On seeing a beautiful red cocotte on the table
husband: Eh dear, you went shopping ah?
umami: No lah, I went to the Food Bloggers Lunch and I won the cocotte in the lucky draw. The organisers know a sponsor, BATS Singapore, who gave really good stuff, like Chroma knife and this Staub cookware. Don't know why leh, all the four prizes went to the people sitting on my side of the table.
husband: So good ah? When did this happen?
umami: This afternoon. Lucky I did not go to the
outerspaceBoon Lay office today. We started at 12.30 and didn't finish until after 3.00.
husband: Nice, but why such a long lunch?
umami: Plenty of food mah, 5 courses leh. They served champagne too, my head was still buzzing when I got back to the office. All the bloggers were really warm and friendly, we talked and laughed a lot. After lunch, Julia took us shopping at the nearby Korean supermarket. Oh yar I left my goody bag behind, lucky I was still in the neighbourhood and could return to the restaurant to collect it.
husband: goody bag some more. Wow, your lunch sounded more like dinner and dance.
umami: Yar loh. It was beyond my expectation, when I received the email invitation I thought we will all just sit down, eat and get to know one another. Which we did, but it was all so fun. The organisers joone, chubby hubby and gwenda certainly did a fantastic job organising the event. I had a grand old time.
husband: Wait, where did you eat?
umami: Mag's Wine Kitchen. The food was excellent, I especially liked their smoked duck.
Serene, a really nice reporter from Digital Life, was present as well. After I collected my cocotte, she wanted to take a picture of me but instead, I asked her to take a picture of my pot. Food bloggers wouldn't think much of this, but she must have wondered if I drank too much champagne...
psst, Chubby Hubby has all the lovely food pictures in his post.
