The back wall of the KLCC ballroom was lit with an aboriginal pattern
Fresh off the heels of our trip to Vietnam, last week the hubby and I went on our third-ever post-baby date. A couple of Australian-Chinese friends of ours invited us to their Australia National Day celebration, and if it’s one things the Aussies do well, it’s throwing a party.
Liplocking with a giant tuna wasn’t my plan but quickly became my goal
Within minutes after arriving, we could tell this was no typical Fourth of July-type barbecue. First of all, there was a fresh giant tuna flown in from Tsukiji Fish Market, where the freshest sushi fish are sold in Tokyo. Anytime an event has a giant, whole tuna just for display purposes, you know this party is all business.
Another indication that the shindig was about to get real was when we discovered an entire lamb turning on a rotisserie in the corner of the room. I was floored. An entire roast beast wasn’t even the centerpiece of the evening. No, that distinction was held by the enormous ice sculpture featuring the Sydney Opera House, the Sydney bridge, and a giant relief of Australia. There were imported Australian beef made into a variety of dishes, imported Australian seafood prepared a la minute, and a generous selection of imported Australian wines. The food offerings were staggering, and I can honestly stay I’ve never, ever been to a large-scale event like that in my entire life.
The hubby has a really high bar to meet now on our fourth post-baby date.
