On the New Year's Eve, we had no celebration or whatsoever countdown party due to work obligations. It was hell of a busy night that night, and I only managed to get home half an hour before the clock strikes 12, thank goodness! My boi and I spent the rest of our night (roughly an hour and a half) "dissecting" the 2.6 kg whole turkey and marinated it with a secret recipe of mine: five-spice powder, light soy sauce, sweet soy sauce, sugar, sesame oil, Hua Tiao Chinese cooking wine, and garlic mince (don't forget to thank me if you were about to steal my recipe k =p). The turkey turned out to taste and smell so good, and the meat was so tender (another secret to pick up on how to cut and handle the meat before marinating). The next morning, we made up our New Year celebration with an outdoor barbecue at the West Creek Park together with several other close friends of us.
Some fresh ingredients like zucchinis, tomatoes, red onions...
Mushrooms, capsicums, sweet potatoes and more...
Let's heat up the stove and start barbecue now!
My bangs is getting on my nerves.
It's too long to leave them all at the front, yet too short to put them to the side =[
Some delicious pork sausages and mushroom.
Cynthia still looked a bit tired after a busy night on the night before.
Daren and Vera.
Veny and Kevin.
Romeo is getting ready for a walk in the park.
A beautiful butterfly we saw somewhere near the lake.
We waited quite a while for it to open its wings.
Lastly, groupie of four girls! The weather was pretty good that morning, just that it got cloudy a little bit in the afternoon and started drizzling when we were about to leave.
