A Sporty Christmas Party with Orange Clove Catering

Christmas is my favourite season of the year. It’s the season of dining and giving and spending and I look forward to all my Christmas parties each year. As the group gets bigger (and perhaps I got lazier), I decided to cater my feast from Orange Clove this year. I went for the International buffet (drop off menu) instead of the usual Christmas menu since there was a larger selection, complete with sake, macarons and tart from Goodwood Park 🙂

Delivery was very prompt and I like the fuss-free packaging that was easy to handle

Cutlery was provided by the caterer but I chose my own table setting instead

And the menu includes Aglio Olio, Broccoli with Almond Flakes, Fish Fillet with Orange Sauce, Country Chicken Stew, Thai Style Prawns, Black Pepper Beef, Crab Pincer, Chocolate Eclair and Honeydew Sago

Chocolate Eclair

The food was pretty good and delicious with the deep fried items well-cooked and the other meat tender. It was actually better than the Christmas menu I’ve tried earlier at my company’s lunch. Though I think we got pretty thirsty after the meal

You tend to focus more on the kid

And after 2 hours of playing, we were very tired already. ha #signsofaging

Caramel Chocolate Tart from Goodwood Park

It was one of their new Christmas item so I got it to try. I thought the tart was rather normal. It wasn’t exactly wow, though the focus tends to be on the caramel with overwhelming sweetness. Perhaps I should just stick to their durian items

With Christmas finally over, I can finally unwrapped all my presents! 😀
