Updated 28 February 2007: Added Teckiee's experience.
Sorry for leaving here empty for the past one week. Life has been hectic with visitations, gatherings and loh hei (tossing yue sang or raw fsh) dinners. I hope everyone had had a great Chinese New Year celebration.
Anyway, some of the food bloggers in Kuala Lumpur were invited for a dinner gathering by Bee Yinn of Rasa Malaysia upon her whirlwind makan tour of Kuala Lumpur. You can read her "report" here on how many makan places she visited during her short stay here LOL...
Thanks to Audrey of Audrey Cooks, she managed to secure this restaurant called Makansutra in Plaza Damas for our private function filled with food, beer, wines, laughter and great conversations.
In attendance were of course Bee Yinn who flew in from US via Penang; efficient organiser Audrey; a very very sweet Teckiee of Eat First, Think Later; a couple of Team Back Street Gluttons; shy guy Jackson of Living in Food Heaven; handsome Unkaleong; famous boo_licious of Masak-Masak fame; and jovial WMW of You Get What You Give. I missed Fat Boy Bakes of Have Your Cake & Eat It by the minutes when he delivered a delicious tiramisu. Even though he did not attend but I'm sure he could feel our spirit miles away.
It is indeed an honour to be able to meet all of them in person and get to know them in that short time frame. There were promises too that more of such gatherings will be organised in time to come.
Just for your fill, some of the food we have that day...
A variety of Asian tapas and Thai Seafood Tom Yam for starters.
Mains of Homemade Tofu with Garlicky Sauce, Mango Chicken, Sutra Prawns Curry and vegetables (no pic cos too blurry).
And ended with Tiramisu courtesy of Fat Boy Bakes. Please note you can place your order over at Have Your Cake & Eat It.
Apologies if I've typed anything wrong here (I wonder if they are coherent?), I'm so sleepy now cos the place I stayed was like warzone from midnight till 3am! Yawwwnnnn...
