This year we had to celebrate Christmas away from home and we picked Piggy Jo's place to meet up and her place is 30 km away from the Mid Valley. Jo met us in MidValley on the eve and we had a wonderful bonding time shopping in Robinson , The Gardens. I picked up some plates going off for 70% to showcase my food :p 70% off was a great deal and knowing this Elin, well , she just have to pick a few pieces to add to her collections ! :) We had our Christmas eve lunch at Aunty Nat Restaurant - a nyonya restaurant. I will post that on my next post
Today's post is how we spent our Christmas away from home...and looking through all the photos , I realized that I do miss my Piggies very much and even if it means I have to travel all the way to just spend some hours with them , I am contented and happy just the same. They can't come back, we go to them LOL! We had our Christmas eve dinner at Kajang country club aka mewah club to the locals. The name of the restaurant at the club is 21st Century Restaurant . Situated at the hill top , the hidden gems of Selangor, the night scene was magnificent....looking down , we could sight the twin towers from where we stood...lighted up so magnificient....awwww that was a heavenly sight to behold. I am sure Kajang readers will agree with me :) it was magical ! " Thank you Piggy Jo for arranging this beautiful place for us to have our Christmas Dinner and Wild Boar and myself had a wonderful Christmas and I am sure Piggy Josh would want to bring Elaine to this place LOL! "
This picture was taken after a heavy downpour or we could have had our dinner outdoor instead of inside the restaurant. I would love to come here again the next time I come to visit Jo :)
The food at the restaurant was good, we invited Joanna's buddy , Kristy, to have dinner with us. She is from Shanghai and an international student at the University where Jo is doing her PhD . We had so much fun together and the food was great not to mention , the night would not be complete without dessert at Secret Recipe....as you see how these youngster can really eat ...after a hugh portion of food served at the country club, they each had a slice of cake...Wild Boar and myself shared a Banana Split :) When one is in the company of
gluttons one just have to follow suit :p
Josh, Joanna and Kristy.....

and the best thing is I managed to make
