On Saturday, my relatives (on Mother’s side) gathered at CHIJMES to celebrate Grandmother’s 80th birthday. I found it extremely odd at this so-called sudden celebration because as far as I’ve lived for 20 years, my family has never celebrated her birthday before.
We had (if I remember correctly) a 10-course dinner at Lei Garden.
Lei Garden at CHIJMES:
Top Cantonese restaurant, Lei Garden offers an innovative, elaborate and extensive menu with over 120 dishes ranging from dim sum, nutritious tonic soups, sharksfin, abalone and birds’ nest delicacies to excellent seafood, meat and vegetarian favourites, full of wholesome gourmet flavour.
There are altogether 11 private dining rooms with a total capacity of 150 guests. There is a two-tier aquarium built from ceiling to floor.
My uncle booked one of the private dining rooms on the second floor with three tables. I found it unfair that Allan brought Ling without telling me and Jolene. If he did, we would have brough our SOs too.
Pictures to come—next time.
