A night at the Songket
I attended the Hockian Association Prize Giving Ceremony at the Songket Ballroom, The Mall last night. I went there as a ticket holder, not any prize winner.
I reached there around 6.30pm and there are hell lots of people outside the ballroom. Most of them are the prize winners, their parents and some of them are like those important people from the association. After waiting for my uncle and cousins to arrive, we then went in together to find our seats, at Table 47.
The ballroom is nice.. All the decorations and stuffs..
The most important guest last night was Pehin Orang Kaya Johan Pahlawan Dato Seri Setia Awang Haji Adanan, the Minister for Home Affairs. We waited until 8.30 just for him arrive. I didn't really wait though, just eating some nuts and do some chatting with my cousins before the honorable minister arrived. Among the other ministers in the cabinet, he is the one I respects the most. As he arrived and walked along the red carpet, I stood and greeted him with a firm hand-shake.
There were quite a lot of people.. Around 105 tables altogether in the ballroom..
Wah! Coconut head! (Sorry, just joking!)
There were also a few cameraman, and this one (in the picture) from RTB. He was shooting us with his videocam, so I just shoot him back with my camera loh..
And this is how the waiters and waitress served us before the feast began, got 'pattern' one oh.. The lights went off, except the stage.. Around 5 or 6 of them went up the stage, holding their tray, bowed to us and then get down the stage.. What's that supposed to mean?!
And this is the list of foods they served last night.. It's not so bad.. Didn't really make me full but I still enjoyed it.. To see more details about the food they served, visit food-hungry.blogspot.com..
