We made another trip to Hot Mama last weekend as we wanted to try the other things on the menu. This time round, we sat in the middle round table which offered less light so the pictures may be slightly dark. Not only did we have a wonderful meal, we both had tremendous fun.
Once we had sat down and ordered, suddenly a bevy of beauties sauntered in with their entourage. A glance at their sashes claimed that these were Miss Chinatown Malaysia National Finalists. Since we sat in the middle part of the restaurant, we had a bird eye's view of all of them as they sat in front of us. Needless to say, Splashie Boy had a fantastic time since he could see all the pretty gals in a row (see his sneaky picture below). We both did some beauty watching and noticed that:
- Contrary to popular belief, beauty queens do eat! These ones ordered huge bowls of noodles and piles of food. No desserts of course and once they finished, they were whisked away to touch up their make-up.
- They love the camera! Throughout their lunch, if it was not the official photographer taking pictures of them, they were clicking camera phones and digital cameras taking their own pictures.
- All of them look kinda alike; long straight hair, tall and skinny of course. A few stood out with short spiky hair or dyed brown hair. Uniform of the day was figure hugging white top with low slung jeans.
I had the Stir Fried Pasta which is like Hokkien Fried Noodles done with fusili pasta. There were chunks of chicken, prawns, brocolli, bean sprouts and lots of black soya sauce. This tasted oh so good! and I liked the sprinkling of chopped peanuts on top.
Splashie Boy had the Roast Beef Set; pieces of tender roast beef with spices served with rice and a dipping sauce that made the dish. Although there were pieces of chilli padi in the sauce, it was not too spicy and tasted great with the beef.
Here's a sneaky picture of the babes from our table. They're the girls in white with the sashes while the people in black is part of the beauty queen entourage. The chair is blocking the view but we thought, if we suddenly moved it that would have been too obvious.
We finished off the lunch with the lotus pancake and ice-cream (as seen in my earlier blog).
