Yalor.. ..and some costly but totally not worth it.. ..
I reckon it is more fun and cozy to have at home if there are willing and good cooks. Potlucks, panchai and steamboat sounds good to me too.. :smile:
But for those who preferred 'fuss free' and 'hi-bye' for whatever reasons.. eating out is easier..

The problem is where to find willing and good cooks.

for many years we did the eat out

like in a duck farm, chased in and chased out due to the time slot, and it was all hi-bye kind of reunion dinner

this year we decided to change and persuaded the elders for a change in protocol

it shall be at my house and the menu was just finalised recently

will have fire-works, sparkles etc for the kids

and the number of items for makan plus lohei etc last counted ...... at least 18 ....

Wow verykiasu2010.. ...18 dishes on the menu! :drool:
For me we used to do 2 places, early dinner and late dinner.. ..
Just the parents for earlier meal and later in-laws and a BIL..
MIL's ran out of ideas and kept giving us not fully cooked food last couple of years.. ..
Before my DS say salah thing I suggested we eat out this year.. :sweat:

not only that, food & service tend to be not of usual standard.
