I was invited to a friend's wedding over the weekend here. To be honest, I almost didn't want to go because I wasn't sure if I would end up being alone there. Once, a friend invited me over to his house in Kota Kemuningn for his daughter's birthday. Turned up there to the party going on at full swing with his relatives seated everywhere and I stood out like a sore thumb since I only knew the host. Excused myself and went to Klang for dinner with my parents. The other time, I had arrived and even parked at the wedding dinner venue but my group wasn't picking up the phones. Again, my parents became my savior. Hence, my slight apprehension over attending wedding dinners or any social gatherings.
Having always been people's filler, Plan B, spare
Menu for the night. Rather standard for a Chinese wedding dinner but with some surprises.
Starlight is aiming to be but imho, it falls flat.
There was a pre-dinner drinks served outside the hall but I didn't manage to take picture, sampling only some because my designated driver was late and kept going the wrong way, declining multiple suggestions for me to turn on my Waze. Men -_- It's all right to ask for directions! And not just for the elusive G-spot.
Half our table was with a group of outsiders. When they disappeared before dinner was about to begin, we were honestly hoping that they had hopped onto another table for good.
you have your bodyguard outside right? ask them to beat the rest of the guys up. then we have more food to ourselves.
aiyo, cannot like that. not good.
Somehow, after this first dish itself, he regretted not following that suggestion as the food was superb and we could all do with more.
What more when it's crunchy on the outside with a soft chicken inside. Sort of like a pigs in a blanket.
The soup has a sweetness to it, thanks to the coconut. Hot soups warm my heart like my crushes minus the heartbreak aftermath, only a scalded tongue. However, this version just didn't make it for me as I found the coconut flavor to be a little too overpowering. I prefer mine with the seafood flavors to be more prominent.
Similar to Imperial Garden's, this wasn't as strong with the herbs but the prawns were top notch fresh. So much so that I probably ate at least 5 while the rest of the table were engrossed with watching the video of the morning event. It wasn't very ladylike peeling prawns using your mouth but when you have prawns this fresh, screw it.
Funnily enough, everyone is going for a gluten free diet and here we are cooking it.
Still, the dinner was great and if you are looking for a good place to have your wedding banquet, this is certainly bound to impress your guests.
