‘Unblogged’ Past Happenings

We’re back! Or at least, I’m back! Haha… πŸ˜† The weekend passed TOO fast, & so did yesterday!!

Not touching the keyboard for a few days makes my fingers itch. Even though I was dead tired from the conference yesterday (will blog about it later), I just had to turn on my laptop & get all the photos done up πŸ˜› This is what happens when one works with the computer too often- one falls into an addiction!

I realized that there are at least 3 events/food stories that I didn’t blog on! Oh, what a shame 😳 There’s an inter-faith event that I attended in early July, and 2 dinners to feature 😐 I better write about it before I forget!!

Interfaith Dinner

There’s this interfaith fund-raising dinner that I attended early this month. I was there under the name of the Trinity Annual Conference (TRAC), the organization for English-speaking Methodist churches in Malaysia. My friend who works at the TRAC office had 10 tickets to the dinner & didn’t know who to grab along. So, I was one of the fortunate ones πŸ™‚ When it comes to food, everything goes! πŸ˜†

Date: 5th July 2007
Venue: High Convention Centre, Sentul, Kuala Lumpur.
Event: 24th Anniversary Celebration of the Malaysian Consultative Council of Buddhism, Christianity, Hinduism, Sikhism, & Taoism.

During this dinner, we actually had around 25-30 tables of people (10 per table) from different faiths. We were served vegetarian food, & there were performances by various groups to keep the crowd well entertained. The food was alright (not excellent), but the service was kinda poor. I didn’t take any photos of the food cos we’re just too hungry by the time dinner started & the food didn’t look that great anyways πŸ˜€

At the end of the dinner, was a lucky draw πŸ˜‰ TRAC won a hamper by Nestle…heehee…it was kinda exciting cos we had a ‘free’ dinner (since we didn’t pay for it ourselves, but TRAC paid) & we got a hamper, which we shared out among ourselves and there were some for TRAC office as well! Oh, how exciting…heh πŸ˜€

‘Nuf said about the event. Now on to some food pics- home cooked food!

Some Home-Cooked Food

My mum went ‘simple’ last Monday & decided that we have ‘salad’ for dinner! My dad was like, “Har? That’s all we’re eating ar??” For a man to have vege only for dinner, it spells ‘Torture’ πŸ˜€ But I can tell u that it’s a GOOD dinner!

I miss the days where Anne & I have salads with our room mates. Looking back, it’s been half a year since we had our mad salad craze in uni! Haha…I remember the effort we put in to decorate our salads and to make it look SO appetizing, before devouring them in a jiffy! Such are memories to cherish forever 😐

I finally realized where I got my ‘salad decorating’ skills from- my mum! LOL. That night, we had garden salad, potato salad, & believe it or not, steamed LARGE prawns in cooking wine!! Yums!! the prawns are HUGE, I tell u. It’s at least 25 cm when stretched out!!!

The wine was SO ‘keng’ & the ginger was SO waluwey hot that I had a fever the next day after drinking some of the heaty ‘chap’ from the prawns!! *faints* lol*

One more pic:

My family celebrated my grandpa’s 92nd birthday on last Sunday. We had a lot of food as usual!

Considering the load of food that I’m putting into my stomach, one will believe that Miss Wong here is putting on a lot of weight!! ‘Cham la’…
