Reunion Dinner

Reunion dinner for the Chinese New Year is problematic for the two of us.

My mom, while dependable, is not entirely imaginative. Lately, she has been mumbling and grumbling while figuring out what to eat.

My relatives, across the Causeway, had their share of problems too.

Last year, they had their reunion dinner at a well-established restaurant in Kuala Lumpur. After being served their first dish, the cooks went on strike.

Perfect timing.

So over 30 of my near and distant relatives had to trudge out of the restaurant and made the humiliating journey to a Indian stall where they had prata, kambing soup, roti and mee goreng.

Not entirely appealing, but considering we had pizza last year (delivery no less), they didn't do too badly.
