Christmas Lunch at Banquet at Bangsar Village II

Auntie YC invited us for Christmas lunch at Banquet, Bangsar Village II on Sun, 21 Dec 08. She had been to the Banquet for several times and love the food there.

While walking from the car park to the outlet, we saw these mini collectible cars.

They were so sporty and cute.

Christmas is about sharing and giving and there was a "Kids for Kids Charity" activity in the shopping mall.

A very clever idea and design of Christmas tree made out of plastic bottles, hang in the centre court of the shopping mall.

Banquet is a sister restaurant of Café Café, which is located at Jalan Maharajalela in KL. I love the pretty, girlish white decor of this eatery, especially the chandeliers.

We sat at this outdoor section of Banquet which is situated at the centre court section of the shopping mall.

Banquet serves local and western dishes.

A very stylish menu.

I ordered this Crispy Brie for Jared and Jaden. It's fried cheese served with tangy sauce. However, they didn't like it.

French fries for the kids too.

And these two boys really enjoyed the french fries.

Rojak, mixture of local fruits and vegetables ie pineapples, cucumber, guava, mango, turnip, etc tossed in local rojak sauce, garnished with roasted peanuts and sesame seeds.

Wild Rocket Salad with sliced pear served with Parmigiana Cheese and roasted pine nuts.

Mee Jawa or Mee Rebus in mildly spicy sweet potato gravy, with fried bean curd and sliced fritters, crunchy cracker, prawns and bean sprouts.

The noodle is yummy though its extremely pricey for a bowl of noodle.

Aunty YC highly recommended this Hot Chocolate Cake as she knew I loved chocolate cake. She told us that we had to wait for 15 mins for this Hot Chocolate Cake with White Truffles Flavour and as such, we ordered it just before we finished our lunch.

After lunch, we proceeded to ToysrUs as Aunty YC wanted to buy Christmas presents for Jared and Jaden and she let them chose their own presents.

Jared chose Transformer toys and we chose this 3 in 1 Art Desk, First Art Studio for Jaden as he loves to write and draw.

Jaden playing with his new toy.

Jared and Jaden received the above presents from Penang 7th uncle and family.

I organised a simple steamboat dinner at home on Sat, 27 Dec and invited Aunty YC to join us for the dinner. The following day, we invited my sister, SC for steamboat lunch as her husband loved steamboat and we had balance of fish ball, etc from the earlier steamboat.

This Creative Bricks box is from Patti to Jaden.

I cant remember as its a gift from our aunt.

We got it from ToysRus. There's a few types of this art desk. We chose the middle range one.
