JW is home for a visit and we wanted to have a small gathering. I feel that having it at home is more condusive than at a cafe or restuarant, so I offered my place.
Afterall, this will be my last party for the year because by tomorrow onwards, I will be busy with packing.
Sieving through my loots required time. Decision has to be made whether to keep or throw. Being a sentimental freak, I seriously wonder whether this can be attained to keep the move a minimal as the new place will be fully furnished with new items.
My goal is to keep my new home cluster free. Geesh... wondering whether this will be a mission impossible.
Well let's not talk about that for now.
For tonight's party, I decided to go spicy. Been a long time since I last had briyani rice. So off I went to get a pack of long grain rice.
Best way to eat briyani is with curries isn’t it?
Beef rendang is always a hot favourite.
I also tried out a new recipe, Madras Chicken. Didn't quite like this as I prefer more spice!
Another new recipe, Tahu Balls and I am surprised that it turned out really good. Best to eat them freshly made.
No more time to have made a vegetable curry so a stir fried Mixed Vegetable.
I prepared an interesting dessert, Sea Coral Jelly but will blog about this another day.
DP also contributed a Lana Wannabe cake but unfortunately, we were so busy chatting that we forgotten to take a picture.
Ended the dinner with choice of durian ice cream which KF, her daughter and GL gave a thumbs up. DP and JW didn't like Durian so they had passionfruit and Manago Ice Cream instead. Glad that they enjoyed these home made ice cream.
The evening was really enjoyable as we have not seen DP since she left Singapore at the age of 14.
I am already looking forward to having another one at my new place.
So in the meantime, you might be hearing from me less often for this two months.
