Dinner with Jimmy

My Singaporean friend, Jimmy Ng hosted a dinner for his team after the first day of the Merdeka Team Rapid. His team, Unexplained, consisted of IM Yu Lie, WGM  Zhang XiaoWen , Ng Ee Vern,Cheah Eu Gene and Jimmy himself had a good performance and finished in the prize list. I was invited to join in.

Ng Ee Vern is an ex-student of mine. I still remember when his father brought him to me at age 10 or thereabouts. Ee Vern showed aptitude for the game at that young age. He went on to capture the National title in later years.



The seafood dinner at Unique Seafood in Jalan Kemajuan was excellent.


Lobster sashimi -  a raw dish. You can choose to eat it raw or cooked lightly in a boiling pot of delicious soup.


 Clam shell seafood with some condiments and a light thin noodle. Very good.


This is a Chinese wine with a plum in it. Taste like cognac but not as strong. We also had white and red wine choosen by Jimmy Ng who I found out is a wine connoisseur. His selection matched the seafood perfectly.  I must say that was the best white wine I ever had.



One WGM flanked by two IMs.


IM Yu Lie proved to be a good singer. Also in the
picture is NM Ng Ee Vern's twin daughters.











After much persuasion, our WGM takes the stage.

With so much wine and a late night, the team was not expected to too well  the next morning. Nevertheless the team managed to upset the top seed Team Chesskidz 2.5-1.5. It's just one of those unexplained things. :)
