On our table

We had a simple dinner at home on Thursday evening since only us and my in-laws.  BIL and SIL and family did not come back this year.

Ngoh hiang wrapped in lettuces are the only green we ate *wink*

Our menu for the reunion dinner.  Missing the vegetable dishes as MIL forgot to cook.  Lol! She had a tiring morning as still need to work in the canteen, so this year we did not have an extravagant menu list unlike previous year.  But I like my reunion dinner. Simple and home-y.  Let me introduce the food to you. *wink*

Herbal chicken - very tender and herbs tasted mild

This assortment of Chinese sausage, siew mai and roasted pork belly is from a famous seller in Kapit who has been making and selling this for years

Hubby's gu gu who made some ngoh hiang for us.  I love her ngoh hiang, very fragrant as she added some 5-spice in the meat

Nothing much to say about this lotus leaf pork trotter. The taste did not go into the meat, so rather plain

Abalone chicken soup, good for well being and skin! Lol! You know, who drank a lot yesterday...

The star of the dinner - empurau head, steamed.  Sweet and tender.

If you wonder how it looks like. This is the head before being chopped and steamed!

You are so lucky to get to eat the expensive empurau fish all the time. I seldom see this lotus leaf pork trotter dish. Gong Xi Fa Cai!
