DINNER #2 2009 @ BLUE SPLENDOUR, WISMA SANYANG, SIBU

Mee Sua Soup

Like I said that I would be back earlier in the year; well, it's almost a repeat of the last entry with a slight variation. Can you spot the difference? More often than not at these dinners, it's like flying on auto-pilot, cruising through each dish with the occasional pockets of turbulence; like the cheese shrimps (2nd last dish), which had been prepared well ahead of time and the cheese started to congeal by the time it got to the table.

And there was something you don't see everyday on an appetizer plate: fried bait (And yet the judges at the Australia's 1st Masterchef's competition laughed off one of the contestants for serving fish bait!!!). The Ang-Chow (Lees) duck was one Foochow home-dish that had somehow found its way to the banquet table; the lees masked the strong flavor of the
duck.

Like most of these dinners, there were the usual karaoke interludes. See the Sopranos (minus the diva ) [above], apparently the pensive mood said it all. Even the kid was bored of the whole affair; lucky for him, he had his Nintendo DS. "The sky is falling! The sky is falling!"

ABOUT THIS BLOG

As the name implies, it's all about nothing! Kongkaying is like grasping in the air - more like hot air with occasional fartulence. Hopefully, something aromatic will come out of it! If not...

May the Farce be With You!
