Dinner @ Jurong Golf Club

From my previous post, most of you will think that I had Japanese for dinner the first day in Singapore. Ha ha. Sorry, I purposely put that pic to mislead some of you. We actually went to a Chinese restaurant in the club. Chinese New Year mah. The restaurant name is Fu Lin Men.

The first dish to arrive is Yee Sang. This is the first 'lou sang' I have during CNY. In Singapore, the waiting staff will mix the ingredients for you while saying a good greeting for each ingredient. I didn't the restaurant here don't do that. Mum says the yee sang taste like the one in Malaysia 15 years ago, which is hard to find that taste now.

Next up is the sharkfin with crab meat soup. Ruth like it so much that she even finished her dad's sharkfin soup. The sharkfin soup taste normal but did see a few strand of fin.

Next one is prawn with cornflakes. Don't know the real name of this dish because I didn't see the menu. My uncle did the ordering. The prawn is fresh and I've never eaten prawn cook like this before. Very tasty.

The next one is roast chicken but I didn't take the picture because I think it's a very normal dish. The table next to us changed to roast chicken to Beijing roast duck. My uncle ordered from a set dinner.

The next dish is "Hou Si Fatt Choy" which consist of 'fatt choi' and 'hou si' (dried oyster). Nothing to shout about this dish just normal. The dried oyster is very smooth and meaty though. My sister sapu (cleaned up) most of them.

Then came the steam fish Thai style. Sorry, don't know what kind of fish is that. Very nice especially the sauce. Have to order another bowl of rice. LOL.

The second last dish, my sister's favourite, 'Gon Xiu Yee Min' (stirred fried noodle). She had three bowls if not mistaken. I only had one bowl because I already had two bowl of rice. I'm not fan of yee min, so I think it tasted just as any other yee min.

For dessert, it is red bean with tong yun. Inside the tong yun there's black sesame, yummy. After, the dessert Ruth don't want to sit in her chair and started to stand on the chair. My sister and brother-in-law took Noah to the toilet to change his diaper. So, as Ruth's uncle, I took her down and let her stand on the floor. It was a mistake because once she's step on the floor, she started running around the whole restaurant and I'm chasing after her all around the restaurant. Like a big monkey chasing a small monkey. If I put her back to her seat, she will start to shout and cry. So, I've to chase after her until her parents come back from the toilet.

Lastly, have to thank my uncle for this dinner. Nothing like eating a meal with family.
