@changjiangzhibin89 I hope you are having a wonderful New Year. I talked to my husband about going to the Oriental restaurant this weekend to give our waitress a New Years/Birthday gift.

Oh that is a great 10 dish lauriat (lao-diat or renao) your wife prepared for you my friendvery special. We only get to eat this kind of feast in good Chinese restaurants. it's in a "lazy Susan" or Chinese style rotating table because there are so many dishes that the table has to be the one to turn so everybody sitting is comfortable, very nice my friend, you are very luck you have a wife like her

@changjiangzhibin89 there are plenty here but you have to choose the authentic ones, our family favorite is Toho, it's the oldest restaurant in the Philippines, my family has been eating there for generations, i know how to eat Chinese food even the uncommon ones like suckling pig, sea cucumber etc.. I also know how to use chopsticks so your wife's cooking made me hungry, that is already very expensive here

@louievill If my memory serves me well ,You have mentioned that you are partly of Chinese origin ,but I can't remember exactly when your forefather from China went to there .Suckling pig and sea cucumber seem to be Guangdong dish.

Ten dishes! That sounds like a lot of work for your wife. It's a shame the photo hasn't loaded.

The dishes your wife cooked look mouthwatering. I like the way she displayed the many meals on the dinner table. The food looks so appetizing!
