People rarely ask this question in M@laysia. Women can go anywhere at almost anytime (with proper supervision of course). I can just get my car key, start the engine, be on the wheel to anywhere I like. In S@udi, there are many restrictions. I'm not that free anymore. I can't drive since no driver's license is given to a woman in S@udi. I can't go out alone because the rules say so.
Sometimes, I feel like talking to my friends - meaning having a face to face conversation instead of chatting (typing actually) via internet. Perhaps some women are created that way. We have to talk (that may explain why women blab a lot). I'm not the kind who like to spend time only chit chatting (like Che' Mon and Che' Temah - my own created figure) though. I think all bloggers are like that (otherwise, we wouldn't be blogging :)). But, having a gathering once in a while is good and quite releasing too. However, since there are constraints, we cannot go out by ourselves that easy.
How do the ladies (like me) get to meet then? We have to drag our husbands with us! Of course, the man can just drive his wife to the place and go back. But, if it involves so many women, naturally many men have to leave their wives there, right. So, its better for them to have their own gathering there too.
That was why I was pretty busy these few days. I had a potluck party on Thursday and dinner at Kak Sharimah's house on Friday. Heheee.. (to my adik-adik who wonder where 'Kak Neeza had been missing', now you get the answer :P).
The details of our potluck party:
Venue : Ne$ma Compound (Tan's residential area)
Date : 27 March 2008 (Thursday)
Time : 6.30pm - 10.30pm
Roy's (prepared by As) - 2kg Beef and 2kg Chicken Satay
Joe's (prepared by Lieza) - Sambal kacang, potato salad c0ncorde hotel style, marinated chicken wings and black pepper sausages
Shariz's (prepared by Madina) - Tuna and Egg Sandwiches, marinated chicken wings
Tan's ('prepared' by Amy at kayefc) - 2 big bucket fried chicken, fries, coleslaw and buns
Shahril's (prepared by Neeza) - spagetti bolognaise with mushroom and creme caramel
Pok Li (wife's not here) - purchased many kind of juices
Wow! Different kind of posting this time huh! Thanks Fadzila for teaching me to use pic@sa :) (I'm a computer moron... huhuuuuu..)
Needless to say, the ladies had been busy cooking since early morning (Lieza started much earlier since kuah kacang need sometime to well blend). Upon arriving at the place, all we did was BBQing, munching, talking and running around the pool to catch the kids (hahahaha!! we don't want anybody to get wet..)
From the picture, I could say that women enjoyed the party the most (except for having to run around the pool part heheheee..). If its not due to some of the guys had to work on the next day, probably we could have been sitting there longer (pantang jumpa... ;))
Wow!!! Pretty tulips huh.. These are a courtesy from Kak Sharimah. She just came back from Sw3den that noon. She brought us those tulips. We divided the tulips to 5 - As, Lieza, Madina, Amy and myself! Since the tulips won't last long, I took some pictures of them, hoping they will live longer in my eyes :)
On the next day, which is also yesterday, Kak Sharimah invited us to her house. She prepared cinnamon rolls, sw3dish honey biscuits and waffles. She taught us to eat them in sw3dish way! I only took pictures of her purple tulips (tulipurple, cantik tak? hehehee..) and cinnamon rolls :)
That's all folks! I need to cook for lunch early since the girls are home (it's spring break now).
