Mooncake Congress 2007

Event: Mooncake Congress 2007
Venue: Sunplaza Park
Official Car: Lamborgini :p
Date: One bo-liao Saturday nite just before Mid-autumn Festival
Attendees: One bo-liao group of people with "arsonistic" tendencies (pls see proof:

Attendees were told to bring along a lantern and JUST ONE mooncake but response was overwhelming! Almost everyone bought ONE BOX so there was waaaay too many mooncakes for just about 12 people! Faintz..... Event was graced by many highly acclaimed n renowned brands with the likes of Goodwood Park,Intercontinental, Fullerton, Bakerzin, and not to mention, some lesser known but equally yummy brands like Marc & Leonard - courtesy of Mr & Mrs Sim.

Finishin ALL the mooncake was mission impossible but we did try to sample all the flavours. I think among us, we had each taken about one mooncake each, with all the different flavours combined....scary sia....So it was a good thing we had a BIG POT of TEA to aid in digestion. (sorry, forgot to take pix of the BIG POT of TEA)

The event was most successful, with its primary objective (to burn lanterns) well met - see ghostly pix of burning lanterns below:

Next time this thing is going to happen - nobody should be bringing mooncakes other than the organiser. Overdosage on mooncakes is not fun at all.

Look out for the next up-coming event: BBQ @ PA Holiday Flats......


Checked out JY's Friend's ice-cream palour after dinner cuz Henry wanted to give us a treat. Business seemed quite good for a Thursday nite at 10pm. Ice-cream were home-made and the flavours were quite interesting.....nutella, horlicks, banana coffee, jasmine, milo, tiramisu, green tea with red bean, teh tarik, black sesame n was there chempadek?....etc.

Verdict - nt bad. Fav were the banana coffee and horlicks. Price is rather reasonable too, wif a 8-scoop deal at 17.90. Think we were greedy and ordered too many scoops for just 5 of us. Dat's y I felt i didn;t realli enjoyed the icecream - didn;t do justice to it, guilty man. Shall go back again.

Though i shouldn;t be saying this when he treated us the ice-cream but here's Henry tryin to imitate the cute smiles of the eskis on the glass:

Sun With Moon @ Central

Had dinner at Sun With Moon with my colleagues on Thursday. Great food n great company......kinda made up for e crappy times at work these 2 months.

Presentation of the food was really pretty, jus check out the sashimi - simply tastes as good as it looks.

The oysters.....muz try!

Grilled beef with foie gras.....

And how elaborate can chawanmushi get??? Well....actualli if it costs S$7.80 for one had better looked this way. It's realli realli "slides-down -your-thoat" smooth....

The grilled stuff. Kushi mori, presented like ikebana, with the sticks stuck onto a piece of sweet potato and the wonderful tepanyaki beef tenderloin cubes.

The hokkaido seafood "claypot" rice was nice but u can give the kani (crab) one a miss.....So boring till i stopped once i finished my crab meat which was the only redeeming factor of this dish. And you can give the soba a miss too. Not fantastic.

Desserts didn;t disappoint at all. The tofu cheesecake that came in a birdcage was heavenly. The birdcage was quite an innovative presentation idea. It led us into a brain-storming session of "birdcage ideas" while we finished up the green tea tiramisu and the branded sweet potato tart thingy named "Mont Blanc". Both were nice as well but i liked the cheesecake the most.

Overall it was a truly great place to dine at, especially so when the bill's on company's acccount...haha.
