1Malaysia cupcakes anyone?
Last Friday was a public holiday and coincidentally, I had some ex-colleagues visiting the country from Sweden, so we decided to have a pot-luck party at one of our ex-colleagues houses. As usual, we prepared/bought local food like siew yoke, roasted duck, satay and some really delicious home cooked hainanese chicken rice for them. And not forgetting "lou sang" cos its still Chinese New Year mah. Boy! Did we toss them high alright!!!
We all loved the times we had at this ex-company but due to unforeseen circumstances, most of us headed our own way but we do make it a point to meet at least once, if not twice a year for a gathering with our families.
Bryan behaved quite well simply because there were tonnes of toys for him to play (nevermind if they were Barbies!!) and thank god there were 2 hamsters to keep him occupied too.
Albeit all the fun and laughter, we got to know towards the end of the party that, the ex-colleague who was hosting the meet, has decided to migrate to Australia for the sake of his kids. We were happy for him, but sad to have another friend leaving the country. Sad that we have less one friend in town. Sad that our group is really parting in more than one way. Life is such right. He has been a really wonderful friend to all of us and I am sure we will meet again. After all, Australia is not THAT far away .. only 8 hrs flight mah ... hahaha.
For dessert, I made some cupcakes. I baked a chocolate cupcake (my first time) and had no idea how to decorate it. I didn't want to tint the icing into too many colors, so I stuck to the original and thought it would look great by just decorating it with sprinkles. And they turned out like ...... 1Malaysia cupcakes, dont you think??? I had a good laugh when I completed it, but sorry, too late to bake again.
