BBQ By The Pool

26 October 2013

I’ve been waited for this BBQ gathering for very long time. And it’s finally here!

It had been really long since the few of us met up and have fun for a day.

I remember the last time when we Gossip Club had our BBQ session, quite long ago, probably even a year or so ago, it was really fun! I really enjoy hanging with these bunch of people once in a while.

Let’s talk about the BBQ this time. I must really applaud Yong Kang. It was him who organised everything, yes, almost everything by himself. The food, the utensils, the charcoal and even the venue (Yes, the BBQ is held at the BBQ pit within his condo), all settle by him.  He swear he is really a great planner. (Uh-huh, so that we are able to go there and just help cook the stuff and eat them.) Haha!

In the afternoon, Tan Rong, Wei Hao and Junwei met at Yio Chu Kang MRT Station and wait for Yong Kang and his dad to fetch us to his condo apartment. We’ve 4 guys trying to squeeze into the back of the car. That’s really suffocating.

When we reached there, Tan Rong and Weihao decided to go for a swim. Junwei and I decided to follow them down to the pool, with a packet of chips.

When we reached the pool, I was really amazed of how beautiful the view of the entire place from the pool. Marvelous view!

Really spectacular, doesn’t it?
So while the two are swimming, me and Junwei were eating chips by the pool and enjoyed the pool water hitting our legs. And I decided to take a selfie with such a nice backdrop, apparently my angle wasn’t that good that I’ve basically blocked almost the entire background. :’D

Not long after, we went back to Yong Kang’s unit before going to the BBQ pit to prepare the fire!

And I must mention the view again!!!
Yes, that’s the view from our BBQ pit. It’s like I’ve went to another world, the world of paradise. OMG. I must have this in my dream house! o/
We managed to get the charcoal burning and cooked the food before Stefanie arrived. And moment before she arrived, we ran out of charcoal, so I dragged Junwei along with me to get them. So, basically, I didn’t see her arriving. Heh.
We returned shortly (but in fact, not really shortly).
We started to cook more food, eat more food and talk more crap. While I borrowed Stef’s DSLR to take some random shots.
Well, that’s me. Definitely not taken by me. (Image: Stef’s FB)

And towards the end of the BBQ session, while we were all trying to BBQ our marshmallows, Yong Kang disappeared suddenly. And not long later, I heard a little boy saying “Happy Birthday to you”. 
Everyone turned around.
Yong Kang was holding a cake.
And I was like, “Whose birthday is it today? Cannot be Weihao’s, cannot be Junwei’s, definitely not Stef’s. Tan Rong’s?!”
Everyone looked at me and started singing the birthday song. Of course I sang along too. Until my name was mentioned. Eh… Wait… What?
Everyone looked at me again and said:
OMG! They remembered! SHOOOO SWEEEEET EH!!!
I swear I was really stunned. 
My third birthday celebration and 5th cake in 5 days.
Here’s a picture of the cake. It’s really very nice (I mean it looks and taste equally great!) Chocolate, me favourite!

I must really treasure all the friends that I have made. It’s good to really meet so many different cliques of very thoughtful friends. Really must treasure them, because they don’t owe you anything, not even a birthday celebration but yet they organised birthday celebrations for me. Really really really very nice and thoughtful.
Before we left, we took some group photos, here’s one:
And here’s a photo I owe Stef, since it had been long since we last took a photo together:
The last thing I could remember from this was Stef complaining and bitching about the very late arrival of the taxi. 😛
