A second reunion dinner of a year
Qingming festival is when Chinese people visit the columbaria, graves or burial grounds to pray to their ancestors.
It is also a day my big family members gather together for a second time of a year after the reunion dinner to welcome spring.
Though living in other state, they would come back to Melaka for Qingming. Before the rites and rituals that has to be performed the next morning, the family members gathered for another reunion dinner.
This time they selected Restaurant New Lagoon for the reunion dinner.
After, I am done with some video recordings, I noticed a dentist whom we used to see around Plaza Pandan Malim sitting next to our table. I guessed he is joining a school gathering-cum-dinner dinner. Behind me, several children and grand children sang a birthday song to an elderly man.
I find out some of the dishes Restaurant New Lagoon is good at. Some names of their delicious dishes is listed below.
Lagoon Special Five Combination Dish
Fish Maw with Seafood Soup
Shark's Fin Soup with Crab Meat
Steamed Promfret in Teo Chew Style
Steamed Marble Goby with Soya Sauce
Deep Fried Prawns with Bread Powder
Vietnamese Crispy Fried Chicken and Roasted Duck
Fried Scallop and Asparagus with XO sauce
Roasted Suckling Pig
And many more if you see the menu.
Everyone of them enjoyed the delicious dishes Restaurant New Lagoon served.
They chat a little while before they adjourned for the night to rise early for the Qingming performance.
