It had been sometime now that I had not been updating my blog but I am sure you would have caught me on my facebook (Sidney Kan). For a simple reason I had left my professorship and had been on light travelling. The destinations that had my foot marks were Langkawi, Bangkok and Jakarta. It was not soul-searching but rather a free and easy travelling. Seeing and eating were my objectives.

Back to this post, yet another favourite food tasting of mine I had recemtly. This time I caught up with a fantastic Master Dim Sum Chef Yoon Kong Thye who is based at Lai Ching Yuen Chinese Restaurant. He is a truly an artisan on what he creates best, a fabulous outstanding Dim Sum. Here, I got to confess that I had a fabulous time when I get to meet up with him at his open designed kitchen. :)

First to impress was this perfectly delicious Seafood Salad. Need not to explain, you can see clearly layer after layer of crips pastry towering to a hight with topping of fresh scallop and prawns while jungled up with thin slices of vegetables. A drizzle of lightly sweet mayaonise caused a intrigging taste and just sizzled me of wanting another bite.

Marching in came a row of porcelain spoons that cradled with perfectly wrapped minced pork and prawns over a bright yellow wanton wrapper. Freshness was truly orchestrated here. Whats more to my surprise was the whole dumplings were each topped with a gorgeous and yet sexy scallop and was given a final touch of a bright orange tobiko. It was spectecular to see and truly enjoyed it. Just speechless. Excellent.

The filling was plenty, every bite was just exciting. The prawns filling was full of freshness and had a good biting texture. Lovely.
