a jovial gathering

Honest good humor is the oil and wine of a merry meeting, and there is no jovial companionship equal to that where the jokes are rather small and laughter abundant. – Washington Irving.
A sneak peek of a nostalgic cake for our cookbook pre-launch dinner on 23rd January, Thursday at U Factory (Gillman Barracks). There will be wine, homemade food & sweet treats and an intimate session of us sharing our cookbook.
Lately, I’ve been spending every evening writing, cooking for the family, testing recipes, staining the computer keyboard with greasy fingers, running errands for the event and also falling ill. It is a handful. Good things always take time and effort. We are almost there! A few more weeks of photoshoot and recipe testing then it’s off to print!
Lately, we have been trying to stay jovial with Chinese New Year on it’s way. Another month of indulging in good food and close company. A big reunion potluck with the cafe crew before everyone returns home, some good quality time with my family back in Malaysia and a big cuddle with my dog.
