Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner


Chinese New Year is a little like Thanksgiving where there’s celebration, massive feasting, visits and family feuds about what their Jan said about our Shawn, or in this case, what their Pok Chwee said about our Ah Gu. And this, the celebrations not the feuds, goes on for days.

This year it’s my turn to host Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner. I decided to take the easy route and do Shabu-Shabu. This way I get no complaints about my cooking. 😛

A Jack Daniels Christmas Dinner 2008

The Best Decanter Is Still A Beer Jug

This is my second Christmas dinner I’ve cooked and after cooking so many meals for friends, I’ve come to the realization that my flat can only accommodate comfortable 5-6 people at the table. Which is fine because I really like small intimate dinners.

Lunch At Mi Casa


Lunch! The most important meal of the weekend day because no one really gets up before then. A few colleagues and friends wanted to take a look at my new flat which I spent most of last year trying to move in. And Joel wanted to see how I did my roast beef.

This also gave me the opportunity to fine-tune the planning and process of having guests in the house. And to try out a new cooking method for roast beef.
