Early Reunion Dinner

Posted by Dawn at Monday, February 12, 2007
Today is my family reunion dinner with our relatives including my god sister, Chloe and her husband, Chung. They are both close to us as they do not have family members here in Singapore. Chloe is from HK while Chung is from Malaysia. So, my parents became their god parents. Chloe is the same age as me and was my dad's physiotherapist is SGH, who also happens to be attending the same church as me. Chung is a doctor, both husband and wife from the medical field. My mum invited them over to her place for dinner...potluck session. We had lots of great food as usual.

My mum prepared roast duck, fishballs, ngor hiang, mixed vegetable bean curd dish with fa cai and mushrooms(one of my favourites). My relatives brought kweh pai tee (one of the regular dish brought), fresh huge prawn fruit salad, yu sheng, fried crab claws (with real crab meat inside), and prawn crackers. My mum thought it might not be enough and as usual, she prepares more than what we can eat by ordering 2 "curry in the bun" delivery- one curry chicken and one curry mutton. Sigh...too much.



Anyway, we all tucked in and enjoyed. However, CT couldnt join us because of his shift work. So, I had to take away his dinner for him. After a sumptuous dinner, we celebrated my uncle's birthday.

My uncle is already 70 years old and is retired, spending time with his fishes and orchids at home. He has a huge collection of orchids which I was totally amazed when I went his house.

In the background of the picture are Baby Janine (my niece), my mum and pamela (my sis in law).

This is how tall Janine is at 1 year old. She loves to walk up the stairs on her own and stand here overlooking the dining area where the people are to 'scare' them.
