Long Beach Seafood Restaurant IMM Chinese New Year 2014 Menu

Category : Seafood

I was looking around at where to eat our Chinese New Year 2014 Gathering dinner and I remembered that I had a pretty good experience at Long Beach Seafood Restaurant IMM.

So I checked out their menu and took some photos to share with my friends on whether they’re ok with the place and thought why not just share with everyone 🙂

How I wish all the restaurants will upload their menus online so that it’s easier for us to choose where to eat.

Especially during this Chinese New Year season where most of the restaurants have special seasonal Chinese New Year menu and their usual Ala Carte menu will not be available

Anyway, here’s Long Beach Seafood Restaurant (IMM)’s Chinese New Year 2014 Menu for your reference 😉

Peony Jade Clarke Quay Chinese New Year 2014

Category : Chinese

If you’re thinking of heading down to Peony Jade Restaurant for Chinese New Year Lunch or Dinner, it’s highly recommended to call in advance to make a reservation.

Peony Jade Keppel Club was fully booked for lunch and there was only a table left at Peony Jade Clarke Quay. Lucky Us!

You won’t find their usual Ala Carte or Dim Sum menu. Instead you’ll be greeted with Peony Jade’s Chinese New Year Menus. As Peony Jade’s Chinese New Year set menu was way out of our budget, we focused on their Ala Carte Menu instead.

I also didn’t get to lay eyes on their Chinese New Year set menu so…sorry, no photos. If I recall correctly, their set menu starts from S$98++ per pax? Please don’t quote me 😛 It’ll be better to ask them over the phone when you’re calling for a reservation.

Meanwhile, here’s Peony Jade Clarke Quay’s Chinese New Year 2014 Ala Carte Menu for your reference.

Now, Peony Jade Clarke Quay’s food.

I really enjoyed Peony Jade’s Yusheng. Definitely one of the better yushengs I’ve tasted. I love that they included orange peel & pomelo flesh which gives the yusheng a hint of savoury sour taste so that it doesn’t just taste sweet & sweet.

And I also must add that the lady serving us had really great service! She patiently took photos for us and even arranged the smoked duck bun nicely for us to take photos! I was really wow-ed by her!

Generally, I enjoyed Peony Jade Clarke Quay’s main dishes. One of my colleagues didn’t like the sauce that came with the smoked duck as it has the sandy texture which most probably is the coarse sugar? I did find that the smoked duck is a little salty on its own so I prefer to have it with the sweet sauce. Having it with the bun helps too 🙂

Since it’s Chinese New Year, we gotta have fatt choy (发菜) which sounds like the auspicious phrase – striking it rich (发财). Our vegetarian colleague tried fatt choy for the first time and enjoyed the texture. At first glance, the fatt choy really looked like mushrooms right? Really very 发 😀

Skip the desserts 😛

Note: As we have a vegetarian colleague with us so all of our dishes has been “modified” to exclude meat (except for the duck of course).

Joe Hisaishi Studio Ghibli Anime Budokan Concert

Category : Japanese Anime

I’ve always loved Studio Ghibli animation films and I happened to chance upon this concert video where many signature musical pieces are conducted by the legendary Joe Hisaishi himself.

Impressive and touching!

I especially love the musical pieces from Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind, Laputa: Castle in the Sky & Spirited Away.

They’re very moving.

Familiar tunes from Hayao Miyazaki’s films like Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind, Laputa: Castle in the Sky, My Neighbor Totoro, Kiki’s Delivery Service, Porco Rosso, Princess Mononoke, Spirited Away, Howl’s Moving Castle & Ponyo on the Cliff by the Sea really brings back memories & emotions.

I myself have bought a few Studio Ghibli animation films DVD (yes, the days when DVD was the best) individually before I bought their compilation. Can’t say I love all their films but definitely most of them 🙂

What I can say, Grave of the Fireflies is just too sad for me…

My favourite Studio Ghibli animation films are Spirited Away & Howl’s Moving Castle 🙂 I first watched Howl’s Moving Castle in the cinema before grabbing a copy of the DVD when it’s released. That was how I got first acquainted with Studio Ghibli 😛

If you’ll also like to own a piece of Studio Ghibli + Joe Hisaishi music magic on Blu-ray, you can grab a copy here:

PS: You must check out the moment at the 1hr 41min mark of the youtube video!
