Sunday night was an ever year affair where family members gather for a dinner together. Although some of my aunty and uncles did not come down, our moods were no dampen! In fact we still headed into a great new year dinner! The Lee family was still having great fun in both Aussie and Malaysia!
Mom’s spread was scrumptious as usual for a 10 people crowd. We started off with Shark’s Fin soup! My Sam Ku gave my mom some sharks fin from the US worth hundred plus US$! Very generous weii!! hehehe. My mom only used halve but it was more than sufficient for us! Her soup did not taste like sharks fin soup which was the reason why I liked it haha! I don’t quite like normal sharks fin soup!
This year before the dinner day I complained to my mom, “Whylaaaa!! Always Steamed Chicken one :( Not nice at all!! *emoo*” Haha. It’s nothing but the truth!! Steamed chicken for practically every Chinese festival is horrendous @.@! Not to mention, steamed chicken skin taste so crap! But the roast duck which we had was like woahh!! Nice!! But I think Regal on Roe’s duck tastes better! Weeeeeeeeeeee~
Another must have on the dish table is Siew Yoke or roast pork! Crispy on the skin and tastily seasoned, what more can I ask for? Yums!! Roast pork goes well when wrapped with lettuce!
The next dish is one of my mom’s specialties, the Nga Ku? lol! In English it is called Arrowhead. My mom fries this Chinese delicacy with Parsley, minced meat along with some fermented Chinese bean curd paste!
But that was not all!! We had butter prawns on the table as well! With prawns flown from across the states to my house, we were guaranteed fresh large prawns hehe. The prawns were really fresh with the exception of the first prawn I had.
My aunty also prepared something for the night. She made meatballs with crabmeat which tasted nice as well!!
This is the last picture, my worst enemy AHAhaha! The steamed fish @.@……. Mom knows how to steam her fish but her son here doesn’t know how to appreciate it :(!

Dad and I ordered 2 cups of herbal tea, 2 Hakka noodles, a small plate of Char Siew and a bowl of Meatballs soup.
It’s been a long long time since I had Hakka noodles. Not sure how authentic this is but I’m pretty sure that the noodles hmm. Ok not sure haha. It tasted quite nice. The minced meat was satisfying. Should put more :D
Up next is the meatballs in soup. I feel that the soup had too much cuttlefish flavor to my liking. But I liked the meatballs a lot. Had more texture than those factory made ones or those so claimed “homemade”
The last picture is the dish that arrived last:
I’m not a person who has a lot of experience eating char siew but I feel that this tasted quite good. The meat was lean and of course quite healthy. But my dad said it was not crispy enough for his liking. He prefers the one served with wanton noodles @ Section 17 Mel’s Corner. A crisp on the outside with tender meat on the inside. Maybe the char siew would have been tastier with a little more fat in it :D
Overall Seremban Favourites is quite a good eat after a tiring swim in the morning :) All these pictures of Seremban Favourites are not mine on a side note.

Very long time ago after eating at so many places (yea man, my diet plan is “working”) I’m back here blogging about a place I found quite different compared to the rest. Probably a bit slow on this but hey!! I’ve only been back for a month :(!
Oklar! Been ranting enough! Sister, Eric and I decided to go shopping @ 1 Utama but was too hungry as dad was not free to go lunch with us. So we decided to pop by Zanmai Pasta, a place recommended by Jian before as “not bad”. We ordered quite a fair bit. A sashimi salad, two pastas, clam soup as well as potato salad!
Eric’s salad as he said he wanted to feel healthy!
This drink.. jesus @.@ OKla green sign = toxic or poisonous right? Yea, that applies here. $3.50 “special” brew was no where near special compared to Yobi’s suggested Barley Lime from Bumbu Bali!
A serve of potato salad @ rm6.00 was nice. Matches Fuji’s @ Vic Park, Perth. Tasted very light even though egg and cream was all over. The lettuce at the back was drizzled with Zanmai’s homemade sauce which I have to admit tasted like “my type”.
This was Eric’s soup with lots of clam inside. About 10-15 perhaps? Not bad I guess. I remember there was a time where Tom Yam seafood put in two of those and it was supposed to be a big deal @.@. I did not taste it but Eric say quite good wor. I’ll take his word for it I’d suppose!
Next up is my sister’s pasta. XXXX no chili pasta. Weirdly enough “no chili” means ala chili in Jap. She says she liked the simplicity of this pasta. No overpowering sauce pushing the seafood taste away. I found it boring though lol. But it was nicela, just boring haha. The mushrooms tasted good in this dish!
Sister’s salad with the dressing I talked about before:
And lastly, my chicken pasta!
I love Teriyaki at the right place and being served with pasta does not seem like a bad idea at all. In fact it turned out quite yummy! Although I have to insist that the chicken was not cooked to satisfy me like at Kanta in Perth lol. No bias here man. Just plain truth!! The final bill came to around $100+. Nonetheless, Zanmai has made 3 person that day satisfied as fat pigs.
Will be hitting you peeps with more eats as I come alive tomorrow morning! It’s bed time :D Adios!~
