Christmas just passed, now we just have to counting the days to welcoming New Year 2013. I usually spend New Year’s eve with Bo’s family. Now I’ve been invited by my Fitness First Pluit Village members to join them for New Year’s eve party this year. Sound fun. First, they planned to do Barbeque party, nice idea.. but I think it will be troublesome to prepare if it’s not well organized. So I suggested to do Potluck party. A Potluck is a gathering of people where each person or group of people may contribute a dish of food prepared by the person or the group of people, to be shared among the group. It’s easier and they agree. It is my first time doing Potluck party.
The confirmed Potluck party members are Evelyn Widjaja (Jun Ki), Evelyne Shen (Epe), Debby, Julius, Johan, Maretha Dian, Anthony Kesuma and me. I asked them to wear colorful shirt, for colorful future ahead (hehe). We will gathering at Evelyn Jun Ki’s house. She said she will cook my favorite fish dish, yummy. Debby will cook some vegetables dish and making Ice cream crepes. I’m gonna bring Red Velvet Cake. It’s gonna be fun.
31 December 2012, I can leave from office at 4 pm. So I went to the bakery and buy the Red Velvet Cake. After that I waited Epe at Emporium Mall. She’s going to buy Watermelon and Snacks. Then we’re going to Jun Ki’s house. Debby, Johan, Julius have been in the house. I can see the table is full of food. Johan cooked fish dish too and spicy potato with ‘pete’, Julius bring his Grandmother’s chicken dish. All seem nice and delicious.
It’s 8 pm, and we started to eat! So many food! Jun Ki’s family also join us together. It’s fun. And after finish. we played card game and playstation, took pictures and gossip. As I asked we’re wearing the colourful T shirt and it’s Red, Yellow and Green… It’s Traffic Lights! How coincidence. So we took some pictures.. I love the colors.
The time is running and it’s already 11.45 pm.We’re going to the upstair to see the fireworks. It’s drizzle rain outside. We wait to see the fireworks war. When the time hit 12.oo am. HAPPY NEW YEAR 2013! The firework! Start flashing and burst above the sky. But.. too bad.. All Jun Ki’s neighbours have tall building houses. So we can’t see the best view of the Fireworks. We need to go at some corner to see it clearly and we got excited if we see the big sparkling burst!
Ahh, we’re hungry again. It’s time for the cake! Yay!! Red Velvet!! It’s big, it has 23 cm diameter and 4 layers. We took some pictures with the cake. Let’s eat it! Yummy!!
We’ll pick up Anthony at his house after he finished the party with his family. We went at 1.30 am. His house is so far away. We barely lost in the dark, haha.. Yay! now all gathered, we go back to Jun Ki’s house.. eat again, play and chit chat. We spend all night and sleep at 6 am. WOW !! It’s morning already.
We woke up at 11 am, we’re fooling and joking around, took weird pictures etc. We have to lunch, Jun Ki’s mom made Hainam rice for us, and also reheat the meal that we brought. We still tired / hangover so we just stay at Jun Ki’s house, play card and Bishi Bashi game with Red velvet Cake + Ice cream punishment for those who lose the game. Funny! Watching Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn part 1. Then Dinner at Warung Leko at PIK.
I feel like we’re dreaming.. all the time that we spent 31 Dec 2012 – 1 Jan 2013.. so fast! It’s New Year.. I’m happy.. Hopefully this year we can also share the laughter through the year. Glad to have friends.
