Attended my technically first ever Christmas party with friends (since previous years were usually extended family get-togethers) today! It was a modest affair held at Daphne’s place. Other than Daphne’s family and me, the other guests were Sze Yong, and Daphne’s friends Conny and Patrick (a married couple in the photography business, how interesting)!
We enjoyed a simple spread of bee hoon, stir fried broccoli, curry chicken with french bread and neatly sliced store-bought roasted leg of lamb (wondered where the bone was until Daphne showed me that it was in the fridge, haha). I loved the fried chicken and ate six drumlets and one wing! :D
After Connie and Patrick left early, we watched a rerun of the 2012 Mnet Asian Music Awards, and entertained ourselves by commenting on every single details. Anyway, the big winner of the awards event was undeniably Psy.
Halfway through the show, we cut the one kg plus cake that I had lugged all the way there. It was a blackforest cake from Four Leaves! (Did not consider buying a log cake as I find such cakes very ‘chop carrot’ (ie, a ripoff)!)
In line with my vow made in July 2008 that every cake that I buy will always carry a quirky message, this cake did too! :D
Keep Calm and Christmas On!!!
It was inspired by this image, which I found by googling……
Which, of course, was in turn inspired by the Keep Calm and Carry On propaganda posters!
The cake was delicious, although I wondered why its filling contained only cream and no cherries, as I thought it was supposed to! :P
