Vegetarian dinner

Again, another gathering with my colleagues from Costing and Finance. this time is to celebrate Karen's birthday, initial planning was at Starbucks but because we planned to bring our cake, so, we changed the venue to Jia Yi Dao vegetarian restaurant.
(read here for my previous review)

this is Evonne, a very sampat yet nice girl, she'll continue her study at China next month

all the ladies... (minus Karen)

and this is the birthday lady, Karen

all of the ladies now!
l-r: Evonne, Jasmine, Loi, Karen, Bee Bee, me, Amy

the little girl in the middle is Karen's daughter. there was only one guy during the dinner, he refused to take any photos and volunteered to be cameraman.. so, photos credits to Brian!

enough camwhoring, let me present to you the food we had that night:

1. stir fry tofu with loofah

2. mixed greens with gingko nuts and almond

3. steamed fish (which is made of flour)

4. preserved vegetables

5. scramble mushrooms with eggs

6. last but not least, this is my favourite, curry vegetarian lamb with home made buns! really taste like real curry lamb!

after the filling dinner, we had a cake session for Karen, this Tiramisu cake is bought by Amy, from Fresh House Bakery. it's really tasty and look nice too!

last but not least, a group photo with the birthday lady (minus the cameraman)
