My Twitter gang did it again! We met up today and this time it is for an occasion we dubbed Secret Santa! What is Secret Santa? A couple of weeks ago, Witch initiated to do a Christmas gift exchange amongst us. The twist is we will be given a name via to whom we have to buy the gift for and that the giver (Santa) and the recipient will be remain a secret until the day we exchange gift; that is TODAY :D
The GANG @ Betty’s Midwest Kitchen
Upon entering I saw LOTS of PIGS!
Ethan’s apple juice @ RM3
Ethan enjoying his drink :)
My Homemade Lemonade @ RM2.50
Ethan’s Bacon Tomato Spaghetti @ RM15.00
Darling’s Beer Batter Fish @ RM22
Both Saucer and Panda Foong had Classical Meatloaf @ RM16.50 
Witch had Pork Chop with Country Gravy @ RM23
Both Grey and QuaChee had Pork Belly @ RM27.50
it came with a bowl of peas that Ethan happily shared with Grey!
Erika‘s Pork Chop with Apples @ RM23
Eric had Pulled Pork Burger @ RM12
It was a merry time eating where everybody sampled each other’s food. We care, we share  :D
Grey sampling Darling’s Beer Fish. Let’s see if both of them get drunk! :P
Ethan ‘no shy-shy’ stealing Grey’s bowl of peas! ^_^
Panda Foong sampling Ethan’s spaghetti
DOG FOOD for all! You’ve GOT to be there to listen to Witch ordering this, “Can I have a plate of DOG FOOD?” OMG! ROTFL!
Seriously! It’s called DOG FOOD! We ordered that for all to share so that we can declare ourselves having eaten DOG FOOD! :D
Of all the food above, the winner has got to be the yummy-licious PORK BELLY! Grey called it SEXY :D

And then it was time for some stripping.. of gift wrappers that is :P And also to guess who gave who what :D
Random pics of the gang with their ‘fully clothed’ gifts. And then the stripping began..
Adrian with the gift from HIS secret Santa – Panda Foong. He got a Doraemon something.. haha.. He loved it as it was his wishlish to get a Doraemon something! :D Adrian guessed correctly as Panda left a signature panda on the wrapper of the gift!
Foong, we are suppose to make our recipient GUESS lah wei! :P
QC and the gift from HIS secret Santa – Witch. One look at the gift and he guessed ME who gave him that! WRONG! Nyek nyek! :P
Panda Foong and the gift he received from HIS secret Santa – Eric. Finally, we can have a pic of Panda in our blogs! Yay! :D He guessed correctly-lah as Eric announced that he did not wrap the present and that is the ONLY unwrapped present … hehe.. 
Ethan imitating Panda :P Here he is with the gift from MY secret Santa – Grey. I have specifically requested for my secret Santa to buy a gift for Ethan and so here he is with his gift :) I guessed CORRECTLY! I’m smart! hahaha :P
Saucer and his bag full of NIPs :P He guessed correctly too. His secret Santa is ME! Lol! Why NIPS? Well.. I’ll let you know some other time :P Got story behind that one!
Witch and the gift she received from HER secret Santa – Adrian. A limited edition Starbucks mug. She guessed correctly if I’m not mistaken :)
Grey and the gift from HIS secret Santarina – Erika. No guessing there as Erika signed the card. Aiyo! :P
Erika and the gift she received from Carol. No guessing here too as Carol told us that the last person who did not get any gift is THE recipient of her gift so we all know that the gift is from HER! :P
Eric and the gift he received from HIS secret Santa – QC. Ok, QC.. why da heck did you get Eric a little black book? Thank goodness Carol was in KK or else she’d pull your ear long long! You dare give Eric the opportunity to jot down girls’ contact in that BLACK book?! 
It was a VERY fun time eating, laughing and exchanging gifts! Darling told me we were extremely noisy today! Oops… 
How can it NOT be fun with moments like the above? Haha… That is Panda Foong and his buddy ‘Stupid’ LoL! :P
One for the album :D
Looking forward to our next meal together already :)

Before I sign out, here’s a video of Ethan playing with the gift he got from Grey :D Thank you Grey, Ethan love it!

Ethan @ 3 years 4 months
