Thanx to E, A and Chef J for the fantastic concoctions one Sunday afternoon... Truly HALL OF FAME quality!
Salted Fish (Ham Yui) with Red Onion salad - Deeeeeeeeeelicious! Powerful but subtle flavours. It is so good, that A described it as "Pecah kepala!" (Translates to ... "Smash head!") Buttery Curry Prawns - Excellent! Great taste!
Baby Pomfret - Can be eaten head to tail, crispy! Stir Fried Scallop with Kai Lan Head - Crispy, yummy.
Double Boiled Chinese Soup - Fantastic! I had 4 bowls!! Roast Lamb in Black Pepper Sauce - I ate half the dish!!!
Sambal Petai - Not pungent like normal petai, but still not my thing :-)
Veuve Clicquot Ponsardin (with Ice Jacket) - Beautifully stocked up in a wine fridge, slurp!
Frontera Cabernet Sauvignon in mini-bottles ... produce of Chile
Jolly Shandy ... Malaysia Boleh!
Prosecco Del Veneto - Italian 'champagne'!
Plum Wine from Japan (Choya-esque!)
AboutJapan.com ...Umeshu is a liqueur made with plums. It has been consumed over 1,000 years in Japan. Umeshu is made by soaking unripe ume plums in shochu (alcohol content of about 35%) and sugar. Ume plums contain potassium and calcium, so umeshu is said to be good for health. Green ume plums are mainly harvested in May/June in Japan.
AND, an interesting premium I noticed ... dice game that's very popular but in a fancy cylindrical jar, by Hennessy VSOP.
Source: DVD (SS2) I love Ben Stiller, especially in Meet The Parents and Zoolander ... and now here's another one of his films! This is a film by Bobby and Peter Farrely aka the Farrely Brothers (There's Something About Mary, and Dumb & Dumber). I loved this film, laughed so har!
IMDB.com ... Eddie is forty, owns a sporting-goods store, and is still single. After watching his ex-fiancée walk down the aisle, he meets Lila, an environmental researcher, who seems too good to be true. Pressured by his father and best friend, Eddie pops the question and marries Lila after only 6 weeks. However, as he almost instantly discovers, his new bride is a nightmare with more baggage than he can handle. She's immature, foolish, a monster in bed, owes a tremendous amount of money to various sources, and as it turns out, is only a volunteer and doesn't actually have a job. While on their honeymoon in Cabo, Eddie meets Miranda, a down-to-earth lacrosse coach who is visiting with her family. Sparks fly, and Eddie falls for her. Now comes the tricky part of breaking off his marriage to crazy Lila, all while keeping the truth from Miranda about why he's in Cabo in the first place...
Ben Stiller ... Eddie Cantrow Malin Akerman ... Lila Michelle Monaghan ... Miranda Jerry Stiller ... Doc (Did you know that Jerry is Ben's dad!?) Carlos Mencia ... Uncle Tito
The new Nokia 6500 Classic ... Fancy design, very sleek, cool flash on the rear, 2 megapix camera, and nice slip-in case. But I am not a fan of the small narrow keys on the keypad.
