Back to School...

Yes!!! It's finally over! I was just blogging about how nervous wreck I was about attending this theme dinner (which is "Back to School" btw) function with hubby and I'm so glad it's over!!

* A note of thanks to Wei Yun - you make me feel welcome and at ease... thanks and congrats for winning those awards btw!

So below are some pictures I managed to snap in my midst of me happily gobbling up all the foods being served my shyness...

In case you can't read it, it's Hilton Petaling Jaya. It's about 10-15 minutes ride by car from our house if there is no traffic jam.

This is the place where the dinner function is held... it's actually the front cover of the menu for the dinner...





And this is the menu for the dinner. The sea bass dish is nice, and so is the stewed broccoli with black mushroom & "Tau Kan" (kinda like those flatten up soft tofu skin)
.

Below is a quick snap shot of the tables around us. Not sure whether you can see the people here wearing their school costumes but they are a cool bunch of people...

I mean, some of them are already like 40-50 years old but they wore those primary school clothing!

And I can see some of them are even sporting enough to buy new uniforms just for this dinner!

Anyway, what happened during the dinner were:
- speeches
- talent show contests
- award presentations
- eat, eat, and eat

So, as you can see, there's no need to mingle around with people other than those from your own table and I can say I had a pretty good time tonight!

FYI, we didn't finish the whole course - we left after the "Stir Fried Seawater Prawns Szechuan Style" dish as it's already 9.30pm (we left home at about 7pm) and we're kinda worried about Ben terrorising and bullying and MIL. Hubby was saying he's getting full and had to go off already and I was like 'Whaaaaa.... I'm just starting to enjoy my food, and I think my tummy is feeling happy now and you want to leave?!!' but then, when I think about my little monster Ben at home with MIL, ok ok... time to go...

On the way back, hubby got a call from his client asking him for help with some documents in PDF.

I suddenly saw my favourite cake shop, Secret Recipe and I flapping my hands up and down pointed out excitedly to hubby (he's still talking with the client btw) and he made a U-turn and stopped by the cake shop so that I can order a slice of my favourite Choc Mud Cake for take-away!

Oh!! Look at that glorious piece of heavenly cake! Yum yum!!

What a nice way to end the night... :D

I'm glad you had a good time :) Miss you guys towards the end. The dessert was pretty good.

See I told you it's just a bunch of silly people having a good time. A few more dinners like this, you will be a pro in no time :)

It was nice seeing you Jenny :) Wish we had more time to talk about parenting. Next time lah....
