The giant longevity bun hides a couple more mini buns. We had these traditional longevity buns filled with white lotus paste at my dad's birthday as well. It is shaped like a peach, the Chinese symbol of long life. Dinner for the whole extended family at Man Fu Yuan.

It's free entry for senior citizens and children. My mom and I are here to see the Jewels of the Mughal Empire exhibit. For all attendees, there is even a contest sponsered by Lee Hwa =)
Loads of exquisite jewellery on display with armed guards patrolling the exhibit area. Not surprising given the combined opulance of all the pieces. Towards the end of the exhibit, there were 3 uncut diamonds totalling 100 carats in addition to chunks of emeralds, rubies and spinal. Wow!
