Steamboat lunch @ Elaine's House

During last week long weekend, me and Barb went over the Elaine's house for steamboat. We arranged this gathering on the very last minute. While i was chatting with Barb and Elaine, i said i got nothing on during the long weekend and hubs also not around, i told Elaine i want to go to her house and "disturb" her and ask her to teach me how to do "lor mai kai" so there we set it on the next day. We had steamboat lunch this round whereby last round we had "roast chicken wing" at my place.

I picked up Barb and Ashley from their place at 9.45am (very early lei)!! When we reached at Elaine's house, our first reaction is "WOW"!!!! BIG & HUGE & BEAUTIFUL HOUSE!!

We quickly bring down the "ingredient" then start prepare our stemboat lunch. We wrapped "wanton" and "water dog - sui gou", then all the balls balls. Elaine invite one of her good friend cum neighbour come to join us also. We four ladies are busy in the kitchen and all the kids are "messing" the toy room!!



Danny ( Elaine's hub) was the photographer, i did take a few pictures but not as nice as Danny (he is using DSLR lei), so i will use some of his pictures instead of mine. :)

By the time we had our steamboat lunch is about 12 noon. We settle the kids on the small table first then we adults start our yummy lunch, we yak and we eat. After our steamboat lunch, we help to clean up the place then Elaine start her lesson with me on how to do "lor mai kai"! After i learn i can bring back the "lor mai kai" and eat!!hahahhahahahhahhahahhahah. While waiting for the "lor mai kai", Elaine bake some orange cupcakes for the kids that morning, i cannot resist myself to have two cupcakes and go with coffee! The cupcakes are yummy, my boys love it a lot, each of them ate two cupcakes !!!
