Finally, I am posting the pics of the wedding dinner which I've attended in Johor Bahru - not to mention the horrifying experience which I've posted in my other blog
It was truly a great gathering, as I have met up with all of my good friends (some of them have gone on separate paths of career choice)
To cut the long story short, a glimpse into the nice spread of food served during the wedding dinner of this wonderful friend of mine
A little token of appreciation from the bride and groom for all their guests
(I think my friend personally made these little notes for all)
A bite courtesy from the restaurant
The first dish served was the Five Happiness
A tantalizing dish with a tasty variety
The base of the dish was actually made of jelly!
2nd Dish: The braised shark's fin soup with crab meat
3rd Dish: Steamed chicken
It may seem a little weird that they serve chicken in this style for a wedding?
According to all the guests, this was actually very well done - everyone enjoyed this delightful dish
4th Dish: Steamed pomfret
Wow, I rarely see this fish in such a big size and the first thing that came to my mind:
'Hmmm...so big, may not be too good'
Boy, was I wrong!
The fish was really fresh and the flesh was steamed to perfection - it was really tender and succulent
5th Dish: Double flavored prawns (Sweet and sour)
Yet another wonderful bite; and the best part, it was already peeled for our consumption.
(and to think my friend requested for a set of cutlery for this purpose~:)
6th Dish: The vegetable dish - Choice of asparagus stir-fried with scallops in spicy shrimp paste
Scallops and asparagus....need I say more whether it's good?
A nice little deco on the plate
7th dish: For some carbs, this is the lotus leaf rice
The last but not the least important dish, this proved to be the true winner of the night!
A combination of hot and cold cakes - the ones in white are wafer coating the frozen strawberries while the brownish ones on the lower front were the fried pastries
These delightful bites were served with a bowl of sweet red bean soup cooked with lotus seeds and sago
This was truly one of the most unique desserts I have tried at a wedding dinner!
Congratulations to my beautiful friend and her husband and this is a toast to their happy-ever-after wedding!
