[Fatboyrecipes Updated With Scones For Su]
PHEW!!! What a weekend. The thing is, quite a number of things are unbloggable. Due to injured elbow, had to skip FPI's pump, which was just as well, coz my ride to the cowboy party arrived early, at 7.55pm. It wasn't by horse, by the way. Anyway, the party was for Girl Marrying Gwai Low, who will soon be moving to Boston. It was a birthday party cum hen night....Very odd combination, but very novel idea.
Anyway, the theme, Wild Wild West was inspired by the movie below. As was the following poster.
Actually, while unbloggable to a certain degree, suffice to say things were very much under control, and we did not end up like the 70 college kids the weekend before who got busted in a service apartment for a drug, booze and sex infested party. We were afterall all adults, and in fact, there was a father-daughter pair present for awhile, which speaks VOLUMES for the wholesome-ness of the whole event. Food was great, catered satay, tandoori, naan, etc.... Might not have been a bad idea to have ribs and corn, keeping in theme. But hey, we are a muhibbah people. The last pic above shows the barber chair treatment. 2 seconds of Chivas poured down your throat. (I can almost hear some people shaking their heads in disbelief). Chill out, 2 seconds of chivas is hardly half a pack.
Saturday morning....was supposed to bring the kids to FRIM (Forest Reserve Inst of Msia) for a waterfall picnic, with godson and parents, but errr, the party ended at 3.30am, so papa here was bushed. Anyway, it was scorching hot. They were entertained sufficiently by making a birthday cake for their grandmother instead. Well, the late night really took its toll, and I was pretty much exhausted all day, and dragged myself for body combat in the evening.... which was alright.
Dinner, hosted by Everybody Loves Raymond leader, was at this charming, quaint peranakan place in Central Market. Now there's a destination I haven't been to in yonks. RM9.10 for parking, only to have your car bombarded with crow droppings.
But the place, Precious Old China, was very nice. Food was good, and ambience really old world. From what I gather, fairly reasonably priced too. Twas nice to see everyone again, including Mr FFK.
Sunday church as usual. Very interesting sermon on fatherhood. Usual body step class in afternoon. Finished decorating the cake in the evening, and headed to Equatorial Bangi for mother in law's birthday. The cake was supposed to be a black forest, but the cake was too solid chocolate, as opposed to the usual sponges you get in commercial cakes. My sister in law complained that it was too hard, but bro in law had two slices. I guess I won't bother trying this particular recipe for Black forest again. Might as well just intersperse a normal chocolatey cake with the black forest ingredients, and no one will be the wiser.
