Poolside BBQ Party

I attended a Poolside BBQ party today. Quite an interesting one because there are so much to do to keep ourselves occupied. The first thing that caught Ethan’s eyes is the Kids’ Jewelry Making Station by Kelvin Gems. He quickly ran to me saying he wanted to make me something. This boy, just earlier we had a heated argument and now he is dying to make me a jewelry. *Heart melt*

He told me to choose either a bracelet or a necklace. I chose bracelet and he quickly got busy. Look at the beads he chose. All so cute!

It’s done. Beautiful isn’t it? He told me, “Mummy, if you wear this, adik sure will like it because everything is so cute”. Haih, this Ethan. Sometimes he drives me crazy. Other times, he is just too sweet.

Abundance of food. When Sidney first invited me to this BBQ Party, I was hesitant as I never liked BBQ if I have to DIY. Imagine going all nice and ending up drenched in sweat like somebody has just thrown you into the pool. Only when he informed me that there will be chefs doing all the grilling that I agreed to attend. Yes, I am diva like that.

I never know we can actually hire BBQ pits and chefs for parties until today. These are all from Bakarlah BBQ & Rental.

Nice idea to have all the BBQ-ed meat and fish on banana leaves.

My plate of shishamo grilled fish! I love shishamo fish although I always feel guilty eating these pregnant fellas -.-

NY Shack

Delicious meatball pasta from NY Steak Shack for the kids. Actually I had some also. Shh.. don’t tell the host.

There were many beautiful cakes too and I heard they are from Eastin Hotel. My favourite is this cheesecake:

Cheesecakes from Eastin Hotel

What can I say? I am a cheesecake monster and this is just too good. I officiate the cake by cutting it when no one was looking (after getting the approval from the host of course) and quickly took a quarter of it before anyone sees me. I am not greedy, it is just that there were many other cakes around so I am actually helping to eat.

Let’s see the rest of the cakes:

This was very nice too. I think it is chocolate cheesecake.

This I left untouched as other guests were starting to stare at me like I am some kind of a cake hogger crazy woman or something. But I really love cakes lor…

We also had a photo session by The PhotoZ.

Here’s getting our head shot for a black and white picture.

And here’s a picture taken by Zung himself. I looked macam baru kena marah kan? This was actually for a head shot also and I was told to look down… Picture credit to Leona.

I left shortly after so I did not get to see the end result of the shot. We did not go for a dip in the pool neither as both Ethan and I are down with flu. Thank you Sidney for having us. I must go out and meet people more lah coz today, I found myself with many new faces and realised that I do not know how to mingle anymore :(

    Ya, I would go for the meatball pasta too. Looks good.

    • //

      Easier to eat also. With kids and all right. They ate that and cakes.

  • //

    I love this type of event. Pool side bbq, everyone chatting and relaxing. Now I am thinking of organising a poolside bbq soon. It has been a while since I had one in my clubhouse pool side.

    What? You lost your touch? Do not know how to socialize? Are you sure?? ^^

    Cute bracelet by Ethan. I like it too.

    • //

      Quick organise one. I’ll self-invite and fly over :D

  • //

    BBQ party that you don’t cook your own food, and it’s becoming a norm? Tsk… KL evolving to be more and more lazy and diva-sque >.<

    You merepek one lah, I don't believe you don't know how to mingle…

    • //

      Eh, if we are talking about 10 pax then of coz nicer to DIY lah but this is like 100++ pax leh. I definitely don’t wanna be the one slaving over the grill while the rest happily chill in the pool.

      I tak merepek leh. Really that day I was at the corner looking at people having fun …

  • //

    OOh….the idea of having someone else to do the BBQ is awesome. *I also darn lazy* when HB suggested we should go for BBQ with the kids some day. I hesitate although I know there will be lots of fun.

    • //

      You should do it. Small scale with HB and the kids will definitely be fun. Wanna have more fun? Get Ethan and Ayden to join too. Hahhhahahahahaha! *muka tak malu self invite to your BBQ*

  • //

    Seem like you and your family had lotsa fun there!

    • //

      Yes indeed :)

  • //

    wow…so sweet of Ethan to make a bracelet for you, and lots of nice bbq food there. come you didn’t wear a bikini ? it’s by the pool right ? :P

    • //

    I will go for the cakes rather than for the BBQ food. You look so shy in the last photo.

    • //

      I went for BBQ the first round. Then after that so many ppl hogging that area I went to gasak the cakes and pasta. Hahaha.

  • //

    Ethan is so sweet to make you such a cute bracelet! and Ayden prefers to crawl around than walk, he is so adorable!

    • //

      Yeah Ethan can be so sweet at times when he is ok but when he is not.. argh! Yet he is only going to be 8. Dunno what it’s like when he is a teenager -.-

  • //
