Wedding Dinner that I know nobody

I was not invited to this wedding
I didn't know the bride or the groom
My uncle and cousins were invited, but the twins didn't want to attend
So, I'm replacing the twins, which mean taking up 2 places

Anyway, congratulations to Brian Kerk and Deborah Ooi
May you live happily ever after

Venue: Renaissance Hotel Ballroom

I didn't know anyone there, so I tried to online with my phone searching for wireless
It is a big hotel, of course they have wireless every spot I stand
No, I was totally wrong!
No wifi detected in the toilet!

I could detect the wifi in the ballroom, but it said RM36.80 per hour
Damn you!
(YJ, borrow your signature words for a moment)


The lovey dovey swans ice sculpture
We had pre-dinner and canapé at 7pm
These people crowding this place are all SUPER rich
The way those aunties people dress, drink and social! 

I only get to talk to a few people that my uncle and cousin introduced to me
Most people there not my age, generation gap!


The camerawoman


My uncle and cousins' names were reserved under table number 20
Somewhere quite to the front and the so-called red carpet


Menu of the day!
I'll talk about the food soon
(Just keep reading)


Our gifts
The small bronze box filled with fruit cake, some get chocolate
The right one, I like this, it is a soap!
The groom's family works in United Plantation, where my aunt worked last time
So, soap is one of their product made from the palm oil 


The stage and cakes


Uncle and cousin, Qi Tyng


The "Leong Qi" - Qi Tyng & Qi Wen (me)


Woohoo, I asked for the red wine
Those who saw my Facebook status, the waiter gave me a weird stare when I asked him the red wine
Perhaps I looked like kind of underage compared to the other guests there
(Like I said before, most of the guests were not my age)


They served chinese tea for everyone in very nice classy tea cup


Something to chew on before the dinner
Prawn crackers


Renaissance's Five Happiness Combination Platter
Like any other wedding dinner, this is always the first dish
I like the one far right, the fried dumpling
Others are prawn, crab, abalone mushroom with asparagus


Braised Shark's Fin Soup with Enoki Mushroom and Sun-dried Scallops
Well-cooked!
Not fishy and I wish to get another bowl

Oh ya, each table will be served by one waiter in charge
For our table, I would like to thank Mr Abbas for serving us and he was among the most efficient waiter there
We already start eating while other waiters still scooping for their guests


Roasted Crispy Chicken with Spicy Szechuan Broth and Golden Sesame Seeds
I would like it if it was more crispy and the not much of Szechuan taste 
Prefer it to be more spicy
But the golden sesame seeds was a good blend!


Steamed Patin Fish with Sliced Ginger and Chinese Parsley
I'm not a fan of parsley
The fish is smooth and most importantly, fresh!
I love the gravy damn much

Seldom get to eat fish if I'm in my hostel

I forgot to take the picture of the Tiger Prawns with Spicy Garlic and Ginger
The prawns were juicy 
I guess I was too excited because prawns are my top favourite


Braised Mushroom, Fungi Abalone with Dried Scallop and Vegetable
No comment on this
I guess I'm lucky because Mr Abbas gave me the biggest mushroom there, I love mushroom!


Braised Ee-Fu Noodles with Mushroom and Crabmeat
It tasted quite bland and I couldn't find the mushroom and crabmeat


Warm Sweetened Red Bean Paste with Lotus Seed
This is concentrated!
Non-sticky but the taste was more than enough to blow you off
Not a lotus seed lover, but good combinations


Wedding Fancy Duets
Cute!
The one on the left was jelly-like filled with red bean paste
The one on the right was filled with kaya
Love the sesame, and a lot too!


I finished the red wine but the chinese tea remains untouched!


Love

Yeah, it's really frustrating why some hotels are so ungenerous, better don't provide wifi then asking customers to pay! -.- Anyways, tea is good for digestion after eating (:
