It was a gathering of sorts in Bas's dad's apartment at Melville Park. The last time we met was during the (rainy) BBQ back in early Jan. Why is it that it'll take us at least 3 months before meeting up, even for a simple dinner or coffee..?
Most of us had assumed that this is a pot-luck kinda' dinner. Actually, our host (Bas) had wanted to try a hand at cooking a full main course (with reference to Jamie Oliver's The Naked Chef, every metrosexual's cooking guide). So when everyone supposedly did their part and brought something, food was in abundance.
Tell me. How often do you have a bunch of guys preparing food together in the kitchen during a gathering..? It was such a fine sight, I tell you. Us 3 girls end up standing at the kitchen doorway, watching them. Let's not break their momentum, shall we?
But it was cute. We discovered that his dad's wife was a tad too organised for us youngsters so we got pretty stressed out trying to keeps things back to its original order. Hello, she practically LABLED EVERYTHING there is in the kitchen! She even labled the drinking flask! And she got tons of tupperware tucked away. I tell you, only a very organised person will store everything like that
Anyway, we end up watching tv (b'cos a certain someone forgot the DVDs!). Mtv was showing Room Raiders but we forgot that the screening of the Mtv Asia Awards will somehow screw up the programming and they end up showing 4 episodes of Room Raiders back-to-back! Guess what we ended up watching after that? The POLLING RESULTS on CNA.
Hey, it's a lotta' fun, ok? Especially the sight of the ah-peks in the Hougang coffee shop with their mugs of beer rejoicing the WP's victory. And how some ministers had garlands of flowers up to their cheeks, hence minimising their movements and moving aroung like someone with a broken neck.
Anyway it was nice to be able to meet again. Hopefully the next time we met, it's not exactly for break-fast in Ramadhan. I know we're capable of that, what with our clashing working and social schedules. But we had plan to just meet over coffee at Holland V. It's shouldn't be too difficult, rite?Click on the top pic for more peeks.
