Ok so I was talking about the reunion dinner at the sushi restaurant. It didn't happen because they were closed! I told you so Dad!! He didn't think they will close for new year's eve because it was japanese-oriented, but it's precisely that they ARE japanese-oriented that they needn't open because all the chinese restaurants are. Anyhow we ended up with overpriced fish & chips on the reunion dinner day. We did try to enter some chinese ones but all the restaurants are pre-booked and full-house lol.

Finally on the 2nd day of new year we managed a place at our favourite chinese retro restaurant. It was full inside so they had pitched a makeshift tent on the outside and it wasn't as pleasant an atmosphere but anyhow: The photo above showed what we had; Crispy skin roast chicken (yummy I wonder how they made it so tender on the inside), Yam tower with prawns and other vege, Tofu with mushrooms & vege, Kailan (broccoli leaves) with sliced fish. Ignore that bowl of soup over there, it's sharks fin lol.
