2013 CNY Yee Sang Dinner

Assalamualaikum wbt..

I'm not Chinese. Everyone knew that:) lol!
But we are 1Malaysia yaw!!
It was now a tradition that we have a Yee Sang dinner near the Chinese New Year, every year. So this is the second time we are invited by our GM, Mr. Nadhrain for Yee Sang Dinner and this time was held at the same place at China Treasure, Sime Darby Convention Centre.

This year we were jam packed with parties, farewell, birthdays that requires eating eating and eating..
So around 30 people of Renewable Energy Team popped at China Treasure and the night started with a hearty fortune platter 'Yee Sang' which was graciously prepared with Pomelo, Salmon fish, Carrot, Crackers, Green Apples, Sesame Seed and coated with nice flavour of plum sauce.

All diners at the table then stand up and on cue, proceed to toss the shredded ingredients into the air with chopsticks while saying various "auspicious wishes" out loud.

It is believed that the height of the toss reflects the height of the diner's growth in fortunes, thus diners are expected to toss enthusiastically :) :)

Toss as higher as you can..

It was then the time of opening the fortune cookies. Guess mine was a rich and prosperous year. Boo-yah!!
We had great time enjoying our food even though it was 2 hours behind schedule..as usual this group of RE team will never be punctual..lesson learnt..haha!
But one thing for sure, they all managed to finished all these 8-course meals..

We had Lotus Leaf Rice with Yam & Dice Chicken, Steamed Lived Sea Grouper in Garlic Oil, Baked Tiger Prawns with Salted Egg Yolk, and Roasted Duck "Pi Pa" style.

Braised Sliced Abalone with Black Mushroom & Dried Beancurd Skin.

Best that we enjoy chit chatting/gossiping with our colleagues during, as well as after dinner. Myself, Terry and Aesha:)

We had pleasure dining with the whole RE team. The dinner was amazing although it took longer time than expected. After devouring all the main, Alya and I had to rush back home before the kids sleep. We skipped few meals and desert and of course before we headed home, the girls camwhoring as usual:)
