Good Sunday

I'm usually so caught up with housework and errands during the weekends that I have little time for anything else. However, all it takes is for someone to organise a gathering and the weekend suddenly becomes a fun-filled one.

Amy wanted to meet up for breakfast at Marine Parade but when we showed up at her apartment with 3 kinds of cheeses, ham, crackers and bread, nuts, dried cherry, capsicum and radish (from my garden), we decided to eat in the comfort of her home instead.
Amy supplied enough booze - 2 bottles of red wine and cloudberry liquor - to see us through the long afternoon.

It didn't cross my mind to bring Christmas gifts, so I was quite surprised to receive one from Amy.

And another from Beverly.

The teapot from Beverly is fantastic. Now I can make myself a pot of green tea in the office every morning.

Our spirits were high (thanks to the copious amount of alcohol) and conversation never stopped flowing amongst the ladies while the man (only one) kept himself entertained.

At some point, someone (I think it was me) realised she had kids and dog at home waiting for dinner, so we went to the coffee shop nearby for an early dinner.

We came across a flea market along the way and I almost ended up with a couple of dresses. Thank goodness, Amy, (the sensible one) herded us away from the temptations.

For dinner, Amy ordered a platter of her favourite roast duck and meat. We also had rojak, curry vegetables and achar.

What a lovely way to spend a Sunday.
