Steamboat Partayyy

The tradition of the Lim sistas is to hold a steamboat partayyy at least once a couple of days before mom comes home. My mom has been on a routine flying into Abu Dhabi for a couple of months and then come home for about 2-3 months before flying off again to be with my dad whom is working there.

This time around, we held the partayyy 2 days before mom is back so that we can dirty the place and clean it all up in one shot. That's why I was on leave on last Friday to clear up the mess. However, no matter how best we tried to clean up the house, mom still has her complains and her nagging from the moment she stepped into the house until a few days later. According to her, we some sort "destroyed" her house?!!! Anyways, my mom is a person whom is very obsessed with cleanliness because she happens to be able to spot even a tiny speck of dust!

Most of them who attended were from our college - Inti Subang Jaya. Let me see if I could recall all the names - Jon, Greg, Wei Mei, Daniel, Param, Joshen, Ashwin, David, Jen, Oliver & gf (oops I have forgotten her name), and Jovin (Ziling's schoolmate). Including the 3 of us, there were pratically 15 of us fitted in a small house. It was a potluck steamboat and thus everyone contributed some food. We had really big prawns (Wei Mei & Daniel), Cuttlefish & Squids (Jovin), Fishballs (Jon), Meatballs and his RM6 a packet of mihun (Greg), Tofu, fish noodles & Absolut Peach together with the mixers from Yiling's friends.


One table for the old people......


One for the young...

Highlight dessert of the night - Watermelon infused with vodka & kwai fei lychee liquor (brainchild of Yiling). Instead of serving you the ordinary watermelon, we had it infused with liquor by cutting a hole in the watermelon earlier. Therefore, when the watermelon is cut into pieces, there will be some taste of alcohol in it! Absolutely brilliant!


Now, how about a new Absolut Watermelon?!!


It was like a reunion of alumni in the comfort of our own home. Not only we had food and booze, we had some interesting games. The oldies were of course playing the poker cards, the youngsters were playing games that were deemed a little bit too embarrassing for the oldies like us. They had this game where everyone has to contribute one "action" and one "adjective" by writing it on 2 separated piece of paper. Then the paper is folded and put into 2 separate bowls. Everyone will have their turn picking 1 piece of paper each from the bowls and then act it out. So imagine you get "kiss the chair" and then the next piece says "passionately" or "lick someone's chest" & "like there's no tomorrow". ROTFL....

Santa came early.

It was fun but the aftermath - disastrous. I have to sweep and mop the floors a few times. There were so much rubbish and lucky there wasn't many dishes to be washed because we used polystyrene bowls instead! So clever uh? But it was nice to be seeing everyone that night. We were all still a crazy bunch.

Anybody wants? LOL!!!)...

next time must 'preserve' the watermelon for few days for it to fully absorb the liquor. i think kwei fei lychee goes pretty well with it. and to be honest, the watermelon vodka was pretty damn good!

Wow! Must be really fun! But cleaning up is not so fun - that's the only reason why I don't like to have party in my house! Unless there are people to help in the cleaning up - I don't mind to wash the dishes : )
