For New Year’s Eve, rif and I decided to stay in and have a few close friends over. Last year, we had no mood to celebrate because we were robbed just a day before and I was super paranoid about leaving the house.
It was a potluck party so I made devil curry chicken from scratch for the first time. I knew I wouldn’t have time to cook it on Monday or the day itself as I was at work, so Sunday was spent buying groceries and cooking. Am glad our friends enjoyed the curry, although my in-laws think it’s not spicy, sour and oily (I don’t like my curries too oily though) enough. Seriously, his family’s tolerance for chilli is amazing I tell you! 😯
We had so much food; there were plenty of leftovers to last us till the weekend. Next day, his family came over for lunch and brought more food. Mum in-law made Nyonya otak otak, bro in-law brought pasta and sis in-law brought roast duck and her homemade macarons for dessert. We were stuffed.
Treated myself to a pedicure session in Bangsar and then ran errands in Bangsar Village before heading to my parent’s for dinner. Sisters did the cooking so we had fried chicken while I bought a roast duck from Village Roast. Mum wasn’t too pleased with the amount of meat and grease we were consuming but it was New Year’s Day so she let it slip. 😀
Despite losing a few friends last year, I’m glad I still have some who genuinely cares for me. I guess 2013 was a trying year in general for me, and I’m looking forward to a better year in 2014. Hoping for the best! 🙂
