BBQ Potluck

Dear Diary,

Don’t you feel blessed going to work everyday knowing full well that you have co-workers who click with you? Colleagues who make your office a happier place? Friends whom you can spend hours with without getting bored or restless?

I resigned from 7 Eleven to become a fulltime housewife at the end of 2009, but my friendship with ex-colleagues remains till today. Majority of them have moved on to greener pastures but somehow we manage to meet up every now and then.

It has been awhile since our last get together at DesaWaterpark. It all started with only a comment in Facebook about old times and how long it has been since we meet each other. One of us then suggested to have another get together followed by consensus of the majority. Soon, plans were made and attendances were being confirmed. It was agreed by all to have a barbeque potluck at my place on a Saturday last March.

The day arrived with anticipation of jolly times among peers. One by one they arrived. When everyone safely turned up, we went down to recreational area. There are BBQ pits besides swimming pools provided by the management.


Entrees - Baked Macaroni, Fried Noodles, Chicken Rendang & Fried Rice

While fire was being lit up, foods were being arranged. It was quite a feast, I tell you. We caught up with each other’s latest news while waiting for marinated chicken, sausages, shrimp and squids to be grilled. Our kids played and swam together, having their own fun activities.

Drink - Sunquick Mango. Desserts - Burger Malaysia, Agar-agar, Kek Gulung, Puding Roti Marble, Cucur Badak, Mini Donut & Fruits

Later in the evening, the event was brought upstairs to my house. We continued talking and eating. What’s even better is that our spouses can get along. We’re like one big happy family. It was a successful event with the last guest left our house around 9pm.

I’m very thankful I have friends who keep in touch even though we’ve parted ways. Though we’re now on different paths, all the memories we shared will be cherished forever.

So looking forward to our next get together...
