Rotary Club 'The One' Charity Ball

:) A few weeks ago my dear cousin Miss Irene Wang, Yu Jie invited me to be her date for the Rotary Club's 'The One' charity ball. It was filled with fun, family and food! (Bonus: it was to help a good cause!) ;)
Hello there!! Me and Yu Jie
My date... :)
Can not wait to dig in.

Bread basket! (Saved my life, I was starving! We started eating close to 9pm...that's LATE for me)
Appetizers :) FINALLY
Smoked Salmon w/ Black Pepper Potato Chips and Lemon Creme Fraiche (This was divine. The potato chip was light and crispy. Perfect texture against smoked salmon! Favorite appetizer by far)
VERY CLOSE SECOND. Grilled polenta w/ chicken and mango. This was DIVINE. Tangy, refreshing, and sweet. The polenta was crispy, crunchy and creamy....I do not know how that happened...but i'm glad...
Scaollop Saltimobocca...It was interesting, but my scallop was slightly tough to chew
Black Truffle Cream Soup... (I don't think you can go wrong with black truffle or cream!) It was HOT, creamy and rich! Soothing :)
For my main- I chose the Grilled Seabass w/ Lemon Butter Sauce on a bed of Sauteed Spinach.... Ok :) that description won me over already, but the seabass itself was flavour-less... I didn't really taste any lemon butter sauce.
Howard McCrary, Donnie Yen, Cissy Wang, and Michael Wong :D (Donnie Ge and Cissy Jie sat at the head table!)
Yu Jie went for the 'Herb Crusted Lamb on a bed of Mashed potatoes and Vegetable Ratatouille
'The One' Charity! Cissy Jie and Donnie Ge were at a separate table!
Trio of Chocolate: Chocolate Creme Brulee, Chocolate Brownie Cheesecake, Chocolate Tart.  (I was in chocolate heaven!!!!! I had a sampling of each, but my favorite was the chocolate tart. I loved the flaky crust. It practically melted in my mouth!)
Petit Fours...(Stuffed by this point. But, they looked good!)
To accompany our amazing food...were drinks of course. Lots and lots of red wine! It was a great night and we danced the night away ;) CHEERS :D

<3 Always, Jess
