Dinner at Jaya 33
We had a lovely family dinner. Now it may not seem like a special thing but we're not big on family dinners as a general rule. So you can appreciate that the gathering was unique for at least 2 reasons; the last time we met was for a wedding. And dinner in Petaling Jaya is adventurous by our standards. Aunty J celebrated her birthday together with us. Auntie M baked her a cake. And we all got a lovely meal with exchange on family news this evening. And now for the food review. The peking duck was lovely. Much better than the one at Damas. It came with the crispy skin and some tender meat.
The vegetable dish was nice and green. I'm not sure what the veg was. It tasted nice and garlicky which is how I like it.
This was gorgeous. It looks like any other slab of meat but it was succulent and tasty right down to the middle.
Noodles were good but because it was the last dish I can't rave about it much.
Home made carrot cake
Auntie M's carrot cake was moist and not too sweet. I love the marzipan carrots:) I would blog more but I have a lecture to prepare....last-minute as usual. I never learn. Boohoo
The name of this blog was shamelessly pinched from that wonderful programme starring Joanne Lumley and Jeniffer Saunders. Thank you for dropping by...
Most of the pictures are my own. When I can remember ( which is only lately) I credit the folks whose pictures I blog. Apologies to the owners of earlier pictures used in this blog. Back in the dark ages, I wasn't as tech-savvy as now.

God if you can't make me thin, at least make my friends fat.
