Birthday Celebration At East Ocean, Menglembu

SOMEHOW THIS POST SLIPPED THROUGH MY FINGERS... cos this birthday happened before the previous one on promotion.

With the group apps, it is so much easier to plan and update one another.  During my yesteryears, how did we contact one another to celebrate something?  I think it is through word by mouth or the black phone in the house.  But then not everyone has a black phone in the house those days.  I am talking about the years back in the 70s.... hahahahaa...  Ok, never mind the past... it happened so long ago and I could not remember much at my age now.

Coming back to my topic, the eight of us met up in East Ocean Restaurant in Menglembu to celebrate one of my ex-classmates' birthday.  One by one each of us have reached one digit higher than the rest though we were born of the same year.  Mine is still a couple of months away... *hint hint* No worries, by the time it is my turn, I will yell out LOUD!
Started off with a bowl of soup minus the shark fins...
Instead they put in misua to replace... 
Very tasty surprisingly!
This one came in first.... I remember cos it is my favourite dish...
Steamed Yam with dried shrimps as toppings!
Then all the dishes came in at one shot...
Garoupa in spring onions and ginger...
Kailan with the soft type of fungus...
Mixed vegetables...
Well, I guess we are pretty conscious on our food... mostly veg!
Followed by Buttered Prawns in curry leaves...
And lastly, Lemon Fried chicken... 
For desserts, we have their signature pudding... RM3 each...

We had two types of Cakes.... 
The Yam Cake ...
And the Buttered Cup Cakes by Nancy Chong... each cost RM3 for a mini-sized cup...
And that is our Birthday Girl for the evening.... 
So... who will be the Next one in line?
September is coming soon!
Oh, about the bill, it came to around RM300 over...

  3. A nice gatherinv and birthday celebration.

    Remember the black phone where you need to use your finger to turn and dial the number. Remember we used it before switching to the button pressing type.

    Nowadays everyone has handphone. The house phone is not much use at all. Jusr apply to get internet line only. ^^

  7. The soup looks so good. And the cupcakes are beautiful! The pudding looks like it is surrounded by egg drop soup! Lovely.

  8. Is mock shark fin soup common these days?

    Are cakes generally of good quality esp the chocolate cake or brownies in coffee shops or eateries (except high-end eateries) in Malaysia?

    Cakes are generally of poor quality in Turkey. Their chocolate cake and chocolate desserts have a low cocoa butter content. Usually, the cakes are layered with thick lashings of cream; vegetable based ???? but definitely not butter cream. I don't know about five stars hotels and foreign ??? owned (not Starbucks) eateries in Istanbul. In the supermarkets including corner shops, there are different types of premix for puddings and cakes.

    1. Yes, shark fins are not encouraged nowadays... so they replace with other creativity... Cakes here depends on which shops.. the ones that I normally love to order is Nancy Chong, famous since the 1960s...

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...
