Year end countdown party in Penang, 2012 倒数夜


Penang was the last stop for Jessie to meet up bloggers during her short visit back home here. And just so coincidence my hubby has to attend a wedding dinner there, so i grap this opportunity to follow him and joined this countdown party at Eileen's house..We had a great time there , so many yummy foods that prepared by Eileen, Joceline, Mandy, Casey, Angie and San San...

I brought them the macarons and Siew Yok (roast pork), too bad my crispy Siew Yok turned soggy when i reached there..

They are so thoughtful, even arranged games for us to play..Mandy was the instructor, i was impressed with her that she still remembered those games we played during our schooling times..These games really bring back my childhood memory !! But i feel i am too old to play these games now, my legs were cramped after played the games, hahaha..
