There was supposed to be a Babi yesterday (Saturday) afternoon, but there was a ThunderStorm over Western Australia, hence the Babi never happened. The Babi was supposed to ba a small birthday celebration for a friend of mine.
Ok, maybe I should not type it as Babi, but rather, Barbie instead, which would not make the implication in the previous sentences any less weird anyway. In Australia, the slang Barbie/Babi simply refers to an outdoor Barbeque/BBQ. Get it? Babi = BBQ ?
Since it was raining quite heavily, we just had to come up with an alternative, a Plan B if you may say, and improvise what we had in hands to continue on with the celebration. We have all the food and materials ready, but instead of making a full on outdoor party, we turned it into an indoor food fest.
Introducing the main man behind who made everything in event possible, Chef Jak Yew with one of his many cool dishes....
Jak Yew and Egg Sushi
All the following food are prepared by Jak Yew, unless otherwise mentioned.
Tuna Sushi with Avocado, Cucumber and Carrot fillings
The supposedly to-be-BBQ-ed Chicken wings were roasted in the oven instead.
Of course I also contributed to the celebration not only by having a huge stomach, but also making some food of my own. I made two dishes only, Deep Fried Wanton and Fried Chicken Wings.
Deep Fried Wanton
Unfortunately I do not have a picture to show you guys how my chicken wings look like, but if you want to imagine one, make sure it looks better than KFC.
The People Savouring the Food
The Birthday Boy, Khee Hwa
Shirley and the Chicken Wing
It was a simple and sweet birthday celebration, nothing overly lush and expensive, but rather done with much love and care. You gotta admit, much love was poured into those adorable looking sushis !! I tell you, its the effort that counts, and making those food above was no easy task. Kudos to Jak Yew.
To Khee Hwa, thanks so much for being a great friend. I wish you the best and may blessings flow abundantly into your life.
Happy Birthday !!
