BBQ gathering

We woke up early. Mom and dad went marketing to get fresh prawns and meat. Panpan and me prepared the ingredients. Then after that mom helped me with the washing and cutting and seasoning. Dad helped us cut the aluminium foil into proper sizes for us to wrap the food. Mom also cooked green bean soup. Panpan's dad cooked fried rice for 15 pax. Lots of preparation and hardwork apart from ordering some stuff at  Total damage was $170+

That's me in my gloves cutting the prawns' whiskers.
I wore the gloves to prevent my hands from smelling. Mom kept hurrying me and Panpan said I'm too gu-niang and gentle with the prawns maciam doing eyebrow trimming for them. LOL

It started to drizzle at 3 pm. Luckily the rain stopped at 5 pm. Panpan started the fire successfully. Slowly, our friends came. Busy with food and entertaining our guests.

I know my hair looks quite shitty now. I am enduring for a few more weeks and then will go for a massive reconstruction work of cutting, colouring and treatment.

Clara and Jacelyn helped me with washing and clearing up as my security guards came and shoo us away at 10.15 pm. They also helped me carry stuff back home. Thanks. Thanks to all my friends who came and agreed to help us for our big day.
