Fong Lye @ Jalan Imbi.

On the 10th day of Chinese New Year, the entire extended family decided to gather for dinner at Fong Lye, introduced by Aunt Diana. Honestly, the first time i've ever tried was the one in The Gardens and it did not leave a good impression as i find the food rather bland. Stepped out of the restaurant and started grumbling as to why it's always full-house each time i pass by the restaurant.

Truth is, I take back my words.

I must say that this is the best refreshing lime juice ever! Unlimited servings to quench our thirst as we waited for our seats.

Eating 'yee sang' symbolizes paving for better fortunes, health, wealth, prosperity and everything good. The vegetables are grated into long find strips to symbolize longevity.

Buddha Jumps Over The Wall.
It's a soup/potage dish that is peculiar with an extensive list of ingredients in it - abalone, bamboo shoots, mushrooms, quail eggs, etc.

The cold dish.
5 side dishes, ranging from vegetables to meat.
The scallop is as big four thumbs combined.

Steamed Salty Chicken.
One of my favourite dishes among all.
The meat is tender and juicy, and the saltiness..mmm hmm.

Butter Prawns with Thousand Island Dressing.
It was pretty good.
Unfortunately i got only one because fellow cousins grabbed them all before i could grab the second one!

Fried Bean Curd with White Gourd.
The gravy is tasty, not lumpy and sticky.
The vege is not too soft either. Yummmayyy!

Fish Head Soup.
It's like everything (vegetables, fishball, meat and the fish head) are dumped into this huge pot of piping hot soup. Nothing great tho.

Roasted Pork with Leak.
This is below average for me.
I dislike the burnt aftertaste that the pork gave and i dislike leak.
But all the adults LOVE it.

Pork Belly with Siu Pak Choy.
This is good as well! But just be sure to bite out that chunk of oil.

On a whole, the food were pretty good and the service is pretty decent as well despite the limitation of space. If you would to dine in here, i suggest you to make reservations beforehand as it's always full and they have REALLY limited tables.

Have a pleasant day ahead! >:)

MY Valentine's Day.

Hello folks!

Here's just a short update from me before i leave for grands place. =)

Honestly, i've never ever celebrated Valentine's Day (yes i've received flowers and all before) but i've never like officially go out and celebrate it. To me it's just another day created by Hallmark to sell their cards and for restaurants to make extra moolah. Heh.

So talking about yesterday, it was totally beyond my expectation. Got a bouquet of roses+eustomas with butterflies and was brought to a awesome restaurant for dinner. Was insisted that i should not disclose about the place but he did not say that i can't give hints right. Tsk tsk. So the hint is, ZOO. :D

Ok la, give you another hint. There's lotsa real animals but they're fake. :D Go figure go figure!

The moment we sat down i burst out laughing because instead of using candles, they use this. It's for prayers btw. Haha.

Ordered this for starter. The crab filling was gleeeeeelicious.

His plate of Cape Seafood Platter.
The combination of the king sized prawns, muscles, fish, etc were perfecto!

Mine's Lamb Shank.
Very lambbbyyy taste. Me like!

Banana split for dessert! :D
Was extremely stuffed and satisfied. What a great chillax dinner.

'The way to a woman's heart is through her tummy...'
Maybe not all but that is certainly so darn right to me.

Thank you. =)

; Everyday is a Valentine's Day don't ya think so? ;)

Sorry love.
