Shubho Noboborsho

Patricia threw a surprise Noboborsho (new year) party last night for Hakim, her husband from Bangladesh. He was surprised, alright, to return home to a house full of people.

Kudos to Patricia for pulling off a clandestine operation with aplomb. Emails were circulated very carefully amongst the guests, discussing about food, drinks and so forth without her hubby's knowledge.

Everyone arrived according to schedule, especially the leading man Hakim. There would be no party if he couldn't be home on time!

His loving wife, who's German and a vegetarian, prepared a spread of Indian dishes including dahl, pumpkin curry, spicy lady's fingers and rice. I contributed masala chickpeas while the rest brought fruits and drinks. The food was so good, I could eat it everyday!

A multi-racial gathering - Sandrine from France, Graeme fron New Zealand, Patricia and Christiane from Germany, Hakim from Bangladesh, Aya from Japan and the rest of us (Bev, CH and me) from Singapore.

I'm half a vegetarian now :) Once in a while, we get a chicken and eat it for a week... or go to the brew pub and have an elk burger, sometimes we eat fish/prawns too, but we try to eat more like vegetarians most of the time.
