Alvinology’s family reunion dinner (团圆饭) 2012

Alvinology’s family reunion dinner (团圆饭) 2012

Like last year, the previous year and the year before, we had our family reunion dinner at Pu Tien Restaurant (莆田菜馆). The restaurant serves Heng Hwa (兴化) cuisine. Heng Hwa is the Chinese dialect group of my family.

This year, we have a new addition to the Lim family – my son, Asher Lim Yu Yi, 5 months old! This is Asher’s first reunion dinner. We dressed him up in a Nepalis costume and shoes given to him by my mother-in-law. I wore a matching Nepalis shirt to accompany him.

We were happy to be able to secure a table at the main branch of Putien restaurants at Kitchener Road. The food was good as usual and the service excellent, despite the large dining crowd. We met and exchange greetings with the friendly boss and some old staff who are friends with my parents.

Asher was very excited to be out today and managed to stay awake throughout. Once we got home, he concussed in bed like a little piglet.

While most people wishes for luck and fortune, Rachel and I will be very contented with a happy family, good health and harmonious relationships in 2012. Happy New Year everyone! May you have a great year ahead in 2012! 🙂
