Why cancel a party just because the original reason for throwin the party was not around?
So, we spent the morning right up till the evening preparing stuff for the potluck. Cutting and chopping, washing and well, working in general! My sister and I picked modified Italian food as our theme with a dish of our version of Bruschetta. Next we decided to make Stuffed Portobello Mushrooms using local ingredients (ie substituting Italian sausages with Malaysian made sausages) and making up the recipe as we went through with the process.
Stuffed Portobello mushrooms
There was a barbie pit with the fire roaring, sting ray cooked with lots of chilli made by an aunt, some jellies, one made by my sister and I and another made by my mom, and a few other things. Some music, and whole bunch of lively people, worries about work and exams forgotten for a bit
A pretty good way to spend a day...
