Though times are bad, but you will see lots of people eating out instead of having reunion at home. I hope that’s the sign of helping the economy, however, from these years you could see many Chinese restaurants are actually opening up for biz on New Year’s Eve. As far as I know, restaurants like Forum Chinese Cuisine Restaurant in Island Plaza is opening, East Hakkaido Seafood Restaurant that located in Jalan Bagan Jermal is opening too. Those years, only hotels’ Chinese restaurant will cater for such needs, but now, you could see times are bad, people are even opening up for such occasion.
My in law are old to cater for a major reunion for the family, thus these years, the sons decided to eat out instead of having the hassle at home. This year, we have arranged it in Vistana Hotel located in Bukit Jambul.
When we were told to dine in Vistana, first thought was has Vistana Hotel has any Chinese restaurant?? Never thought they could arrange it in a ballroom with all tables setup nicely.
Anyway, when comes to Chinese New Year package, nothing could missed out the Chinese Yee Sang. This is always the first dish. Sorry didn’t manage to take any picture as was busy eating. [LOL]

I was told the entire package was costs about RM239++, the food is nothing to shout about, more of get together for the reunion.
Oh yes, in between the session there was this Lion Dance and singing performance.
