Grandma 95th Birthday Celebration @ Jade Garden, Sungai Petani, Kedah ~ Part 1

Few months back, it was hubby grandma's 95th birthday. Most of the family members were busy doing all the preparation for the grand celebration. Guess from overseas flocking in and the outstation guests came. It was very busy day. But it was an enjoyable night.
There are many activities went on for the night such as line dancing performance, belly dancing, singing performance, lucky draw and cake cutting ceremony. ok, back to the foods that we had for the night:
Birthday Noodles
Usually for the start we had the birthday bun for the start but this year, they start with the birthday noodles. This year the birthday noodles was prepared with soup and accompanied with vegetables, prawns, chicken and pork slice, chillies slice and deep fried shallots.
The soup base is nice and sweet. And the noodles has the springy textures, Everyone at my tables loves it very much.
Birthday Bun
We kinda love the birthday bun in this restaurant. It was soft and the lotus paste inside the birthday bun was not too sweet. My gal was the one that always wants more of this bun. ^0^
5 Different Hot Plates
This year we had something different. As previously we had the combination of hot and cold dishes. This year they ordered 5 different types of hot dishes which including steamed egg custard topped with crab meat, BBQ stuffed chicken wings, deep fried prawn, fish and meat paste cake and stuffed crab stick, salted egg and fish paste wrap with bean sheet.
Shark Fin Soups
Actually we want them to do the other kind of shark fin soups which accompanied with the bean sprouts but we were told that we had around 70 tables, they are afraid that they have no man power to do so for us. So we end up with this shark fin soups. Which is also very nice and tasty.
Suckling Pig and Deep Fried Chicken with Plum Sauce
The suckling pig is very crunchy and it is accompanied with the steam bun. My gal can't resist the steam bun and she ate most of the steam bun. As for the adults in our table enjoyed the crispiness of the suckling pig. The deep fried chicken with plum sauce is nice too.
Steam Promfret with Teochew Style
The promfret was supply by ourselves to the restaurant. It is very fresh. Our Aussie guest was asking us what kind of fish is this. They love the textures of the fish and love it very much.
Combination of broccoli, braised sea cucumber, fish maw and "Fah Gao"
Not many people knew how to consume the above dishes. Some only took broccoli. But all these are one of my favourite foods. ^0^ And love the way they cook it. Even our Aussie guests try everything. And they love the textures and tastes of the braised sea cucumbers.
Black Pepper Prawn
The prawn was also supply by us to the restaurant. But this time round the prawn that we ordered was a bit smaller than expected.
Pumpkin with Black Sesame Tang Yuen
This is the last dishes that we had before we wrap up for the day. This year, they ordered pumpkin with black sesame tang yuen. The pumpkin soup was very smooth and the sweetness was just right. However, I feel that the tang yuen skin is a bit too thick. If they could adjust the thickness of the tang yuen skin, then it would be perfect.
Venue took place in

This is one of my family's famous restaurants in SP, especially during big events such at Father/Mother Days. I like the baby pork. Usually we ordered extra sweet sauce and spring onion as they were too tasty. Braised fish maw and sea cucumber also tasted good.
