It’s amazing looking back at how fast 2005 has come and gone. 2005 is best remembered for how God has blessed TY and I with wonderful family and friends, a stable job, exciting ministry, and good health! To top off this great year, TY, Guppy, Pris, MC and I decided to offer a sacrifice of burnt offering… ok ok, cook beef curry stew to appease our insatiable appetites that hasn’t diminished at all despite all the festive feasts and goodies we’ve been partaking in recently.
MC & Gab skinning the cow. Actually, I’ve no idea what they’re doing and I hope their intense attention directed towards my sink is not due to them dropping something valuable down it.
Gab: Pay attention now. This is how you slice beef, i.e. with a smile.
Gab: Pay attention now. This is how you wash rice, i.e. with your hands.
MC – Master Chef. Don’t play play.
Pris finally getting into the action by demonstrating some nifty and dextrous stirring action.
All ready to tuck in after 1 hour of grocery shopping and 2 hours of cooking! (And it only takes a fraction of the time to gobble everything up)
The menu for tonight…
After finishing dinner, sharing interesting personal stories with one another and washing up, we had about an hour to go till countdown. In order to pass the time, we tuned the computer to Channel News Asia and played a few rounds of SETS. An interesting observation was that Gab seemed to play much better while munching on grapes at the same time. We also got to see the hilariously animated side of MC when he gets frustrated (pity I didn’t take a video).
Finally, prompted by the unbearable screaming of Gurmeet Singh on TV, we counted down to the new year and shook each other hands while humming Auld Lang Syne. And that was it, 2005 was over. *sniff*
Clearly the most popular person in the room, busy replying to 2 dozen or so Happy New Year smses while the rest of us watch on.
HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE!!! May God continue to shower His love and blessings to you in 2006!
