Thai Feast at Chin Yin's

Even though Malaysians have always been pampered with the luxury of around-the-clock eateries--hawker centers, restaurants and mamak stalls; more and more people prefer dining in, cooking wholesome meals and entertaining guests with gourmet dinners at home.

My girlfriends and myself are no exception to that. Unlike Sex and the City icon, Carrie Bradshaw, who claimed to use her oven only for storage, we decided to take the roles that most ladies dread and be Martha Stewarts in our kitchens. Simply put, we are frequently having dinners and get-together in one another's home, and most importantly everyone will make a dish or two according to the theme of the dinner.

Chin Yin was very excited to announce the theme of our first dinner--Thai. With twenty odd emails circulating in the past few weeks, everyone confirmed the dishes prepared and we finally met at Chin Yin's with our wholesome versions of Thai famous dishes--Thai salad, pineapple fried rice, chicken meatball with peanut sauce, tom yam soup and green curry.

Everyone was indulging in the meal while exchanging notes on ways to improve culinary skills. We also caught up with one another in our work, life, politics and relationships. The late-comer had to, well... wash dishes and doggie-bag all the leftover home. On that evening, Sheila had the "honor" to accomplish both tasks.

So ladies, let's get our cutleries and cooking utensils ready for yet another
of fun, food and friends!!!
