It Brings People Together

My friend A invited me to her
house to cook dinner for her.
I said 'no problemo!' to this
of course. 
But, she kind of forgot to mention 
that there will be 8 person coming 
over to have dinner. 8 handful of
peepz?! I was abit upset with my
friend A because:
1. I don't know any of these people.
2. I have never cooked for 8 people in my 
entire life - knowing that my failing
 chances just increased. 

My forgettable friend A helped me
a bit in the kitchen. At the end the
people were very friendly and 
sweet and appreciated my 
cooking. They even invited me
over to have breakfast with them
in the morning!

Brown rice with steamed vegetables and potatoes in Chinese
beansauce. By just checking at the empty plates, it was
a nice dinner.  

 Feeding leftover rice for the chickens! I find this grey one the prettiest of them all c:

 After finishing our dessert (cream & strawberry with meringue) we did some tarot card reading. 
Turned out we got a bit emotional at the end! Do you believe in tarot reading?

 A cute and spiritual teabag with different messages behind!

Food: milk and cereal

  1. Oh XD Kinda hard to forget that there will be 8 people?
    Looks yummy though!

    Stay cool with this weather!

  2. Oh! That was quite a situation you got pushed into but I'm glad it turned out well! I haven't tried tarot reading but am interested just to give it a shot. I'm quite neutral - don't really believe or not believe it! I heard it can really have some emotional/deep impact though!
