Wedding Lunch of Iris Chow and Hoong Fong Chen@Sechuan Seafood Restaurant Sdn Bhd.

Chinese believes that the Year of the Dragon is a good year for marriages.

This beliefs give roaring businesses to Bridal Houses, Wedding Planners and Chinese restaurants in small towns and  cities all over the country..

This wedding lunch of my niece Iris Chow and her husband Hoong Fong Chen was held @ .
Sechuan@Teluk Intan, Perak.

The wedding lunch started on time, much better than those in the cities.

Was surprised with the food served - matching in taste, freshness, quality, quantity and much more cheaper in prices compared with those in KL or PJ.

 The lunch ended with mini ice-cream potong (bite sized) instead of sweet dessert and pastries.

 Parking is OK.

Six Treasures of Shark's fin scrambled egg, cuttle fish with rojak like sauce, bacon rolled with vegetables- pork chop, mango with smoked cuttle fish salad and spring roll-a great opening !!!

Double-boiled superior soup with whole chicken, mushroom, some shark fins, sea cucumber and sliced Abalone-full of nutrients and invigorating.

Assam Golden Promfret topped with sliced onion and mint leaves-very fresh and appetizing.

Black sea cucumber (look like prickly skin sea cucumber) stuffed with pork/prawn/carrot and fish paste spread with an oyster like brown sauce and served on the side with blanched broccoli -crunchy, gelatinous and full of collagen.

Two styles prawn-deep fried prawns with oats and mayonnaise deep fried prawn

Stir fried Vegetables with sweet  pea bean, bok choy, mushroom, carrot, vegetarian abalone and fish maw-a good accompaniment to the other dishes..

Fried rice with diced carrot, Chinese sausage, egg and topped with freshly chopped spring onion and deep fried Anchovies-fluffy.

Noble House@Jln Delima.

Wedding anniversaries are good occasions to rekindle loving and long lasting relationships.

I attended my second Uncle and Auntie's 60th wedding anniversary dinner @ Noble House.

All of their children with spouses/husband and grand children were there to celebrate the joyful occasion with them.

There were karaoke singing of love songs for the couple, the unwrapping of presents, the candle blowing and making a wish before the slicing of a cheesecake to end the simple dinner. 

I am envious of them as I am only at my 32nd wedding anniversary.

The food presentation are good and pleasing to the eyes.

Parking is bearable.

Noble House's Seafood three treasures-Scallop with smoked bacon pie (cheesey and flamed) -prawn with mango sauce (fresh and thick dip -wish I could have more )and Salmon cubes in zucchini boat (good crunch to the fresh Salmon)-a good appetizer.

Double-boiled Coral Shark's Fin in coconut with chicken meat and vegetable-the soup was very flavorful and full of nutrients-star of the night.

Braised whole Abalone (tender with every bite) sitting on a piece of silky smooth bean curd topped with grounded dried oyster and fatt choy and blanched broccoli -bathed with a thick brown abalone sauce.

Baked white Tuna fish with special sauce in a Dragon fruit boat-well pan fried, flaky with sesame topping and round white flesh scooped Dragon fruit at the bottom..

Fragrant crispy pork belly in Lettuce- julienned carrot, zucchini and spring onion-wrapped it up and chewed it -was a good exercise for the jaw- a bit salty to my liking.

Fresh water prawn with sang mee (a bit soggy when soaked too long, in superior prawn soup)-the prawn was of the right size but was not so fresh.

Deep fried sweet potato ball and deep fried sesame glutinous ball (served hot and warm) with chilled sweetened Aloe Vera and Longan.

Lemon Cheese cake-moist and fulfilling..

Dragon-i @Setia City Mall.

Guest post by Michelle. 

Monday night  shopping trip to H&M@Setia City Mall for clothes and accessories to wear for my cousin sister's wedding next week.

After that we ended at Dragon i for dinner.

A nice and cosy Chinese restaurant with a great view of a shooting waterfall of the Park.

 As I am  not a rice eater, I ordered fried beef noodle to go with a few pieces of crunchy cucumber salad and a piece of xiao loong bao (Chinese soup/meat dumpling).

Overall it was a satisfying meal for the five of us.

Cucumber Salad- crunchy but too much vinegar..

Xiao Loong Bao.

Pork Chop rice with French bean serve in a wooden barrel.

Seafood La Mian with slices of fish, squid and shrimp.

My favorite fried thick La Mian with beef.
