Hi All

We all have had a wonderful monthly gathering yesterday afternoon.

Since this is still the Chinese New Year season, we opt for a special occasion by having lunch at Kelvin’s Sentosa Siloso Beach Resort instead of the regular afternoon tea session.

Thanks, Kelvin for the warm hospitality and a sumptuous meal!

Here are what we have:

We started with a Lohei, a Chinese New Year custom here which includes raw fish tossed with mixed vegetable strips. It is just like the Western salad except for the raw fish, which in our case has been substituted with abalone.

This is followed by a personal Penchai each, a concoction created by the chef of the resort.

 Again, Penchai is a traditional Chinese dish, especially popular among the Cantonese.

It is a soup that comprises of many different ingredients such as fish maw, mushroom, sea cucumber, shrimp, cabbage, carrot, shredded dry scallops, lotus root and radish. It is like the Chinese version of the western casserole.

Then came the main star of the day, a steamed Sultan fish garnished simply with spring onions and some shredded carrots, freshly caught from the Resfleshond! The flesh was tender and taste really fresh!

Next comes the lightly fried mushrooms with asparagus to clear the palate.

This is followed by seared beef cubes torched over a slate of Himalayan salt, served right at the side of the table.

The meal ended with a handmade red bean paste with lotus seeds dessert.

All these were drowned down with some white wine, courtesy of Johnson.

Mr Ng, Kelvin’s father was also there to join us for the occasion.

Next, it’s bottle viewing time! Kelvin showed us some rare bottles and some interesting automatons. Although not snuff bottles but one of them also served as a snuff box.

Of course, there are many bottles from members as well!

We all have a wonderful time filling our tummies as well as a feast for the eyes!

Wish you were here?  Grin Grin
