Pre Mid-Autumn Festival Dinner

Braised Chinese mushroom w/ fish maw
& shredded dried scallop

Mom in-law called last Saturday and told me that we would have dinner last Sunday to celebrate Mid-Autumn Festival.  She initially wanted to celebrate it on the actual day which falls on this Wednesday but changed her mind. 

As usual, she cooked up a storm in the kitchen, not as many dishes as she used to cook when she was younger but still need a lot of preparation.  This is the first time I managed to snap some photos to show-off her culinary skills.  Hehehe.. Her daughter in-law aka yours truly is hopeless in this field, I can cook simple dishes but definitely cannot live up to her expectations lo.. So, all these years, I still hold firm to my job title.. kitchen helper as always.  Don't know should be happy or sad.. :P

I could not help her much in the kitchen this time as my boy had his Yamaha JMC Graduation Concert yesterday (on the same day) too (will blog in separate post), we were practically rushing like headless chickens, sending my boy off for last minute rehearsal, attending the concert, rushing back to our Puchong house to sort out some urgent stuff and then headed back home for quick shower and by the time we reached the in-law's house, it was time for dinner..  Phew!

I have never really celebrated mid autumn festival before, it had always been kind of very insignificant one, not like makan makan like you.
