Potluck @ Moroccan Pavilion4:46 PM
I'm back because there's free WiFi near my house. LOL
I am excited to be able to blog again I haven't slept in two days trying to find a perfect template, edit them and then edited photos for other blog posts.
I am going to blog about a potluck that me and my friends planned in less than a month. It was actually my idea. I saw my favorite blogger (Li Chi Pan) posted a lot of picnic photos on her Instagram account so I decided to try and organize one with the girls. Plus, I thought it would be a great idea to see my girls again and just.. chill and unwind.
This is my first time ever to do something like this. Well, normally my late-mom would be in charge of the food, tableware and cutlery. But I know I can't really rely on other people forever. At some point, we all have to do everything all by ourselves.
We promised each other to do something like this again more professionally (and more food of course!) and choose some better place. Ayu recommended this place because I told her I wanted to have a picnic somewhere I can see the lake instead of grass.. and people.. and more grass.. and more people.
We went to Moroccan Pavilion on Sunday 30th August (y'all Malaysian knew what day it was don't you?) so the place was packed with people and future bride & groom (more than 16 couples and yes I counted them all ) in their respective wedding attire. I assumed they were taking a pre-wedding photos. We walked for about 10 minutes to our base and I was sweating like crazy because the basket that I carried was so heavy. And I looked like a fat witch because of makeup that was smudged you don't wanna see a photo of that.
I can explain..
I was so into taking photos when suddenly Ayu spat out her drink and yelled at me (well, she always yelling even when she's talking), "WEH, YOU WERE STANDING ON MY SHOES YOU IDIOT!" omg I was died out of laughter.
|I was so sweaty I decided to tied my hair with a plastic spoon for some air. Thanks Anis for the photo.|
|Ayu asked all of us to wear white.|
If you (or want to..) hanging out with me, you need to bare in mind that photography comes first over food unless I'm really really hungry or the food is something that I had for so many times before that I don't really give a damn anymore so it's fine. Plus it was getting dark so I want to use the natural lighting as much as I can.
Now here comes the food!
I managed to run to IKEA the day before the Potluck to buy some bottles for the lemonade that I made, a huge bowl for Dried Prawn Fritters and a few glasses and other tableware. Ayu made Curry Noodle, Ashley and Anis made Pasta and I bought a Chocolate Cake because we all knew we still gonna have plenty more space for dessert.
This was only half of them. We also had a DIY Cookie Ice Cream, homemade nachos and some other food that I don't remember.
The photo was not that good because I was rushing, trying to chase the natural lighting. Hope to do something like this again in the future with more food. I forgot who it was but one of these guys said "let's have a picnic by the Han River next year when we are in Seoul!" Insha Allah guys. If God wills it, then it will happen, it's just a matter of time. Thanks A-Team for making my wish came true and Thanks for the delicious food.
