Started the day early. Say hi to Mr Santa.

It's our annual LittleOnes@work.
Bring the kids to work.

Lots of organizing, planning, shopping with the daddies and mummies in the committee.

With little cutie pie Adele. She is really a mini version of her pretty mummy Sarah. Gonna be a 小美ε₯³when she grows up. 😘😘

Look at her, so cute hor. 😍😍She's only 3 and her articulation is really πŸ‘ for her age.

K one last pic of the event liow. Rest of the pics were taken with my colleague's pro cam.

Met up with my hub's fren's for dinner.

They chose Xi Yan Shaw, the one-month old newly opened restaurant by celebrity chef Jacky.

Their festive menu

Tried these japanese tomatoes at Xi Yan private dining at Craig Road many many years back. Still rmbr how yummy it was.

This is the boss, celebrity chef Jacky.

Must say the food there is quite disappointing.

Crystal Jade is anytime better it.

Just like this carrot cake, so bland. Only the eggs is good.

Fried Kway teow.. So so only.

Okay this one is not bad, tropical fruits with sweet and sour prawns. πŸ˜‰

Fizzy lychee drink πŸ˜‹πŸ˜‹

δΈ‰θ›‹vege, again too bland πŸ˜”

Some pork patty..


Spring chicken

Service was pretty slow at Xi Yan. Think they are seriously understaffed. Only saw 3 staff serving the front operations.

This dish took quite a while to be served.

Even when we were asking for bill, it took quite a while. They took my hub's credit card. We waited another 10mins and the bill is still not here. Told the staff and they printed out the receipt and asked us to verify the bill, which was something which we had done before giving them the credit card.

Such boo boo lor

I ordered this, their signature 担担青. Ordered the dried and vegetarian version. They have the meat version as well. Love the flavor! πŸ˜‹πŸ˜‹πŸ‘

Think this casual dining Xi Yan kinda affect the reputation of the renowned Xi Yan. Hopefully they will buck up eventually.

Originally we wanted to try out their desserts. In the end we decided to adjourne to somewhere else as we were worried the desserts will be disappointing as well.

Lychee drink again. πŸ˜…

Cutie Cocoa'deer πŸ˜‹

Happy belated bday Jean!

These friends knew my hub since their poly days.

#throwback 6 years ago when I first met them.

Showed them this pic and they kept laughing how skinny my hub was then πŸ˜‚πŸ˜…
