According to an Instagram Story posted by an attendee, the dinner took place on Saturday (22 June) at a restaurant named Manhatta and guests were given a very Singaporean door gift — a jar of Ya Kun kaya.

On its website, Manhatta is described as a “love letter to New York City” that’s on the 60th floor of a building on Liberty Street.

It scored 4.7 out of 2,130 reviews on Google, with reviewers raving about the “great view” and “delicious and flawless” food.

Diners can expect to shell out US$115 (S$156) for a three-course dinner and US$145 (S$196) for a four-course dinner.

Of course, since Edwina’s previous wedding dinner in Singapore on 18 May was held at the Hilton Hotel and attended by big names including Senior Minister Lee Hsien Loong, her celebration in New York was likely to be comparably swanky.

Edwina’s LinkedIn profile states that she’s the co-founder and Chief Executive (CEO) of Supermomos, a tech start-up based in New York, so her New York wedding was ostensibly for her contacts, friends and family in the city.

He visited old friends & ate S’pore food

Speaking of which, his daughter’s wedding wasn’t the only event Mr Yeo attended during his trip to New York.

According to his Facebook posts, he also had a few meet-ups with a number of old friends.

He also enjoyed the Chinese food in the city, including Cantonese roasts and a dim sum meal in Brooklyn.

He couldn’t leave Singapore food behind either, visiting Urban Hawker, a Singapore food court in New York.

Amid his personal pursuits, Mr Yeo also found time for more political ones, as befits a former Singapore Cabinet minister.

On 18 June, he gave a speech at the Asia Society in New York.
