Early “Lou Sang” at Tai Zi Heen, Prince Hotel Kuala Lumpur

Xmas is coming near …. have you prepared/book your roast turkey yet? If you are too lazy to do it, I suggest you book a restaurant and enjoy it there minus all the cooking and washing hassled. Food POI would like to take the opportunity to wish you Merry Xmas and a happy near year.

It may be weird to see me post this article up so fast. But after deduct all the holidays Chinese New Year are coming up in no time. About exactly 1 month from Xmas day. I put this up so that people can get some idea on where to dine for their “LOU SANG” ceremony. After reading the article, you can start call Tai Zi Heen to book your table ahead of everyone else. At least you know what is served compare to all your previous years which you are pretty clueless what will be served in the restaurants and avoid waiting for a table.

Thanks to the management of Prince Hotel KL, I was invited for a food tasting sessions at their Tai Zi Heen Chef’s Special Chinese New Year A La Carte Selections session. Tai Zi Heen is an award winning restaurant voted by Malaysia Tatler for the year 2007/2008. Even the chef also won several awards.

This session actually is a press release for the upcoming CNY Yee Sang Promotions which going to be introduced to the public. For chinese community, “LOU SANG” is an important event for business prosperity. The legend do mention that the higher you toss, the more prosperity you get.

To be frank, this is the first time I sit in a session with so many people from the press and magazines. All this peoples are those seniors in writing up articles about foods. To me I am still at the learning curve and at that night I really learn a lot especially on photography and how to play with words in articles. What a great experience I had that night. On my table, sitting next to me on my right was Sidney [Big Boys Oven], Sean [Makanlah], Ms. Lee [Malay Mail], Lenny Mak [United Daily News] and few others. Nice meeting you all.

Not long after we were seated, we were served with the “Yee Sang“.

  4. I’m not a big fan of yee sang. Tossing noodles higher to ensure prosperity? How about working harder instead?!

    Yeah, I thought that the dim sum assortment looked “normal” at first, but when you start describing what they are really made of, it’s amazing. I think that if this really is premium Chinese cuisine, it should look like it, don’t you agree?

    Nates last blog post..Merry Christmas from House of Annie
