Coincidently, it was Chime's birthday... I only discovered it in that afternoon and luckily happened to bake Green Velvet Cake.... so we sang him birthday song and he sliced the cake. We were all too busy that forgot to snap photo of the birthday do. Anyway I hope his wishes will come true (which he did before slicing the cake).

Peter wanted to learn making Onde-Onde and he successfully made them all by himself... I didn't count but I think they were more than 50 pieces...bravo Peter....! The filling was authentic Malacca palm sugar sourced by Shu.... tastes awesome and everyone loved it!
|My imported kitchen assistant from Netherland... LOL|
Mazlina volunteered to help me making Sardine Quiches. She was amazed how easy to make them and this was the first menu that cleared before everything else.... served hot from the pie maker producing crispy pastry with delicious filling... ready in less than 10 minutes! Well done Mazlina!
The American couple helped me with the salad.... first time meeting Sarah & love her for her warm and helpful hands in the kitchen. TQ so much for helping with the salad and tea! We all had fun in the kitchen.... I had big help from everyone.... usually just me in the kitchen and really enjoyed the company!
I purposely chose Chapati in the menu to please Sawinder who has been away from home for several months so I volunteered him to help me cooking the chapati... not for long though... he only managed to cook 5 pieces and ran away from heat after one round.... I'm going to make up for the loss one day...LOL!
Luckily Jason came to rescue and helped me to cook the remaining 20 pieces while I was doing the rolling.... nice boy! hehee
Lastly, we all had a chance for a group pose... two more arriving later & missed the photo session. For the remaining half of the office who cannot make it, we'll catch-up some other day but I certainly can do with helping hands....hehe.
