HH's Wedding Dinner, West Lake, Sunway Resort Hotel

December, I think is a good month for the Chinese to get married because so many of my friends are getting marry this month. So, early this month, I was a heng dai (brother/ku li/front liner/bodyguard) for my friend of many years (since high school) HH. I literally have to eat shit (made of chocolate and banana) out of a pampers when we go to get the bride from the hotel room. You know lah, there's always games, traps, barricades, quiz, and etc before the bridegroom can even see his bride's face.

Warning: Gross picture ahead

Chocolate Banana Cake?

Warning: Tidak Ditanggung Halal

Okay. Gross stuff aside. Let us go to some real good food that I had during the wedding. First off is the roast whole pig waiting for us in HH's house after we pick up the bride and the chi muis. I personally tell the chef to cut me a "sa lei tuk" (I think it's the upper pig shoulder, I might be wrong) (buttock according to Lisan. Thanks.). This is like the best cut of a roast pig. The skin is so crispy, the whole piece just melted in my mouth. OMG. The best roast pig I've eaten so far. Maybe it's because, the sifu just started to cut it and it was just out from the roaster not long.

My "sa lei tuk" on top of my hakka yong tao fu. My friend purposely go to find to caterer from a hakka village.

Halal from here onwards.

Fast forward to the evening. I was the PA guy but there's still time in between that I can quickly wallop the dishes. The usual 4 dishes combination is not usual at all. This the first time I see lobster salad in this dish in a wedding dinner.

There's also big Japanese dried scallop with spinach. One whole big dried scallop. My "yan ching" (money gift) might not be enough for the whole feast :p

Next up, as usual is the shark fin but in this dinner, nothing is the usual at all. Here, there's no diluted and thinly sliced shark fin, instead we have a generous amount of crab meat and a whole pieces of 'Chong Bao' shark fin. The crab meat and shark fin is enough to filled up two bowls for each of us. (Okay, our table is 1 person short but still.)

They also provide beansprout and ham slices as optional condiment to the shark fin soup. This is the first time I see this comes with the shark fin soup.

Ham Slices & Bean Sprouts

Next is a scallop dish again but this time it is fresh scallop. The size of the scallop is quite big too. The mushroom is also very fresh, I especially like the crunchiness of the lotus root. So sweet and crunchy.

After that is the steamed fish. Nothing to unusual about that except that it's very fresh. The sauce also quite good.

Steamed Bamboo Fish in Hong Kong Style

Feels so like biting it right now.

Next is one of my favourite dish of the night, lucky I eat it while it's still warm. Why? Because there's cheese in the dish. Big ass tiger prawn in cheese. The sauce is so cheesy and creamy. The prawn is fresh and succulent. The prawn head is exceptionally distinct. It's too hard to describe.

I was eager to dig into the prawn hence this picture is taken very quickly.

This is the last dish that I was able to snap a picture. Were busy going around to drink with the guests when the bridegroom and bride went to "geng chao" (toasts to the guests). It look plain but the ingredient used is not so plain. Chilean abalone and sea cucumber. Nice.

The rest of the dishes are:

Braise Ee-Fu Noodle with Sliced Chicken (Not bad)

Sweetened "Bai Nian Hao Hou" with Lotus Seed (Normal)

Chinese Pastry in Two Varieties (Normal)

This is one of the best wedding dinner that I've ever eaten. Lastly, I want to congratulate HH and WC again. Fast, fast make babies.
