Old Friends, New Friends - PhotoHunt
These porcelain figurines are a wedding present from a good friend who bought them during a trip in Japan. She has been staying in Holland for the past year and would be visiting me in Singapore for a weekend in November on the way home to Jakarta.
Time flies, our friendship spans more than 3 decades. The figurines have been with me for 23 years. :)
I stay in touch with old friends while still making new ones.
At a cooking class which I attended, I made friend with a young lady who has been attending cooking lessons at community centres in preparation for her marriage. A complete novice when it comes to cooking, she wanted to impress her in-laws.
We were learning to cook local spicy dishes.The dishes taught at this particular class were not really designed for novices. Fortunately for my young friend, there were many seniors who gave her good tips on cooking. :)
The instructor taught us to make sauces from scratch and demonstrated how using traditional and modern kitchen equipment could improve the tastes of our dishes.
One of the ladies volunteered to keep stirring the pot of ingredients to prevent burning. We learnt three yummy dishes that day.
My young friend and I have signed up for a lesson on how to whip up our very own Christmas feast from scratch taught by a top hotel chef. Our families can look forward to a sumptuous Christmas feast. :)
