oh well anyway...let's get started...
we had actually planned for this gathering about 2 months ago and we wanted to try something new. so we decided to checked into a 2 room service apartment in the heart of KL city (neighboring KLCC..so we actually get a good view of the KLCC park^^). since the malay sisters are still celebrating hari raya (muslim new year) they decided to treat us non malay sisters to a hari raya feast ^^
becos some food needed to be prepared earlier, 3 malay sisters first checked in on 2nd nov (fri).
while other sisters will bring more food the next day.
3rd nov (sat).
jeannie and myself were the first 2 to arrived bringing those kimchi stuff.
then other sisters especially those with food came...u know..it was really fun when u greet them at the door and check out what they hv with them hahahaha...
meantime we also got those cabbages washed and cut up and soaked in salt water...
when all the makan (food) are ready we arranged them on the table making it our own hari raya buffet ^^
here..take a look at our spread of yummy makan..we got rendang ayam(malay stew curry chicken), satay sauce (spicy peanut sauce), curry potato chicken, nasi lemak(cocunut cooked rice), tomato spaghetti, nasi himpit(steamed pressed rice), lemang(grilled bamboo rice) and vegetables.
as for dessert we had agar-agar (gelatin/pudding), various types of cookies, chips, fruits, korean pears (^^) and cakes...
oh..i love the cake...kak yati u made the cake right? can i have some more please?? ^^
as for the kimchi preparation...some sisters helped with the cabbages garlic ginger spring onions, wash cut soak blend, everyone was busy with something.
oh..there were few who din help cos they were busy watching TWSSG. hehe...
since the cabbages needed some time to soak, everyone digged in to feed their stomach first.
there were so much food that we had a hard time deciding what to eat first. as for myself i went first for the nasi himpit and rendang and satay sauce....oh..sedapnya !~~~~ (so tasty~~)
while eating...of cos everyone helped themselves to what/who else but King Damdeok !
guess what they are looking at....? ↓↓↓
Damdeok of cos !! ↑↑↑
when its time for the kimchi...oops i don hv enough kimchi pics to show u here cos my hands were busy :p
but it was all just mix and mix until it became like tis ↓↓↓
the kimchi is then distributed into containers so that each sister who came have one each to take home. i know some who had more than one and someone even had a BIGGER container ! see that blue top container ???
then we had Ann to teach us on how to do a 'self breast examination'. being a member of the National Cancer Society and a cancer survivor herself she told us her 'fight' and taught us about self determination.
thank u ann...we appreciate it very much. and yes i will make it happen !!!
then it was time for family pics. look who's the wannabe is :p
sorry norni...u can only DREAM and DREAM ON~~~~
and here are those sisters who made us the delicious yummy food ^^ !
thank u sisters the food were really good and sedaaaaaapppppp ! (tasty)
u know evtime there's a gathering of BYJ's family, 'talk' is something that can never ceased. i believe this happen to ALL families. ours' was no difference especially when someone says she's leaving we'll still continnue to talk from the moment she says she's leaving till the moment she closes the door behind her.
one sister said "oh..see..we still talk when she say she wanna go...then still talk when she finally gets up...and then still talking non stop for at least another 10 minutes then she'll walk to the door..again talk...then she'll open the door..talk another 10 more minutes..finally when she really close the door behind her and leave, u realise that she actually take 30 minutes to really go away!"
sigh...are all gals/women like this??? non stop talking? or its only becos of BYJ???? hehehe...
oh...we haven't even finished the gathering but we are already planning our next one big . we'll be going to Port Dickson next May. it was a decision between Genting Highlands and Port Dickson. some sisters were imagining how romantic the beach scene in WLS so the winner goes to Port Dickson ! haha
tho it wont be another 6-7 months we are all so excited about it ^^ we even planned what to eat...guess what.....Korean BBQ...so im responsible to learn how to marinate the beef :p hehehehe ^^
most of us only stayed on Saturday while 4 other sisters checked out of the apartment on Sunday. hmm..wonder what they did?? must be gossipping..what else :p
to those who weren't able to join us...well...sorry u missed the fun and of cos the gooood food ! hahahahahaha....so make sure u join us on our next gathering la.
we would like to invite other sisters outside of Malaysia to join us too. tho the plan is still tentative but if u are really interested pls email me and i'll keep u updated.
last but not least...
