Lets’ Lok! - Chinese New Year Lok Lok Party!

My lovely neighbour invited my family over to her dad’s house for a lok lok party to celebrate the Chinese New Year. Her dad booked a lok lok van to cater for the party. My kids love lok lok and they were looking forward to the party. We reached the venue around 6.45 pm but the lok lok guy was late, he was caught up in a jam because of the rain. Anyway, he arrived 15 minutes later and started preparing the van to start the party. The lok lok van has many kinds of food on bamboo sticks and all of them are arranged neatly on trays with ice to keep them fresh. Ok, I will try to remember all the types of food that were offered that night; fish balls, fu chuk (fried bean curd), squid, sausage, meat ball, sotong (squid) balls, crab sticks, bacon, chicken, lamb, pork, Taiwan Sausage, pickled octopus, jellyfish, lobak (meat rolls), water convolvulus (kang kong), bak kua (sweet bbq meat), mushroom, mussels, tofu and many more that I can’t remember! There are three ways you can cook the food; one is to dip them in the boiling water like eating steamboat, grill it over the electric grill or deep fry them in the hot oil pot. As usual, three types of sauce are available; satay, very spicy chilly and sweet black sauce. Styrofoam containers and tissue papers are provided so that you won’t have sauce dripping all over the place. After consuming your meal, you just have to throw away the sticks and container into the big garbage bag provided by the lok lok man! The lok lok man was busy all night helping us to grill and deep frying the food. Everyone had a yummy good time tucking in to the sumptuous food on the lok lok van! This is a convenient way to have a party! I did not manage to snap a photo of the name of the van but I think it was Cheng Huat Lok Lok and the contacts are 019 6155552 & 03 91025166. Here are some of the photos I took!
Ready, get set, go......Lets' Lok!

I don't like these mobile ones - roadside cocktails! I love lok-lok...but prefer to sit at a table with a hole in the middle filled with boiling water to cook all the things...

Hiring a lok-lok van must be the latest fad in home parties. Recently someone near my neighbourhood hired a lok-lok van too. At first, I couldn't believe my eyes...and I looked again and yes, it was indeed a lok-lok van. Quite a good idea. Instead of having to prepare a steamboat on your own.

So far i have went once for this Lok Lok party. Pretty enjoyed it and fun to.

Though i dun really fancy lok lok, but i like the feeling of celup celuping in de hot pot..hehheh

Oh..I never knew we can 'book' the whole lok lok van. After party, can just wash hand and go. No need to clean up and no washing too. How convinnence. Should tell FIL to do this for next year CNY so we no need to work till so tired. hahaha...Great idea.
