These photos were supposed to be uploaded a few weeks ago, but somehow they were concealed among my other entire folder and beyond my mind. It was a lunch farewell do for Dorisha, a good friend of mine from Singapore who has recently moved to the “Land of the Teletubbies”, New Zealand to those with grown-up kids.

We had it at a Pannenkoeken (pancake) Restaurant in Wassenaar. The food was nice albeit different from what we would normally have had in Malaysia (I remembered my Mum used to make it mixed with shredded coconut and served with leftover “Kari Ikan”), nonetheless something worth trying. They have several choices available from plain to fillings according to your taste. Mine was with mushroom, paprika, onion & cheese and dipped with some herbs sauce. I know it sounds odd, but the taste was not that bad. In fact, this place will definitely be in my “places to eat” checklist whenever I have people coming over for visit.

2nd Session of Cooking Demo

Glitter Graphics

On Tuesday, 27 January, I had another session of cooking demo to some of the BSN Mums. This time, they requested for Mee Kari & Karipap. Most of them are expatriates and have been posted worldwide and this include Malaysia, and being such, they were quite aware of all our food back there and I was not surprised when they said that they want to learn to cook Mee Kari. I’m not sure about Karipap though, but I know when ever I brought them to school for any of the school events, they were always a hit and gone in no time.

My last cooking demo I think was somewhere in November last year and only about 7 Mums came but this time around, the numbers were doubled. No doubt I was a little bit panicky at first, not sure if I can manage a bigger crowd (I’m neither an expert in cooking nor good at public speaking), but phew !!! It went smoothly and luck was on my side, the food turned out nicely.

We have not set the next date yet, but there will definitely be another session sometime soon.

Double Date

Quite a lot of things happened lately but as I have recently purchased several new novels, it seemed to have re-ignited this highly addictive hobby of mine. As such, I have not been updating my blog as often as I should have.

Well enough of the lame excuses, let me continue from my last update which ended on Saturday:
That night, Mr Dear & I, together with our good friends, Shareen & her hubby, Johan, went out for a nice romantic dinner in Delft. Yup, you read it correctly! just the four of us, no kids !

Shareen had been planning this special excursion for a long time, but due to soooo many family obligations, we had to postpone it until that night. The Restaurant is called The Ruif. We had a complete 3 course dinner, but by the time I remembered to take my camera, it was too late, all our plates were already empty. Nevertheless, I managed to take photos of our desserts and the menu of what we had !

Gong Xi Fa Chai

Glitter Graphics

As this year, Chinese New Year falls on Monday which is a normal working day in Holland, the celebration here was held 2 days earlier, on Saturday, 24 January 2009. Stalls selling chinese costumes, products and foods were opened along the street in the Hague Centrum and there were also lion and dragon dances and a few other chinese performances. Not only the kids were entertained with all these performances but they were also given a free drinks and a fortune cookies !
