Lorna invited me to the Success Richmond Women Club Christmas Dinner at the Continental Seafood Restaurant on the 10th December, 2015.
It is also an appreciation night for the committee members who has served for 20, 10 and 6 years.
We were seated in a private room with 6 tables of attendees. There was a draw for table prize where no one will go home empty handed.
A variety of sauces for different dishes.
First course of BBQ duck, cold cut meat, BBQ pork, Bean Curd Wrap and seaweed.
Deep Fried Prawns wrapped in Bean Curd Skin were served piping hot.
The squid was tender in this Stir Fried Squid with Celery.
Fish Maw Soup goes well with vinegar.
Stir Fried Prawns and Steamed Broccoli. The prawns were big and it was a generous serving.
Steamed Chicken topped with fried garlic. The chicken was on the bland side.
Fish Fillets served two ways; deep fried and braised; gives a contrasting texture.
Braised Shitake Mushroom and Abalone Mushroom over a bed of Bok Choy.
Then, there was a break for performance. Two of the attendees performed a Chinese folk dance from Xinjiang. They were very graceful.
A guest performed the Gangnam Style dance.
A game of cups stacking competition for table prize. Earlier on, there was a Soduku competition for table prize also.
Fried Sticky Rice for filler dish towards the end of the banquet.
Dessert was Red Bean Soup.
The night ended with some dances led by the Gangnam style dancer and karaoke for those who wants to stay behind.
It was a fun night. Thank you, Lorna for inviting me.
