A Healthy heart and a Wet mouth!

WEDDING NO.1

DSC09283
YAMMM- SENG!

DSC09284
In other words... Kampai! Bottoms Up! Down the Hatch! Mud in your Eye! Cheers ! Let the cup be dry but health and prosperity ever to you and yours!

or my personal favourite... "A Healthy Heart and a Wet Mouth forever!"

You know it's going to be a good night when family is near, the tipple is endless.. and good food is just around the corner.

For just a second, I felt really rather sorry for this poor guy. Almost felt regret at having to eat him... mmm, a very short second.

What can i say. Amazing little pig. Melts like butter and yet explodes in your mouth into a Zonkillion little crunchy pieces!

I love pig.

Later the meat will be consumed as well. Have no fear.

Abalone soup. Individually double-boiled bowls of goodness. Very, very good.

Soft shell crab! Unusual at a chinese dinner, but really rather well done. Even better than some japanese restaurants, if I may say so myself.

Didn't I say they would use ALL parts of that little piggy? Did you not HEAR me.. eek! :P

This is my favourite part of the fish... it's head, i.e. Skull, eyes and all... ;P



What can we say... when our friends/family get married.. we get eating, drinking, merry-making. Life is good!

Congratulations to the Happy Couples!

Somehow with porky parts and the fish eye, you've managed to make wedding dinners into something of an adventure, no? Here's kampei to the next one! :D

Mark said...

Happy dinner can see, and the abalone soup, walau...

all we want is to be bitten pink n purple by that deliciously gorgeous wet lips on pix no 14. Even if the heart stops beating for 60 secs , why even forever

J2Kfm said...

haha ... I CAN hear you. :)
but seems a bit gross to be chewing on a suckling's ear wax, no?

anyway, soft shell crabs suit a wedding the most, cz no need use hands to crack open shells, and risk destroying that million dollar dress.

i think i was in that same room in oriental a few weeks back, coz i recognised it instantly. food looks darn good. how come all your wedding dinners all so good food one? unlike those i attend....where i have to bring a hipflask full of tipple (ok la, these days that's rare), and a saltshaker full of msg?

boo_licious said...

aaah, the famous soft shell crab at Oriental. Very good stuff, esp with the mantou. The piggy looks nice and crispy.

Cool, another place to check out crabs. Kinda sick of the usual places so must try something new.

CUMI & CIKI said...

kenny:
yar.. weddings are a riot:P

mark:
agree

bsg:
if your heart stops beating, u stop writing.. how can?:P

j2kfm:
i am thinking they clean the ears before they cook it..(like in river cottage - u know, when they show you how they slaughter the pig and clean up every part?!) and stop putting scary thoughts into my head.. hahaha:P good point about the designer dress .. lol

fbb:
really ? I have the opposite experience - normally too salty and too much msg for me.. rather than bland food ..lol

boolicious:
yea, you won't be disappointed:D

Nic (KHKL) said...

i'm sorta biologically declined..so, just wanna ask, which part of the pig is that red arrow pointing to ar?

and come next month, there'll be even more wet mouths!

CUMI & CIKI said...

Shell (貝殼) said...

the little pig so flavoursome and delicious.. i'm feel very very hungry now

Big Boys Oven said...

fatboybakes said...

guffaw nic, which part of the pig DID you think it was?

CUMI & CIKI said...

shell:

bbo:
