I usually try to be more environmentally friendly except for gatherings. Then every thing is disposable. 

Also bought table liner, everything just wrap up and chuck away. 

Doing reunion dinner this year for 1st time, mother cannot handle already. 

Always a first time lor, plus only son is boh pian expected to take over. 

If you enjoy the work is ok, but we are getting tired of the buying and cooking and cleaning, and left overs. So decided since my dad is gone, (my dad prefers to eat at home because eat out sibey rush), we dine out. 

Of course, reunion steamboat is always fun at home. [laugh][laugh][laugh]

But then, because we have had steamboats/hotspots often thought the year, so is like no different already. Even my BIL decided to do a BBQ reunion instead this year and nobody complains. [laugh][laugh][laugh]

Concorde hotel. 

They have it in 2 locations, one at their spices cafe and another one they open up a ball room. Same food, or almost the same food. The one at the ball room is a little cheaper, but those at the cafe gets extra ho liao to start, otherwise buffet food are the same.

I guess the ballroom can take many, so no need turn around, one session, 6.30pm to 10pm. [laugh][laugh][laugh]

 

 

Eat at ballroom ar, like wedding banquet, 100 tables. No wonder they no need turn around and only one session can earn money liao. 😂

Even you use everything disposable and just wrap up and chuck away, it is the process and time spend to do food preparation lo. Quite tedious to go buy foods etc esp if it is for many people reunion. 😅

OK lah it's a balance. That's why hotpot is the easiest and most popular. 

Not say I like to do it. But I don't mind doing it since it's family. 

If it's friends, no way. Go out and makan.

Hotpot is the buying and preparing. The estimation, always overestimate and end up with a lot of extra food, those can keep end up eat same thing next few meals, those cannot keep end up wasted, but then it is how it is, It's reunion dinner. 

And no space to put, we always have to open up one extra table to put the ingredients. After that the cleaning, mopping again, can be quite sian as we age. [laugh][laugh][laugh]

Actually we bought some food for hotpot already, but OC asked can we go out eat instead, she feeling lazy. I also think yah, maybe let's go out eat and save the cleaning. I also feeling lazy. [laugh][laugh][laugh]
