There is no other Chinese New Year (CNY) celebration that serves Japanese food but at the Yuen Choong Lai and LC Tan's Gong Xi Fa Chai open house. Last year it was at the Kin Shui Teh, Tropicana Golf and Country Club and this year the venue was changed to Nagomi at the Jaya 33. We befriended both Yuen and LC a few year s back when our sons are best friend since year 1 at the Garden International School GIS). Both Yuen and LC were recruits at the Chief's original Bootcamp but they retired when their fitness was at its prime....It was our first visit to the Nagomi. It was a different concept to the Kin Shui Teh and is a more weight-watcher diet friendly. Its shabu shabu base (aka steamboat base). Every year, Yuen and LC never fail to invite the parents of GIS for their CNY open house and every year, we never fail to err... over-eat our invitation.

How can we possibly behave when there were generous amount of food being served. Yuen, being the President for Hadrons Capital, a venture capitalist co-owned a fleet of fine-dining restaurants and we from the eating department performed our tasks beyond our KPI (Key Performance Index).. we simply bedal licin! But its okay to over-eat because most in the menu were vegetable in nature with a generous portion of lean beef.


 OKAY.. OK... Its Chinese New Year and not Japanese New Year but hey... its all about food!! My department.... Eating!!

Who in the right state of mind would resist an invitation to eat Japanese on Chinese New Year.. Not me, I cant resist.. and definitely not Aaraf Armin & Nawal Aini Zulkifli. We arrived at the Kin Shui Tei, Japanese Restaurant at the Tropicana Golf & Country Club with nothing in the stomach, specially reserved for the JUMBO SPIDER ROLL!!! Me favourite.

What makes it more irresistible, was the couple whom invited us, Yuen Choong Lai and LC Tan. The most jovial couple we've met. They are humorous and kind. Yuen Choong Lai co-owned the Japanese restaurant Kin Shui Tei. 

Yuen Choong Lai, or more fondly known as the jovial 'Daddy' by the CHIEF ORIGINAL BOOTCAMP @ Bandar Utama community is the PRESIDENT for HADRONS CAPITAL SDN BHD (355319-W), a fund manager, private equity and venture capital management.

It was raining when we arrived, which is abit 'ong' as there are more food left when many others were stuck in heavy traffic. I quickly went through the tables of food and yesss.. my favourite meal was happily smiling impatiently waiting for my arrival. I also saw LC Tan signature dish which is amongst my favourite too, the 'Buttered Prawn'. LC Tan or more fondly known as 'mummy' by the COBC recruits, the beloved wife of Yuen Choong Lai cook the best BUTTERED PRAWN in town.. maybe in the world. Although the price of Prawn had increased on CNY from RM60.00 per kg to RM90.00 per kg, it did not stop LC Tan from cooking 5kg of buttered prawn for the CNY open house..... of course I did not eat the whole 5kg!!
