My fried rice noodles (char kway teow) has been one of their favourite dishes so I offered to cook up a plate plus bring my mango pudding. That dessert of mine gets repeated a lot during the hot summer season.

NW also invited some other friends who had not seen FW in a while too. So it ended up being 11 adults and 1 cute little 8 month old baby boy (so so cute). Most of these friends are people I know from my previous church so it did feel like a reunion. It was nice to see these familiar faces and catch up on what is going on in their lives.
So in the midst of all the gabbing, we ate the variety of food served. FW ended up cooking the following:
Mixed salad (one bowl with chopped chilli and the other without chilli)
Slow cooked Beef Burmese Style (it was very tender)
Grilled Chicken with lemongrass and tumeric (apparently a Cambodian recipe). I must say it was quite delicious. A side of blanched beans balanced out the main dishes.
We found some space to have dessert which turned out to be pineapple and carrot cake, mango pudding served with cherries.
It turned out to be a pleasant evening, there were lots of photos taken of the various groups.
FW has gone back to Melbourne and I look forward to our next 'reunion'.
