Today, my sisters, my daughter, a brother-in-law aka the driver, and two nieces had an enjoyable day having lunch and then high tea. It was supposed to be a gathering for me and my 3 sisters, affectionately dubbed the LZBs (short for Old Ladies in dialect), but somehow the group ballooned to 7 people. But the more the merrier and we had a good time at both restaurants.
Since I’d been to the Seki Restaurant Singapore a couple of times before and the food I had was almost always the same, I’ll not bore you with the details since I’d already blogged about it twice 😛 Here are pictures of some of what we ate today. What was new to us was the softshell crab which was a tad too salty, and the squid which I really liked because it was grilled just nice and you can smell the charcoal aroma as you bite into it.
We didn’t just enjoy eating the food, we had fun with it too. The staff made a mistake with our orders and served us 2 salmon heads instead of one. Well, since we were presented with the opportunity, we weren’t about to waste it. After devouring the fish heads, we created some food art with what we couldn’t or wouldn’t eat: the eyeballs and fins. Here are our work of art:
After lunch we went to do a little shopping to try to walk off the calories in order to pile on more at The Connoisseur Concerto It was a long-awaited high tea for me because I had sort of developed an obsession with the monthly high tea special but always couldn’t persuade hubby to enjoy it with me. We had the Easter one which he found too light (didn’t fill his stomach) and that was it for him. But this time, I managed to ‘entice’ my sis, Lina, with the Halloween special and we had a whale of a time enjoying the food and having fun with it as well 🙂
Let the fun begin…
Hope you enjoyed the pictures and did not get grossed out by our ghoulish acts 😛
