the tree was decorated with lanterns and the little gathering got underway. (just hope the tree won't die due to the heat from the candles)
food is a must in every party or gathering. we had cheese sausages, some "chai kueh", the compulsary mooncakes and also a pot of hot green tea and some cold ice tea for those who can't stand the heat. we didn't managed to finish all the food though
admiring the lovely lanterns, luckily non was burnt due to my ingenious way of putting tea candles instead of the normal candles inside the lanterns

lanterns display infront of the temple
lanterns of different shapes and colors on sale (anyone want to play lantern with me?)
giant lanterns hanging over the bonsai garden
soothing traditional chinese music playing in the back ground while you enjoy your bonsai appreciation
with all the influx of modern mooncakes, these traditional styles are still the best around
anyone want some cotton candy?
haircut for only RM1!!!!!!!!!! (i'll bring my whole family for it including my aunt, uncle, nephews, nieces, dogs, cats, ......)
even the Malays are enjoying the fest, this shows how we Malaysian live in harmony with all the different races
"chai ming tern" anyone out there who is expert in chinese poetry can have a guess
the majestic temple for you to pray and give thanks to GOD for all of this

salty vegetable soup with seafood and meat - a little bit bland
deep fried squid - crowd's fav, crispy and yummy!
butter prawns - a bit of a disappointment
oyster omelete (o chien) - another crowd's fav
small lettuce in garlic - the only non meat in our menu
steam fish in teochew style - fresh.....
wash down the meal with a fresh coconut
The dinner was great with the compliment of a drama played next table. The story involves an old man and a girl from China. Seems that the China girl is angry with the old man of neglecting her and not pampering her enough. Very dramatic indeed! After dinner, we all head back in a subtle mood since everyone was too full to joke around anymore. Burp!!!

The place wasn’t packed as its still early but slowly the cat people start crawling in as the time gets by. An interesting thing I notice here was they served the dim sum in trolley like those in Hong Kong but they still have to invest in a real proper dim sum trolley.
a proper dim sum trolley will do nicely if they willing to invest in 1
Overall, nice ambience and food but on the pricey side. Bring people here if you want to impress them. Now, after all these dim sum, I have to drag my feet back to work.
Teochiew siew mai, minced meat and prawn top with fish egg and wrapped in lettuce
char siew che cheong fun, the skin is thin enough but the char siew doesn't taste or look like char siew - kind of disappointing
chicken porridge, the porridge was smooth and top with lots of shredded chicken and crispy bean curd
lo mai kai, glutinous rice steam with chicken, peanuts and dried shrimp
crispy yam puff with char siew, one bite into the yam skin and you'll get steaming hot char siew
deep fried carrot cake, crispy on the outside, soft and smooth on the inside - best eaten with the chilli sauce
deep fried bean curd skin stuff with cheese and prawns -my fav
the king of dim sum - har kau
egg tart, not the usual multi layered skin but instead of the pastry style
char siew pau, nice skin texture with lean pork inside
all wash down with a steaming hot cup of chinese tea, ahh.......
