homecooked lunch 

my old RI friend moved into a new 3-storey 4500sq ft freehold strata house recently, and he invited us over for lunch & housewarming on 23.11.2016. ^^

good location & nice environment, very high ceiling like 4.5m in the hall, very good folding sliding doors, & ducted aircon in hall plus cassette in nice & bright basement etc.

his helper cooked lunch for 10 of us – 6 dishes, very competent dishes indeed.
