SAM_9773

Ah Gong wanted to have dimsum for Sunday lunch so we made a table reservation at East Ocean Teochew Restaurant, Takashimaya! Thank god we did because the queue was madness! The place was jam packed with people, so make sure you make a prior reservation! 

Anyway, we were gathered together for Ah Ma's birthday!! She's 74 on 1st October! I love you, Ahma!!!!

Cutest on the table!!- Dinosaurs!!

Each dinosaur is filled with radish (chye poh), dry shrimps and pork!

Enough of table full of savory... now it's time for some sweet dim sum!! First up, is everyone's favorite Steamed Custard Buns- Liu Sha Bao! (:

SAM_9744

It's my first time having East Ocean's Liu Sha bao and I must say that they are pretty heavenly! 

SAM_9749

SAM_9748

The cousins with their liu sha bao! A few of them made a mess out of it cause each bun is full of custard!! Hard to handle!

SAM_9706
Mini Puff Pastry Egg Tarts!

I grew up with egg tarts. I remember when I was younger and visited Hong Kong, I ate an egg tart everyday that I was there! But now, i can't finish a huge one so I would only egg tarts when I see that they serve mini ones on the menu! (: 

SAM_9741
Ma Lai Gao- Steamed Chinese Sponge Cake

Zonia's and mummy's favorite!! They would go to every dim sum restaurant and try out the ma lai gao. By far, the ones at Red Star is the worse! hahaha! 

Ending the lunch with a last but most meaningful sweet item.

Ah Ma's Longevity buns!! East Ocean serves really pretty longevity buns that look so much like a peach!!

Because singing Happy Birthday songs with a birthday cake is too mainstream.

Happy Birthday Ahma! Thank you for taking care of me for 24 years now. Always giving us nothing but the best that you have. You would always pile our plates with food when we dine together, saving just a little for yourself. It's now time for me to take care of you. I love you.
