Thanksgiving Mass

My mum invited a priest over to our place for a thanksgiving mass yesterday. We wanted to thank God for all the blessings that he has showered us throughout the year and may He continues to bless us and guide us throughout our life. We prepared some food for our invited guests, mostly were choir members and a few from BEC. My mum was the chef while I was just a kitchen helper. So after the mass, all of us enjoyed the food together.

Potato-topped chicken pie (Shepherd's pie) - I made this for the first time... still acceptable :)

Dinner at Kent's Kitchen

Instead of cafe-cafe, we went to Kent's Kitchen this time. It is located just opposite Everwin, near the new bus terminal. This cafe serves limited types of food but mostly are nice and yummy. Take a look at the pictures...

Just three of us but we ordered 4 plates of dishes. At the end we couldn't finish them.. wasted.. Don't be so greedy next time.. :p

Hmm.. yum yum..

Few days ago,

Agnes: Lao shi, I got cakes to sell.
Me: Cakes??! What cakes?!
Agnes: Cakes for chinese new year!
Me: That's early!!
Agnes: Where got early.. two more months to go only. Got biscuits also. I got samples. Do you want to try out?
Me: Ok, bring it to the college.
Agnes: I will.. and please let other lao shi know also.
Me: Don't worry. I will help you to promote.

So, today my student brought some cakes and biscuits for us to try out. We did make some orders from her and most probably will get our orders few days before cny. Take a look of the photos and see how tempting they are. We were very full after trying out ALL the cakes and biscuits. So we skipped our lunch. Save money... hehe...

Excited, Nervous or Anticipate?

What is my feeling now? To tell the truth, I'm not really sure. 9 days left before I can announce the good news to all. But maybe I can't tell cos I might not be allowed to do so. Anyway, wish everyone all the best in all your undertakings :)
