I told Pure Glutton when I got to her lovely abode, wah, you not scared ah, simply invite a bunch of food bloggers you've never met before to you house? What if we are stark raving mad stalkers? But obviously, one only has to read the blogs of these flogger glitterati, like Masak Masak, Precious Pea and Thamby of A Whiff of Lemongrass to know they are all zen like Goddesses of Peace, and of course, me being their disciple, stands to reason I am also zen like, the epitome of calm and patience.
It's always nice to meet food blogger's for the first time. Precious Pea and other dog lovers were over the moon, playing with Pure Glutton's two dogs, a father and son pair. Apparently Papa Dog was not amused at the undue attention given to the fruit of his loins.
We see the master chef at work here. It's almost a TV cooking show studio kitchen. Nothing like the sound of the sizzling hot wok, and aroma of freshly fried water convulvulus (convulva plural) aka kangkang, to set off the saliva glands.
We were treated to a lovely spread of nasi lemak. Unlike Ciki's experience of yore, this nasi lemak oozed lemak, and the aroma filled the air the minute the rice pot lid was lifted. It's like being in a coconut spa room.
Above; from top, clockwise: Deep Crispy Fried Ikan Bilis (anchovies), Water Convulva with Fresh Prawns, Pure Glutton's Signature Pork Rendang, (YUUMMMYY), hard boiled eggs, an extremely wonderful sambal, and freshly sliced cucumbers.
Precious Pea's curry chicken. Absolutely yummy.
Forgot to take pics of the other desserts. There were egg tarts brought by WMW, ...more nyonya kueh by The Nomad Gourmand, ....
Twas a lovely afternoon, in the presence of the bubbly Pure Glutton, and old friends, Hairy Berry, Thamby, Boolicious, Ciki of Cumi & Ciki, Precious Pea, WMW, Unka Leong, The Nomad Gourmand (still new friend la)....hmmm, have I missed out anyone?
Many thanks Pure Glutton for having us. We must do it again soon!!!
