A Blast.




I had a blast tonight.

Last night, in the middle of nothing, my housemate and I decided to throw our close friends a food party. It was a rather spontaneous decision, but we had no regret.

We immediately set the theme as a M'sia-Thai food nite. Without much hoo-ha, we came out with the below menu:

Appetizers


Hot Tom Yum Gong









Chilled Green Curry Tuna Sandwich








Shredded Papaya Salad with Tomatoes, Cucumbers and grounded peanuts.
(something like kerabu mango salad)







Main Entrees

Aromatic Saffron Rice
(forgot to take picture, darn!)

Thai Vegetable Panang Curry
(with cauliflower, broccoli, onions, and eggplant)
(also no picture, sigh)



Chicken Satay with special home-made peanut satay gravy.










Gourmet CharSiew pork.










Chinese Guylan with garlic and oyster sauce.







Dessert


Lemon Chess Pie
(bought from grocery store)






Sweet Dessert: Pearl Barley with egg and beancurd skin







I'll let the food do the talking in this post.

We two girls (me and my housemate) spent the entire day working on these dishes. Wow, so tired now! But we are glad that all eight guests left our place with great smile and happy stomachs. It was well worth the effort.

We even make bento (Japanese, meaning lunchbox) for them to take home. Heh. Aren't we sweet?




I think I will refrain myself from the kitchen during the next few days. Phew.

dear all,

Thank you so much for your wonderful comments. I am delighted that you all are tempted by our work, even only through pictures. Pictures do say thousand words, huh?

Boo, thanks for your compliment. Anyhow, they just don't look as good as those food you found in Ramadan Bazaar. Oh, I love love love all your Ramadan Bazaar posts. Keep them coming, I urge you!

Vagus, actually, the charsiew tasted even better. That's why I called it 'gourmet charsiew', but I didn't address the satay that way ...

Maria, for you, great food is a drive rightaway. Ask your hubby to drive you around especially during the evening hours for Ramadan Bazaar. Those mouth-watering dishes are so yummy!

Coolcat, you really think so? Hmm, thanks. It's always good to have some challenging work from time to time.

Babe_KL, if I'm in KL, I probably won't be doing such thing, haha. You know, you can easily buy those food from the hawker stalls, so easy. We took an entire day just to work on the dishes ... physically can be pretty demanding.

domesticgoddess, if there is a will, there is a way. This is just the best way to cure our homesickness.;)

Gina, yeah, you go gal! Do make it and share with us the outcome! I look forward to hearing more about your party in your blog!
