As a group of friends & colleagues, we decided to give him a farewell dinner at a steamboat cum bbq restaurant in Seri Kembangan (SK). This restaurant is also another well-hidden one, but apparently it's a very famous one in SK. Hmm... I guess, where there's good food, there'll always be a steady flow of patrons :)
This restaurant is without air-con (open air) & is named Hoi Tong Steamboat. Parking is quite difficult to find, but it's not too great an issue. It a buffet steamboat place, & the place offers not too bad a variety of food for BBQ-ing & steamboat :) Of course Yuen Steamboat at Sunway offers a wider range as it is more established in this business, but this one in SK is not too bad a choice if you're around the area :)
You can find the usual fish balls, meat balls, prawns, flower-crabs, chicken meat, pork, beef, lamb, vegetables, mushrooms, seaweed, & also dessert like ice cream (the chocolate one taste best!), fruits, & jelly. While waiting for the food to cook, there's also the pre-cooked food like noodles & chicken.
I guess the best part of this sort of dinner is the fellowship. It's just fun to be with a bunch of nice friends, having a meal together, cooking together a.k.a. 'main masak-masak', & chatting about every other thing under the sun ;) Steamboat isn't as fun, but the BBQ is :P
I just realized that all you need for the simple chicken fillet to taste yummilicious is marjerin! :P Placing the un-marinated chicken fillet on the banana leave with melted marjerin & slowly allowing it to cook as you turn it gives you a lip-smacking butter-chicken! *drools*
It's great to have Englebert around with us although we can't deny that he usually speaks less than 30 words a day *lol* It's our pleasure knowing him & having him as a colleague & part of our gang :)
Englebert, all of us from the gang wish you a great career ahead & many exciting challenges coming your way! May you persevere as you pursue your hopes & dreams! Don't forget us ya!!
BBQ 'pineapple prawns' anyone?? :P

If any of our dear readers just wanna have a dinner place for the food & fun, this place isn't too bad :) If you are in Petaling Jaya, Restaurant Talipon, opposite Kelana Jaya LRT station, offers the same style of steamboat/BBQ. Talipon's variety is similar, but if I recall correctly, they have more unique food-stuff :P
