What are you doing New Year’s Eve…

Melissa left for Sungai Petani on New Year’s Day, the 1st of January, and the night before – New Year’s Eve, I suggested getting a few dishes from my current favourite restaurant and having dinner at my parents’ house as I knew it would make my mother especially happy. Nothing beats seeing the smile on her face and the sparkle in her eyes everytime the family – those of us around here – get together and sit down for a meal on such auspicious occasions.

I ordered the Four Seasons + one…

…which seemed to be some kind of a seafood platter special. I requested for these – the fried fish fillet with almond flakes…

…that we had before and I really liked them a lot.

The fried prawn balls with salad cream were very nice too…

…and even though I’m not a fan of mussels, these mussel fritters were pretty good as well…

These were not bad also…

..,.and the fish maw with snow peas made up the whole dish.

I wanted the fish again – the one with the very nice sauce…

…and this time around, instead of one thick slab, they gave one half of the fish. Everybody loved and enjoyed it a lot.

Then, there was the sea cucumber and beef tendon with broccoli…

…and it being the eve of the new year, I ordered a bit of fried mee sua

…in keeping with the tradition – for longevity and prosperity.

All in all, the bill came up to RM150.00 for 6 persons…and in addition to all that, my mother asked Melissa whether she wanted crabs and since both of them expressed a fancy for the crustaceans, my father ordered a dish of two huge ones…

Hai Bing fried crabs

…that came up to over RM60.

All in all, dinner was great and certainly a fitting farewell to the old year…

  1. bring me there… especially the sea cucumber!

    No problem – my favourite Chinese restaurant, sure will not miss this place out.

      1. Malu malu dun need to eat. tiru macam saya… muka tembok Cina. LOL!

        Maybe that’s why she is so thin or the hubby ate up everything…but your case is different. Yours is a case of “Tham ciak, ciak bay pui!” LOL!!! ๐Ÿ˜€

      2. Coming to makan, malu means don’t get to eat so I better be VERY THICK skin wan. I WANT! I WANT!! especially the crab!!!

        The Hokkiens say: Say jee, go ka kee… If shy, star oneself…

      3. No need to have thick skin..just have the muka kesian with puppy eyes. Works everytime..muahaha

        You try puppy eyes with me, I’ll give you dog food… Muahahahahaha!!!! ๐Ÿ˜€

  2. Whoa… nice food…the crabs looks really yummy. I spent my new years eve with my kawans… ๐Ÿ˜€ we went makan makan at Tok Arab’s place.

    Yet to try the mid-eastern fare… Sighhhh!!!!! Nobody took me there when I was in KL, what to do? Sulk! Sulk! LOL!!! ๐Ÿ˜€

  3. fish fillet with almond flake really look yummy…:( make me hungry liao seeing all the food.

    Very very yummy….and anytime better than what I have had in KL or Penang – different lah when we go to “ciak tok” (eat table) there. RM1K – our RM350 would be much nicer already.

  4. Wow I would have been satisfied with just the 4 seasons alone, or perhaps one crab all to myself to boot! Wakakakaka
    +Ant+

    That one crab over RM30…but it was big. Very seldom see such big ones…and not those cheap and horrible farm-bred ones. Thick flesh, very nice, very very nice!

  5. Hahaha.. nice ! Is it the restaurant you brought Nicholas and I too ? the food looks darn amazing.. gosh i am hungry

    Yup! That’s the place… I’ve been there so many times since – I think I’m quite an authority on what’s good they have on their menu now… ๐Ÿ˜‰ Hungry? Poooooor thing! LOL!!! ๐Ÿ˜€

  6. Very cheap, Arthur!! Something very different from what I get here in IPOH… so… I have yet to confirm… still planning and thinking and decision is not made yet… ๐Ÿ™‚

    Haiyar…why so hard to make decision one? By then, SPM results already out lah – usually before the holidays…but I think that’s the time when people start applying left, right and centre. Maybe your girl can manage on her own…

    1. Claire, hope you will join us, it is going to be one AWESOME party in Sibu!! Arthur, Sibu got karaoke or not?

      My house, can karaoke…but no home theatre system – simple one only… Not pro, so simple one also ok lah… LOL!!!

  7. You MUST take me there when I come. I love all the food you tayang there. Makes me want to fly to Sibu NOW!!! I LOVE CRAB!!! I am a crabby old lady!! Scare die you or not???

    Let’s see when the time comes. If in season, will ask my missus to buy from the market and cook – hers also tak kalah…and so much cheaper this way. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  8. Looks like the fire is beginning to spark and lots of bloggers have indicated their interest going to Sibu. How about making a big 2012 party then?

    You’re coming or not? Text me and I let you know the dates. I hear the ticket only over RM60 one way…

  9. four season plus one?? is it the same place you went the other day you ordered the same dish?? but this one looks better, i mean the combination is more appropriate, haha!! :p

    Same…but the items differ. They will vary according to how much you pay per plate…and this time around they use a bigger round plate.

  10. Looks like an awesome place for dinner…something I would like a lot too. Love the four seasons + 1 dish and all the food looks really good. I miss eating at places like this in Sibu. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Another place for you when you come home for CNY – hopefully it will not be closed over the festive season…

  11. Nice dinner with all in the family…THUMBS UP!!!…. Arthur. Though all the food looks heavenly, I don’t want to be greedy. The fish is enough for me to go with a plate of piping hot rice.

    You are putting your bait out to get your bloggers friend to Sibu. Seems to have a good response from them.

    Unfortunately, you are not biting the bait – so near and yet so far. Call you so many times, still you do not want to come… ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

  12. Sir Arthur,

    It’s afternoon now and I’m hungry looking at ur food pic especially the one with almond slices. Me love almond!

    I was at a wedding dinner on new year’s eve. Went to see fireworks after that. Ethan enjoyed it max ๐Ÿ˜€

    I slept through the fireworks and firecrackers – lots in my neighbourhood…but not as terrible as Chinese New Year. Shudders!

  13. Interesting fried fish fillet! Never taste one before! Okay, got to go. Your food make me hungry and I am late for my lunch date! Lol

    LOL!!! Bon appetit! Enjoy your lunch… Not raining and flooding still, I hope.. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  14. Yes, just like my grandpa, now cannot walk properly, so he hardly follow us out for dinner. During my last trip back, we also order some food home..and everyone eat with him, he is happy to see the sons, daughter, and all the grandchildren and great great grandchildren all eat together.

    Four season look good, and so do the fish and other dish. Sea cucumber with beef? Oh, first time i saw this type of combination.

    Crabs!! The other day i just mention about crabs, saying so long have not go for crabbing. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ Now i have to find some kakis to go with me!

    Ya…I think it means a lot to these old people to have all their family members around them. Sad that many are not bothered to go home and spend more time with them…

    Hmmm…I’m sure you will have no problem getting kakis to go for crabs. There, Quay Po would love to go with you, I’m sure. Good chance for you to meet her and get acquainted. ๐Ÿ™‚

  15. The food look so scrumptious..and the four season + 1 will be more than enough for me.These few days don’t know why I so gian mo makan crab and here you are tayanging 2 humungous ones…look macam tanker pulak.I don’t think I have ever eaten beef tendon before..or maybe I have?..what’s the malay name for it,ah?

    Yum! Yum! But I thought you have huge mud crabs in NZ as well. I’ve seen on TV…or maybe that was Oz…with Kylie Kwong. Beef tendon – they usually have that in beef noodles if you’re having the special, beef tendon and stomach (the caterpillars, my daughter used to call them) – not just the meat. Dunno the Malay name. Chinese call them gu kin (cow’s urat).

  16. What a lot of yummy and scrumptious food to kick start the year of the dragon! hehehe..I likey all the food and reasonably priced too, I would say ๐Ÿ™‚

    Yes, that’s Sibu for you – very nice and cheap! ๐Ÿ˜‰
