Just finished a wedding dinner at Ban Heng.. BURP.
I think it’s time to work out more regularly. And eat lesser. My dresses are tighter! 😦 perhaps I should run everyday during lunch for the next 2 weeks until my gym membership ends?
I need to get a good bikini body by my Feb Phuket trip!
Ok back to the wedding lol.
Hui Mee and I met at Harbourfront Breadtalk at about 8pm and we found our way to Ban Heng quite easily by reading the signs inside the mall.
Both of us haven been to Chinese restaurant weddings for many years – when I stepped inside I was greeted by a squarish ballroom with high ceilings. The restaurant was quite nicely decorated. The staff serving us were a couple of aunties speaking in mandarin/ dialect 🙂 I find them better than hotel banquet staff at times!
The second march in happened after the fourth or fifth course. Then the emcee (who was outsourced and pretty good I feel!) played some games with the couple. What’s good about the emcee is that he was able to converse in English, mandarin and hokkien, which made all of us feel very comfortable and Singaporean haha.
the whole night sort of brought me back to the past. Hard to explain 🙂
And we stayed till the last dish which came out so late – yam paste! My most favourite!
Ahh here’s the menu 🙂 all 9 courses were very good. And it’s much cheaper than hotel! Of course hotel ambience is more.. High class? But holding wedding in Chinese restaurants does have its pros too – u get quality food at more reasonable prices and the atmosphere can be very good too 😉
