Not everyone was able to make it this time. Kok Ken and Heng Mun are in Malaysia. Li Voon is somewhere in China. Edward Leong is in Wellington, Kok Kong had prior arrangement, Chris Sit had to pull out the last minute because his wife was not feeling well.

Steven Au is missing in action. Henry and Hon Loy could not be located. Lilian couldn’t make it from Hamilton. Wai Sek Mau miscalculated by one day!

IMG_0088 Anti clockwise from all the alcohol: Woon Chai Goh, Gado Gado, Chicken Wings, mixed springroll samosa-prawns and Thai chicken feet ( thoroughly washed and manicured!) …and Tsing Tau barley water

We had a great time chatting, laughing and ripping into each other. Of course politics were discussed. Michael promised to charter a plane to fly back to vote at the next election. Those wearing blue jerseys have to find their way home.

IMG_0089 Anti clockwise from the gado gado: Sey Ngan Chai’s roast duck and siew yoke; Brickfield’s spicy Indian chicken, human hand!…and more of the same. Others still to arrive.

The food was really really good. Except for the Sey Ngan Chai’s roast duck, all the food were created by some of these siew cheh…Ooops! Koo Liang master chefs.

Back to the main subject: Food More food had arrived. Tai she tow’s wat tan hor, fried noodles and Kampong Bharu’s nasi birayni. Still missing are the hokkien noodles and rojak.


Bernard arguing with Veron. Queue from this way. Veron wants it the otherway. ….but I have waited at this end since 5.00 pm!
