Hot lunch…

After the tea ceremony and the photo-taking session at my sister-in-law’s place on Saturday morning, it was time for lunch. They had the food catered by some restaurant at 3rd Mile – I do not know exactly which one it was as the guys doing the home delivery were only conversant in Mandarin but I did manage to find out from them that it cost RM16.00 per head.

There was the fried rice…

…with lap cheong (Chinese sausage) which was o.k. – nothing special as I would be able to cook that myself at home…and in the next dish, underneath all the ingredients and gravy, you would find the noodles…

I guess this is the Cantonese style where they deep fry the noodles till hard and crispy and then pour the sauce all over them. It was o.k. too – I did not have seconds…if you catch the drift.

The butter prawns were pretty good…

…and they also had this chicken dish…

…but I found the meat a bit over-fried and kind of hard. This next one was the fish fillet…just that you cannot see it in the photo buried under all the onions and stuff.

The mixed vegetables were the most colourful of the lot…

…but I did not have any as I’m not a fan of the dish.

I liked the salad…

…that was prepared by the groom’s sister.

On the whole, it was a fairly good buffet spread but I do think that they should do something about their presentation and try to make their dishes more colourful…and look more appetising.
