Greetings and salutations, fellow stargazers! This is your Showbiz Sista turned food blogger for today, together with the stars of Pillow Talk, which is now airing on Channel 8!
“An Intimate Evening With The Stars Of Pillow Talk” was a special first-of-its-kind, ticketed event that was held last night at the award-winning restaurant My Humble House, where 80 lucky fans got to sit down to a sumptuous seven-course dinner with Joanne Peh, Michelle Chia, Xiang Yun, Thomas Ong and Pierre Png.
The first course was “Oyster in two ways” — chilled with onion sorbet and caviar, and baked with cheese — paired with Champagne.
Here’s Xiang Yun enjoying the second course, “Braised fish maw and cabbage heart in thick chicken broth served in young coconut”. “Soup is good for the skin,” she enthused. “Do you like soup too? I often do pork rib soup with wai san. I pop it in my double-boiler and have it with some soy sauce and rice when I get home after a busy day.”
After that came “Kagoshima Wagyu beef with honey mustard sauce served with asparagus”, paired with a lovely red.
Michelle tucking into the next course, “Baked cod with crushed almonds served with garlic mousse”. She was happy that at each table she’d spent time at, she had managed to discuss a bunch of different topics with her fans.
Here’s Pierre sharing a picture and some “Shanghai-style rice wrapped in lotus leaf served with braised whole abalone” with a fan. “I think this is great,” he said. “It’s an opportunity to really interact with fans.”
Joanne rounds off a yummy meal with dessert — “Deep-fried banana and red bean in filo pastry served with straberries and chocolate sauce paired with ginseng pear” – which, yes, she actually eats! How does she stay so svelte! Joanne told us that ten of her fan club members had gotten a table and were “very enthusiastic” in their support. Indeed, Showbiz Sista heard a lot of noise coming from that table, including a birthday song for Joanne, whose special day is coming up on April 25.
What do you think, stargazers — would you like to dine with the stars, too?
Showbiz Sista, signing out. Live long and pop corn!
