YESTERDAY WAS FATHER'S DAY AND I CELEBRATED WITH MY 2 YEAR OLD SON DEDIONE KEE AT HOME IN AFTERNOON.

One for the album
In morning, I went to Shangri-La, Malaysia's best hotel, for 'Little Chefs Meet Big Chef' event. I said 'chef' not 'chief' so it was not a Red Indian do OK.
For 28 years, Shangri-La has hosted Father's Day by inviting little children from 5 to 15 to cook for their darling daddies.
Of course this being Shangri-La and owner Tan Sri Robert Kwok expected to make money, each child had to pay RM 150 to cook for Daddy while Dad and Mum had to dole out RM 150 each for a slap-up meal at Lafite, KL's finest fine dining restaurant.
The main courses were actually cooked by Chef Rudolf Kunkel and his team and not by the tiny tots so everyone enjoyed a feast of the first calibre and not some masak-masak makan dished out by kids.
Serena Luo was the tallest and she is only 11
Entering Shangri-La's kitchens and this was my first time too!
Looks like an operating table and a heart transplant was going on!
Entering the Freezer Room
Brrrrr...cold and we had to count the children as we did not want to leave any behind to become a frozen popsicle
Luo Yong Wen and friends start cooking
Luo Yong Wen listened intently to instructions
All chefs have to try and taste their own creations!
Alessandro Ambra was the youngest at 5

Fooling around as children and most adults do
This kiddo is irrepressible, reminds me of me!
In Lafite's kitchen to make the dessert for Dad!

But he was not happy so he rubbed off and tried again
