“Deep inside where nothing’s fine
I’ve lost my mind
You’re not invited, so step aside”
-Avenged Sevenfold (Song : Welcome To The Family)

Maybe I have not accepted the fact that The Rev (R.I.P) is no longer with the band. Which is why I put the photo of the band with him still in it. Oh well, life goes on..
On a happier note, it was a great weekend spent with the family. And extended family too. Fun, laughter, bonding and of course, food!
We organized a barbecue at Costa Sands Resort, in Pasir Ris, Singapore. A potluck actually, where everyone chipped in, bringing something to complete the whole event.
Starting off with yours truly. I marinated some chicken wings in ginger, garlic, onions, a few types of soy sauce and lots of black pepper the night before. On the day itself, we just threw it on the grill.
My uncle Rosli and his family brought Yu Char Kuay and Dried Bean Curds stuffed with vegetables. And a spicy sauce accompanied.
Cousin Azim’s wife, Nana, made egg sandwiches. So yummy!
My sister Yani made these kebabs, eaten with a cucumber raita. I hate cucumbers so I skipped the raita. But these are good! Fun to barbecue. And eat!
Fried Rice and Noodles also from Uncle Rosli.
Seabass which was smothered in a spicy chili sauce. Who brought the fish?
We even barbecued corn, sausages and marshmallows!
A gorgeous Red Velvet Cake from Cousin Khairin.
Cousin Saihah brought these mini Fruit Trifles. I can eat so many of these. They were that addictive!
Fresh fruits brought by Aunt Raida, if I’m not mistaken.
Quite a crowd. Even my dad (on the wheelchair) dropped by for a bit, despite his poor health.
The kids had fun swimming in the pool. As for me…
Poolside. Deck chair. Happy feet.
Some of us stayed over. We went out for a short night walk and ended up at Downtown East, where we stopped by the 24-hour McDonald’s and had ice-cream!
Hot Fudge Sundae at 1am? Yes, please!
