Yesterday, Auntie Lucia treated me to lunch at Tanglin Club. Not only that, she gave me a bunch of stuff, including fish oil for my doggie! Thank you!
Last Sunday, we were treated to a sumptuous lunch paid for by my father and uncle. It was a gathering for the entire extended family. When my grandma was still around, it was an annual ritual to get together for her birthday celebration. Last Sunday's lunch was the first gathering for the clan ever since granny's demise in 2005.
A total of 90 people attended the lunch at Boon Lay Raja Restaurant. The place is rather old fashioned but the food is good.
It was an 8-course lunch, eaten over two hours.
Hot and cold combo dish.
The roasted crispy duck was excellent!
Broccoli with fresh scallop.
Pork in a yam ring.
Herbal fish soup.
E fu noodles with quail eggs.
For dessert, we had the traditional Teochew dish - orh nee - sweet yam with pumpkin and ginkgo nuts. It was my late granny's favourite.
Speaking of desserts, our friends gave us a treat at Awfully Chocolate (East Coast) on Friday night.
The cakes were so good, I must have put back all the weight I've recently lost!
Super stacked chocolate cake with vanilla ice cream.
The pear frangipane tasted surprisingly good.
Peanut butter crumble - I have a weakness for peanut butter!
Amy also treated us to fruits and wine at her house last week. The cloudberry (lakka) liqueur put us all on cloud 9! I need to get my hands on a bottle if I travel to Scandinavian countries.
Finally, CH is treating his family (us included) to steamboat dinner at Joo Chiat tonight. Another treat. I am one lucky girl!
