Home-cooked food is still the best!

As I love to eat home-cooked food, and have been deprived of it for the last 1 decade (and more), I initiated a Food Party at Albert's place, where everyone of us was supposed to cook a dish each.

I ended up doing most of the cooking, super tired, but really happy because they all complimented that my cooking was better than expected. I was also surprised the food all turned out tasting quite good, considering I seldom cook (like once a year?), and I have not cooked that few dishes for years!

I met up with Mimie and did our groceries shopping at Hougang Mall NTUC Fairprice.

After we lugged more than $100 worth of groceries home, and hoping to get some rest, Mimie realised that her keys didn't work! OMG.

We were stucked outside the house for almost an hour, before Albert and Yenny finally came home with the CORRECT keys to open the doors for us!


The stupid door!

This is what 2 very bored people would do - Camwhore!
And record a video... its really lame! ROFLMAO!

Lucky I had my Pokka Milk Tea to accompany me for that hour!

Me trying to open the door every 10 mins, hoping there would be a miracle.

Yes, we were extremely bored!

After ONE HOUR of waiting, Albert and Yenny finally reached home!

We immediately got into action, and started cooking, although we were exhausted from all the waiting.

Finally, after all the chopping, grinding, slicing and washing, we were finally ready to cook!

My first dish was Tomato Prawns.

This is the final outcome.

My second dish was Potatoes and Pork in Oyster Sauce.

Everyone were waiting patiently, while I COOKED!

Me and my best assistant, Yenny.
The assistant with more than 1o years of "assistant chef" experience.
Assistant to her mum back in Indonesia... LOL

While we were cooking, the others were laying out the dinner table. And yes, that bottle of Absolut Peach was sponsored by me as well.

I think this dish took me more than 20 mins? It was tedious....

2 dishes were ready, but we still had 3 to go.

The other 2 dishes were whipped up very fast, because they required little effort and time.

This dish was cooked by Nova.

Tomato Prawns

Fried Luncheon Meat

Potatoes and Pork in Oyster Sauce (Kentang Ba)

Our dessert. Rambutan stuffed with pineapples with fruit cocktail.

All the satisfied diners.

Me and Mimie

Albert washing the dishes - which was supposed to be Kay's task as he did not help during the whole process.

The whole day ended with a lot of fun, drinking, gambling, etc.
I love such sessions, just brings friends closer together, and I hope to do this more often, because I am such a pathetic-home-cooked-food-deprived soul!
