 It's a 8-course meal at RM888++ per table 

1. 鴻運七彩魚生
Prosperity Yee Sang Salmon Fish 

We started off the meal with Prosperiry Yee Sang Salmon Fish.It was great moments to be with closed friends to “lou sang”. The Yee Sang had abundance of fresh salmon slices, it tasted very good.

2. 大展鴻圖翅

This is one of the best shark's fin soup I ever had.They have double boiled village chicken with dried scallop, shark's fin and ginseng which is really so impressive. As compare to the other place, I will rank for them 99 percent. One more percent is because I just drank a bowl which is definitely not enough for me loll. 

3. 金雞來報喜
Duo of Chicken- Crispy Golden Pa Fa & Wok Fried Chicken with Strawberry Sauce 

The chef also did well with a new creation by serving two different types of chicken, one with The Pa Fa Chicken slices and another one is wok fried. Thumbs up! The Pa Fa Chicken slices had the texture of almost similar to roasted pork (Swez Brasserie is pork free) with the crunchiness coming from some added almond flakes.

4. 好事定發財
Braised Sea Cucumber with Dried Oyster, Sea Moss, Flower Mushrooms & Broccoli

Whenever I saw broccoli, it remind me about Shelyn because this is her all time favorite. So brocooli= Shelyn, Shelyn= Broccoli. HAHAHAHA! There was also some braised sea cucumber, dried oyster and sea moss added it. The overall dish was filled with unique flavors.

5. 彩龍喜迎春
Stir Fried King Prawn Balls with Macadamia nuts

Combination of Stir Fried King Prawn Balls with Macademia nuts! Like what Chinese people used to say:" 色,香,味俱全". It’s another thumbs up for the effort in taste and creativity here.

6. 年年慶有餘
Steamed Grouper with Chinese Herbs & Vegetables 

To further extend my excitement, "Steamed Grouper with Chinese Herbs & Vegetables" was servedThis would be one dish that would symbolize the abundance in wealth. I love the fresh texture of the fish plus the sweetness from the added mushroom slices and wolfberries.

7. 八仙齊報喜
Chef’s Special Yam Rice Wrapped in Lotus Leaves 

The lotus leaves infused flavor onto the rice plus some added deep fried yam dices and some added dried ingredients was amazing flavorful to my liking.

8. 家家慶團圓
Double Boiled Dried Longan & Red Dates with Glutinous Rice Balls 


To end the meal with some sweet memories of the occasion, we were served with the Double Boiled Dried Longan & Red Dates with Glutinous Rice Balls (家家慶團圓). The black sesame filled tang yuan (glutinous rice balls) complemented well with the sweetness form the double boiled dried longan and red dates.

Advertorial:

I love to complete my outlook with sporty sunglasses which makes me look fashionable. I am a person that very obsessed to casual look, so I was planning to look for a new pair of sunglasses to match my New Year outfit.  Just in time I received an email from "GlassesOnline Malaysia", the first on-line eyewear retailer in Malaysia. I've been selected as one of their "style advisor", so they were sending me an image of a pair of sunglasses which suit my style and make a great outfit I would recommended for Chinese New Year. So let's find out what's is trending in 2014.



Wondering how to put on a fashion look? Its all start out with a cool sunglasses. There's a couple of trick! First pick your favourite outfit, you can go for black as black is always the coolest colour for me. Then accessorize with the latest pair of sunglasses, that's simple.

IMAGINE....HOW WE SURVIVE WITHOUT SUNGLASSES???

And now I would like to aid you on your own way to picking the best choice of sunglasses that will make you perfectly look fashionable. Hopefully the collage below can give you a better idea :)


First Look


Second Look

Chunky, oval and matte sunglasses

These are sure to give any outfit a retro and stylish finish. We must add, this is the perfect way to hide away any puffy-ness from a late night! A black matte finish will give an air of sophistication while sassy red will give any outfit a loud oomph.

The Oh So Feminine Cats Eye 

Lately, the 50′s styled glasses are everywhere – this only says one thing: this trend is here to stay! They are the right kind of dramatic and exude a subtle elegance.

Add a little detail

A little detail has never hurt anyone, in fact, detail is what makes you unique – if you are brave enough, if you dare, find something just as unique as you are.
If you have a square face, try something with round hues so as to soften and balance everything out. Heart shaped faces on the other hand can stick to over sized sunnies with either a gold chain rimming the sides, or soft pearls neatly stuck on the corners.

Red hair done by Hair Story

Finally I'am done with my torturing finals and glad to say that there's no finals anymore in my life! Now onward,I am more flexible in updating my blog and enjoy holidays like nobody business. Anyway for those of you who don't know yet, I dyed my hair RED!



The only one photo I have, tragedy. Now my red color faded within a month and turns into brown again wtf, I just so bored with my copper brown. So I decided to bleach my hair on this coming Chinese New Year. I aware that bleaching is a "vital" stage for your desired colors, at least once in a life time right? So just stay tuned while I am researching for my next desires color lolll.

I get my RED hair done in Penang International Hair Story which is located at E-gate. It is a very well known international hair fashion industry. In their saloon, they provided a very comfortable customer waiting areas with magazines and refreshments of premium beverages to keep you entertained while waiting for your turn. I got so anxious before I dyed my hair, I always have phobia in dye-ing my hair which sound pretty insane. -.- Luckily my professional hair stylish was so patient and consulted me, so eventually I picked RED. WHY? Because there's no other option loll. The most common colors list: copper brown, red and ashy green. Somemore coward person like me don't have the guts to bleach my hair and go for the other "super chio"color, now regret.
