Last Saturday 8th May 2010, I managed to have a very noisy but enjoyable gathering for some ladies who used to go to the same secondary school as me. It took us a few weeks of contacting as many friends as possible to make the event successful. Means of communications – sms, email, phone calls and Facebook announcements!
It was a pot-luck event (I love potlucks, because I didn’t have to prepare so much, despite being the hostess 😉 ).
I didn’t take any photo, but Kak Fatihah’s daughter took some very nice shots.
Nury and I prepared nasi kerabu (a typical Kelantanse dish) with pseudo-“daging bakar” and fried chicken. We had so much food on the table – spaghetti, quiche, sweet desserts, fruits, soft drinks, and the grand dessert was lompat tikam, also a traditional Kelantanese sweet dish.
When I told some of the friends that Sally was to bring the lompat tikam a few of us reminded me and Sally that the colour of the glutinous rice had to be RED!
Let’s see some of the pix:
Here’s the pulut (glutinous rice) with coconut & salted fish:
We played these blu-ray discs (that arrived just the day before) as side entertainment:
They had to work for their meal, but that didn’t stop them from chatting:
Looking at some old photos:
Finally it was real chow time (no time to lay out the dishes nicely):
This particular lady sure ate a lot:
She could afford to do so because she works out everyday!! And on that day she made up to me by doing the dishes 🙂 :
The “lompat tikam” arrived a bit late:
Soon it was on the dining table (yes, the glutinous rice was red 🙂 ):
When it was time for some to go home (while others were yet to arrive), there was more than enough for everyone to tapau:
But not before we had a group photo:
And a not so formal one:
When it was time for some to leave, another lady had just arrived (with more food!!):
A few more arrived later, but the camera girl had gone home by then 🙁 .
Anyway, it was a great day for me. Thank you ladies for coming. To those who could not make it, don’t worry, because some of us were already talking about the next gathering!
