Wedding Dinner @ Grand Park City Hall
Down to the last wedding of 201...or so I thought. Until someone passed me yet another red bomb a couple of days later. Congratulations K and C...it has been such great honour and pleasure witnessing your love blossom for each other. Was there when they were friends, became a couple, engaged and now married. How we have all grown and moved on with our lives!
Pineapple soda was one of those drinks that the companions recommended with the tapas trays that were going around. Pineapple juice and soda? Scrumptiously delish I say! Shall replicate that for house parties next time.
Suckling Pig Combination
Suckling pig, Salad prawn, Deepfried silver fish, Springroll, Roast Duck
Suckling pig seems to be upping its appearances at cold dish these days - nice! A pity most of these items came lukewarm rather than piping hot. At least something to quell the hunger pangs by the time banquet started.
Braised Shark's Fin Soup with Fish Maw and Crabmeat
A rather starchy one. Shall stop there lest I get lynched by the shark huggers for drinking more bowls of this - I stopped at one!
Sauteed Fresh Scallops, Asaparagus and Macadamia Nuts in XO sauce
A delicious vegetable dish instead of the usual brocolli with mushrooms. Tasty much!
Deepfried Prawns in Wasabi Sauce topped with Sesame Seeds
A tad overfried and was somewhat dry.
Steamed Red Garoupa in Teochew Style
Refreshing take on the usual deepfried to death fish or cantonese style steamed fish. Teochew style gets it done plain and flavourful with all the natural juices.
Roast Crispy Whole Chicken Topped with Fragrant Minced Garlic
We all thought the fragrant minced garlic was enoki mushrooms but judging from the description seemed otherwise.
Braised Ee Fu Noodles with Seafood and Mushroom
Thankfully the kitchen did not massacre this dish with gravy - just alright.
Yam Paste with Gingko Nuts and Pumpkin
I've been looking forward to this since the day the bride did her tasting session. One of the better orh nee renditions - not so sweet yam paste with a nice touch of pumpkin. This, is what I call a sweet finish.
Wedding favours of spoons or icecube trays - thougthful!
