Posted on Posted in Author, Food, Party, Photography

MERRY BELATED CHRISTMAS! Am blogging about the X’mas eve Gala dinner and dance with Elvis Presley on Christmas Eve. Roger was working there, what a coincidence! Anyway before I proceed, I wanna tell you about this awesome thing my mum brought home for me.. I don’t know what it is but it is AWESOME.

It’s a Japanese thing , at least that’s what my mum said. Japanese rice with cheese, unagi and lots of crunchy stuff. It looked like a pizza and would taste like one. But its rice. So this is something different! 😀

At first, the whole room was very awkward.. Nobody knew each other.. All had no guts to play, dance etc. Some time later, after MC T warmed up the room, everyone got comfy.

Cold Asparagus and Butterfly Prawns
Sizzled with brown butter and topped with almond flakes
The butter is lovely, the almonds taste good, the prawns are fresh and lovely with a bit of lemon.

Warm Tomato Essence with Prawn Dumplings
What an odd soup.. Its like some kind of Chinese fusion soup.

After the soup, we had a lime sherbet with darjeeling mint tea. It’s similar to lemon tea. 😀

Braised Boneless Leg of Chicken in Pommery Glace
Served with Spring Vegetables and Golden Croquette
The chicken and the gravy is fantastic, as for the croquette, its very bland.. Even with the gravy, its not really interesting anymore.

I am not a fan of fruit cakes, of course, I don’t find this yummy.

Throughout the dinner, we had lots of music, live music, games and lucky draws.

This is one of the singers, she looks a little bit like Siti Nurhaliza, don’t you think?

She and her partner sang English songs, Mandrin, Hokkien and Cantonese songs, Malay songs.. Really cool people.

These are the carol singers, they all looked like they came from the Shrek’s singers. The one with cute voices? Those puppet singers? Yes, those.
