Dimsum lunch @ Yan Palace

Steamed "longevity peach" buns

And so we had a family lunch to celebrate father-in-law’s birthday. We had dimsum at old-school Cantonese restaurant Yan Palace. Didn’t realize that it’d already been 4 years since our last visit. Am happy to report that the quality of the dimsum is consistent with what we had previously (thumbs up for consistency!). Although prices…

Imperial Treasure Super Peking Duck @ Paragon

Our Peking duck being carved up

This year, my birthday was one day before Mother’s Day. Sometimes, I wonder why I’m born the same period as Mother’s Day. This means I’m shortchanged of one celebration! Of course, this is good news for hubby’s wallet, so I guess he’s quietly happy. We celebrated my birthday as well as Mother’s Day in advance…
