Vanilla cuppy with lemon curd topping for my lovely friends!
I bekalkan a pack of Shan's bombay spice for the ladies to bring home, so, now all can try make the dish!
I came to office today looking fresh, even though I have been lacking sleep for the past few days, no, It's not due to preparing dishes for "the" Sunday lunch, but have been doing a lot of thinking....pikir macam-macam. But, after meeting the lovely ladies, Mrs N, Kak Ezza, Mimi, Madam Tai Tai, Ida Scent of a Woman, Yatt Tireless Mom and Shila Superwomanwannabe...things are more focused and falling into perspective! Am not there yet, but, closer, I must say!
The idea for this lunch thingy came about after Gina MTT hinted that she wanted to rasa my Beryani Udang, and later BJ Mrs N nak merasa pavlova and choc trifle.
So, I thought I might as well gather a few other new friends I made aka blogger friends, all of whom now I call friends at a different level for lunch. I made Beryani Udang, Dalca Daging Tetel with red lentils, Cucumber and Cherry Tomato Raita, Ayam Goreng Rempah, Sup Ekor with freshly baked Herbed Loaf from The Bakery, and desserts Chocolate Trifle using valrhona chocolate and my own baked chocolate sponge, and DH kindly made Pavlova nests for fresh fruits! DH also took all the other kiddos, except Muhammad, out for a movie so we could have the house all to ourselves, thanks Long!
SW, Ida, MTT, Mimi and TM
I don't usually enjoy eating what I prepared, but somehow I ate all that I prepared! I can tell you it must be the warmth of companionship by the ladies, the wisdom and wise words, the laughter...also the Jeruks brought by Kak Ezza and Tapai Pulut prepared by TM. Think at the end of the day, the title superwoman should really go to TM, an accomplished career woman who travels a lot and yet manage to get her household all put together nicely! And, after talking to her, I know I have a new set of listening ears, apart from Mrs N's!
Kak Ezza's daughter, Kak Ezza, Mimi and TM
Kak Ezza is so lovable and huggable...suka akak! and her sweet daughter dok kerenyeh aje listening to our chats. MTT arrived looking so polished and elegant even in her casual attire! Mimi is like the Mimi I know from KPP days except now she has her glasses and her tudong, and Ida...a true scent of a woman, lovely and very her! And, the wise Mrs N and witty SW!
Mrs N and SW!
Whilst talking to these ladies I realise that they are what you read from their blogs, very special because there is so much lessons you learn from them and I guess that is why I can "click" with them and them too, I hope!! It's a friendship so pure, so different from the one that I know and yet so sincere...love you all ladies, we must do this again, and I tell myself that I must also keep up with the other bloggers in the circle by visiting them even though time is a real challenge for me. It's my other life! Thank you...Ida and her daughter Sarah
