It all started from one of my FB postings. My foodie friend commented something and one comment led to another and we ended up planning for a potluck. I volunteered to bring a POT since I don’t cook and suggested for Choi Yen to bring the LUCK. We pulled Xiang into the picture as we know he has a nice house to host us :D
Just an impromptu idea that became a reality but we are all required to cook something. I am not allowed to bring just the pot :( I squeezed my brain dry and finally thought of Coke Chicken. My boys love my coke chicken so I thought why not?
I thought wrong. Cooking for the boys and cooking for a party is two different thing. My Coke Chicken when done in such big volume doesn’t turn out as well as I like it to be :(
I woke up early to cook this Coke Chicken but it did not have that nice glaze that my usual Coke chicken do. Hmm… Anyway, too late to do anything anymore so we proceeded to drive to Xiang’s place.
When I got there, I saw Xiang checking on his lasagna and I thought to myself, “Wah! That looks GOOD!” The Garfield in me got super excited.
There! Xiang’s lasagna. Picture perfect and approved by Garfield.
And then I see Choi Yen preparing her huge bowl of salad with honey and mustard dressing.
Oh gosh. I’m starting to let out cold sweat. This is THE ultimate salad. Bacon, walnut, strawberries, cherry tomatoes, corn, hard boiled eggs and the list goes on..
Jenn came next and started to fry her signature belacan chicken and pork. I think Xiang had just seen my Coke chicken hence that expression -.-
Jenn’s belacan chicken and pork looks like THIS! Everyone can’t help but curi makan some while she was frying those.
I just wanted to bury my head in the sand at that very moment but there was no sand, only solid tiles in Xiang’s house :(
As if that is not enough, Jenn also brought this:
Freshly baked Ham and Cheese Quiche that is so good she can start selling them already.
Xiang also prepared cocktail for us. But wait, side track a bit. Let me introduce you to Jun Fook (that handsome young chap at the back). He is not married (macam Xiang) but unlike Xiang, he doesn’t cook. BUT what he brought is a hit with the kids and ME!
Jun Fook brought Baskin Robbins ice-cream cake! Drools! I bagi dia 5 stars. Girls take note. He is single and I think still available :D
Xiang also prepared dessert for us.
Xiang’s fabulous French Apple Tart.
By now my heart is palpitating like mad. I’m not at any chapalang potluck party, I’m witnessing Master Chefs LIVE in action! Can I hide my Coke chicken now?
While the super Chefs are all busy in action in the kitchen, Darling kept the kids occupied with Xiang’s massage chair.
After a while we finally get to dig into the scrumptious lunch prepared by my talented foodie friends.
We had a really great time feasting and catching up on each other’s lives. We should do this more often but next time I think I’ll go buy Ayamas or something and tipu as my own cooking >_<
