wee woon summarised the evening for all -“Thanks chef, for a wonderful evening and the good food! Much appreciated!Thanks YF, for the washing up. If I were a woman, I would envy your wife! Thanks HAB for the big cockles! They tasted very juicy!Thanks THK for the durian!

and I may add – thank you so much YF for washing up the dishes etc
everyone loved the crackling blistered roast pork, very tender and juicy inside, made one of my best roast pork this evening haha!
cockles were so large and fresh and poached nicely…excellent with the chilli dips!
all the dishes were good! everyone especially liked the claypot rice, so tasty & flavourful…
& the ter kar and tanhoon prawns too…perfect texture and flavours…
chicken and fish head also good & delicious
& I can see the spinach was in short supply very quickly….
we had a really fun evening! wonderful get together and fellowship of old RI schoolmates & bros…
