up the fresh curry buns she ordered.  Yours truly saw and salivated and the next thing, I have the details I needed.  During the weekdays, the Breadlady has different kinds of buns and on Saturdays, she makes shepherd pies.  Since I got the details on Friday, I quickly messaged her and ordered 5 packets!  No, I did not eat them all, I ordered for my friends too, they have the same common interest as I do.  LOL...  ' Each set of shepherd pie comes with 2 fresh buns costing RM15.   I like her packing.... Brown paper bag with this slogan... Freshly baked with love...  The pies were still warm when they were delivered to right to  my doorstep with no extra charge... So nice! This was my lunch on Saturday.... I like the buns too...fresh and soft... One is filled with cranberries and apple.. And the other one is

Dim Sum For Six In First Garden, Ipoh

BREAKFAST PLANS.... and we had Dim Sum this morning in First Garden.  We made the plans the night before to meet at the shop at 9am...  (A relief for me cos I had been waking up very early these days!)   Managed to get a big table for six pax, thanks to two of my friends who were there earlier than 9.  Except for the SOP procedures, it looks like business were back to normal in some areas.  We spent around an hour enjoying the below Dim Sum and we would be meeting again for lunch later!  Opppsss... it is all about eating again during this time of RMCO... (Recovery Movement Control Order) First to be served... the Dim Sum-s... And the total cost for our orders came to RM60.... Definitely a good deal... I am definitely full.... for now! LOL...
