Wedding Food Tasting: Round 1

So last weekend's trip to KL turned out to be super rushed cos The Fiancé and I had to make it back to Penang in time for Saturday night Food Tasting dinner at one of the two hotels we'll be having our wedding dinners at. Sped from one corner of the island (where the airport was), all the way to another corner of the island (where the hotel was located). Phew!


Signage right outside the private room we were provided.


Food was alright I suppose. (Although The Fiancé reckons he'll want a plate of Char Koay Kak after our wedding dinner. -_-''') But it was better than I expected lah. I mean, at the end of the day, it is hotel food after all. And you shouldn't really expect much from hotel food no matter how much you've gotta pay for it. Haha. But yeah, our food tasting definitely turned out better than some of the other 8-course wedding banquets I've tried.




No pictures of the menu or the dishes though.

*cue suspenseful music*

 Haha. After wedding only I share lah, ok.


Anyway, the first few dishes took much too long to come out so... I got distracted and started taking pictures of the super bling-thing chandelier hanging above me.




It glittered like a million stars.
So pretty! Instant chandelier love. <3




Anyway, I think this is all I can share with you regarding the food tasting. Haha. *potong stim* Sorry lah. Just bear with 2 more months of censored blog posts, ok? Before you know it, I'll be back with the regular tell-all-spill-all updates already. Anyway, believe me, this diam-diam-censor-all thing is killing ME more than it's killing YOU! Suffer wei! =p


 Sneak peak of the menu. Censored, of course. =p


p/s: Had to pixelate The Fiancé's name for *cough* safety purposes *cough cough* (his words, not mine) cos he believes that once his identity is revealed, you guys will find reason to hunt him down, kidnap him, rob him, maul him, then leave him to bleed to death at the side of a deserted road. -_-'''

Except that i can't wait till AFTER u got married to be able to see his face haha! (I hope)

Reminds me of Wilson from 'Home Improvement'. The obscured bottom half of his face always drive me crazy LOL.

– Haha. Ah Chong ah!!!

Nah, not just the two of us. We had 2 tables with separate menus to choose from. And 2 places in Penang cos the in-laws wanted separate dinners – one for the bride's side, one for the groom's side. Some custom thing.

When you guys doing yours?


ATTN: neena
– Hahaha. I'm glad you like the mystery cos sometimes... I get tired of the extra Photoshop time censoring takes. HAHA. But yeah... some mystery is good sometimes. Don't know if I'll reveal who he is after the wedding though. Maybe not on Tinki Talks. Whoops. =p

Eh actually horrr... not sure if you know this or not but as a general rule avoid steamed fish for wedding banquets.

Because they don't actually steam the fish, but boil them one wtf.

Where got so free steam so many for you worr right or not?

Pam Song said...

ATTN: 陳一豪
– Issit??? Big fat liars, they all. -_-''' But usually got steamed fish wan wor. Only the sauce tak sama nia. :-/ What did your bro have for his banquet?

Pam Song said...

ATTN: Jin
– Ahh, I see I see. Happening ah, your dad? Hahahaha.

ATTN: neena
– HAHAHA. You'll get silhouettes. Ok ah? HAHAHA. I'll try to make a special request to the photographer to take a silhouette pic for the blog. =p

陳一豪 said...

@Spam Ong & HJC - Yeah its actually true one. While it might not be true for all hotels, apparently a lot of restaurants do that.

While I haven't seen it personally, my brother's FIL (who has some hotel connections) shared that little blurb with us.

My bro had fried fish.

Using stacked bamboo baskets will result in uneven heat distribution when the steam loses energy and condenses on the baskets / fish.

neena said...

haha! bolelaaa...=)

Pam Song said...

ATTN: 陳一豪
– Wa... sure bo? Hmmm... Macam pro nia the comment. Anyway, too late to reconsider. Plus, there wasn't fried fish in the list to choose from anyways. Maybe HJC can reconsider lah.


ATTN: neena
– Haha. Awesome! You can look forward to that then! Along with pictures of hands and backs of heads. HAHA.

Jin said...
