On September 6th, my family celebrated the 24th anniversary of the birth of my little sister Natasha Yingshan Sexy Lai. We took her out to feast at Cafe TOO in Island Shangri-La. Cafe TOO has always been one of our families hands down favourite buffet place. We hadn’t been here in a while so it was a real treat to eat there for a special day! The food was deeelicious as expected but the only disappointment was that they didn’t have any oysters that day…damn fishermen!
Favourite dishes: mini Hainanese Chicken Rice, fresh lobster, made-to-order seared foie gras and scallops, Shanghainese station, crunchy papadums (!!) and double-boiled soup.
The Double-boiled soup! I loooooove Chinese soup…and aren’t these bowls SO freaking cute and scary at the same time?
My piggeh friends
Noodle bar fully equipped with fat chef dude!
yummm dim sum! Right in the middle of the photo in the back you can kinda spot the tiny little steamers for individual siu long baos!
omg mini Hainanese chicken rice! These were like mini portions..i think the rectangular plate was only like about A5 (half of letter) paper size!
And finally ninniez’s mini birthday cake!! I forgot what we were laughing at but it was so damn funny that..
she got a tummy ache from laughing tooo hard!
Happy birthday nanz!
Buttttttttt sad news everyone, unfortunately nanz has abandoned me and stranded me here in Hong Kong. Just yesterday she flew her little tuchus off to London where she’ll be taking a fashion journalism course at Central Saint Martins while her boyfriend masters the art of people’s ugly teeth all day. I’ll be twiddling my thumbs while I wait for PLN (poor little nanz) to return to HK in December! Hopefully time will go by fast! If anyone sees her on the street there, go say hi!
TAKE CARE NANZ AND DONT TAKE THE BUS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
