A happy potluck night

Yvonne aka Ah Hua Whatsapp me one day and asked if I am free to join their potluck comes birthday celebration for our dai koh, Khoo.
After much consideration (LOL), I decided to bring Aden along. But I sorta warned him before going and asked him to behave that night :p

It was a potluck night so each of us contributed some food. There were pizza, putu mayong, satay, fried drumsticks, fried beehoon and fruits, and drinks of course :p
Guess what did I bring? No prize for guessing it right though, haha xD

The cake for the birthday man

That's the birthday man (in grey shirt) and also the host. The other 3 also celebrate their birthday in February so we asked them to join in together

Make a wish and blow the candle!

Group photo before we left. We look like one big happy family, don't we? ^^

They're actually my dear ex colleagues, with some new staffs whom I never met before. Heard that they are extremely busy and stressful working in Toyo now, that's why Yannie and Yvonne hardly blog these days........

So did Aden behaved that night? Erm not really, he din't want to share toys with Khoo's son and tend to beat him :0
I was so embarrassed and before I left, I actually apologized to Khoo for Aden's misbehave. But I guess that's what happen when toddlers play together?

By the way, I brought fried beehoon for the potluck ;) Overall, tt was short but a fun night!

Til then, enjoy your weekend peeps!

    2. nice lah having potluck, everyone shares the cost and also the chores, no need the host 拼了老命 to get everything done and to serve so many people hor?? and it's a great idea to celebrate the birthday for all whose birthday fall in the same month huh??

      come to this hor?? errr, i remember last time you all celebrated birthday in the company right?? now the Japanese got in, and also you all separated in two different locations, so tough to celebrate together and that's why have to do it offsite at one of the colleague's house??

    3. yeah, i can see Yannie and April, Ah Hua and Avery, Hayley and Aden.. and all also brought one kid along, more and cannot control the situation?? haha.. i wonder if May and Lil Chi will jealous they were left at home while their siblings can follow mommy to party - or maybe they felt lucky that they didn't have to follow?? :p

      BTW whose kid is that who joined the birthday "boys and girls" to blow candles?? his birthday also??

    5. Taiping got problem! But not as serious as your area I guess! Haze is here, and I hate it!! Really pray our dear God shower us with rain!
      Bring water from Taiping lake? LOL! Impossible, cause it has turned into a desert now :(

      Yes, I am thankful that my ex colleagues still remember to invite me!! 红牌啊姑, haha of course no la! I am kind and friendly that's why they remember me lo! xD

      Yes, potluck is easier and can be fun too!
      Definitely cannot celebrate birthday in the office now, not even eating in the office during working hours! Very strict now.

      May got tuition, Lil Chi was there leh, can't see him in the photo?
      That kid is the host's son, joined in for fun, hehe~

      Haha yala I know, but still 礼貌上,还是得说声不好意思嘛!毕竟人家是host!

  12. Nice gathering... good to meet up with colleagues again, whether old or new... your Ayden not sharing toys? Maybe he hasn't experienced sharing with other kids before.. but good to tell him when the need arises... :)

    1. Well, I guess that's because he owns his toys all by himself at home, no one rebut with him, but when playing with others, he won't want to share sometimes.

    一堆小孩闹在一块儿,很多事情难以避免,能解决就没事了。阿老常说,小孩子嘛,就是要这样开开心心玩来玩去才是童年。XDD

  21. I always enjoy pot luck gatherings at homes with school mates too. I feel the warmth and fun more than eating in restaurants. At the restaurant, we order, makan around a big table and no individual gossips & private talk. Then good night & bye!
