OMG! Is that chef Dan Hong in the purple lycra? LOL.

This is an event I never knew about until I read your blog, so thanks Simon for the details!

All those lycra clad superheroes are ensuring that I am NEVER going to eat anything ever again! (Well until tomorrow..hehe)

Simon Leong said...

hi joey, i think your right hehe. hope to see you there if you go. lots of yummy canapes to be tried.

hi yaya, i wonder if the chefs will be wearing their lycra suits at the event, that would be hilarious! ;-)

Alas, I work Tuesday nights so I won't be able to make it. Plus the fact that I wake up at 4.30a.m. five days a week and that's a bad combination for a late night out!

Have a great time though, try lots of food, and be sure to wear YOUR superhero outfit! LOL. I await your report with bated breath and much anticipation.

hi joey, that's a shame you can't make it. i'll be sure to take lots of photos for you but i'm not sure about the super hero outfit — i think it'll still be in dry cleaning that day ;-)
