relieve ....

Phew....my company's dinner and dance was finally over yesterday night. As one of the organising committee members who sat through meetings months before the actual event, it was really a relief to see a successful event completed, though I am not the overall Project Manager. The team really works hard especially on the actual event with lots of excitement as well as full of anxieties. I was so anxious when we are required to go up on stage for acknowledgement by our CEO as well as did some very, very minor moves and posed in front of 800 crowds behind the dancers.. LOL....  Anyway, since this is my company's events, I am not going to post any pics  here but I really felt so relief and looking forward to year-end. Year end is always special to me!!

Back to my last weekend retreat, we patronised the popular Kota Tinggi's Bak Kut Teh again on a Sunday morning after my church service. The service started at 8am which means I needed to wake up at 7am on a lazy Sunday morning and though I can 'tahan' the service for an hour, the sermon was prolong to 10am and I almost felt asleep.... LOL  Luckily, I still managed to drive for 45 mins to Kota Tinggi later. We were quite late around 11am+ and the crowds were building up. Some of the dishes were sold out and it's so difficult to find a table. It was a long wait before we were served and the soup seems to be too 'kao' (condensed) where it was slightly bitter. In my last trip, where we were early, the soup was just nice and thick enough. However, this time round, I guess the soup was finishing soon and it was slightly bitter due to over-brewed. It's still good and I guess some folks love the 'herbal-bitterness' taste.

Look at the crowd , some were still waiting to be seated.

Tough finding a parking lot!

Got served by some nice chinese tea in 'pu-erh'

Claypot fried tofu - Very nice , the soup were same as the BKT

Somehow I love this the most that day, a very delicious otak-otak

The 'mei chai' also not bad... very soft.

And, here's the main dish, their famous BKT. 
Meanwhile, I am looking forward to my off-day this Friday, just hang on for another two working days. :)

  17. You reminded me of a joke about a priest and a taxi driver when both report at the Pearly Gates. Saint Peter checks his dossier the taxi driver passed but not the priest. The priest protested and Saint Peter explains.." When you preach at the sermon almost all the members go to sleep where else for this fast taxi driver all his passengers prayed very hard".

  18. This place must be very cool with the attap roofing and open space concept. Tofu in BKT soup should be nice so no cholesterol. Bananaz lup the BKT soup but not the huge chunky meat
