tea with the p.schoolers.

This post should have come earlier. I have been caught up recently and forgot that my blog turned 2 on 1 Dec. This coincidentally is also my 100th post since I started this blog 2 years back!

Back on 1 Dec, exactly a week after my Korean cookout, I caught up with the p.gals for a tea cum bbq party. I had a blast and I'm sure I speak the same for the rest of them. As usual, we shared our life updates, new haircuts, laughed at jokes, did silly things and spoke abt stuff. Speaking of silly, our very intelligent Masters graduate, Da was slapping all sorts of condiments on her scone and did not even realise that she had been happily swallowing clumps of mayonnaise mistaken for cream!

Liz really did a fantastic job. We had so much to eat. Homemade meatballs, salami, scones, cheese spreads and nice tea coolers for our afternoon tea.

When the bbq got started, we had beef kebabs, chicken on lemongrass skewers. She even topped it off with a chocolate dessert and VODKA WATERMELON! Basically, she injected vodka into a watermelon and left it to freeze overnight. We were ooh-ing and aah-ing over the watermelon when it came out of the fridge, added more vodka and basically wiped it out by 6pm. Yup. Vodka at home. At 6pm. Us girls. Haa...

Everytime I get together with this group of friends, I feel like I'm back in school. Whatever pressure that I get from adulthood seems to just disappear for that few hours when we're together. I mean, I have known them since the time I was 7 or 8 years old so it's hard to not get sucked into the "schooldays" thing when I'm with them. I suddenly realised how much we've grown since then that day. Some have either graduated with Masters, about to graduate on a 2nd degree or starting a 2nd degree course. Then there are those who found new friends.

Although time has flown by so quickly, I'm glad that after all this while, we're all still together.
