Food, Fun and Friendship day Eve
Hotel marine Plaza invited us for an amazing Dim-sum class where the talented Executive Chinese Chef Haung Te Sing took us through the meticulous trail of Dim-sums, how are they prepared and the works.

The workshop was held at the beautiful bay View that overlooked the clear and amazing Arabic sea, a perfect place to wine, dine and spend some exclusive time. Aila that rhymes! So did the freshly cooked dim-sums that just rolled in our mouths, rhyming in perfect harmony with our palates.

The star of the afternoon was indeed the Chef who painstakingly and skillfully took us through different Technics including making open dim-sum, also known as Sui moi.
