On Saturday I was invited to a Chinese Dinner Party, 4 Chinese friends from my college thought it would be nice to invite some of their non Irish friends to come and have a traditional Chinese Banquet. Oh my god their was so much food, you would think they were planing to feed an army! But you know thats what makes it traditional lol.
Can anyone spot me? look in the far left corner
Anyway alll the food was really delicious and we all had a great night :) and went home with a very full belly lol
Here is a picture of the 4 chefs
Jia Qi, Nancy, Ma Jin & Xiao Ji
Here are some pictures of the guests
The German Twins JKs (Katherina & Frederika)
Amaury, Nancy & Niamh (My boyfriend says I look a bit like Niamh what do you think?)
Finally Me & Ma Jin
Strangely even though I use chopsticks all the time when I am staying at my boyfriend's house, I still felt really uneasy and uncomfortable and clumsy using them at the dinner party. I just don't like people watching me eat lol! I even ended up droping them on the floor at one point in the night. I felt like such a newbie lol! That has never happened to me before.
One special thing at the party was using red chopsticks, which is kind of rare. I really want to get a pair of Pink chopsticks instead of the boring wooden ones I use all the time.
Ooh! I really want to go chopstick shoping now! The last time I went chopstick shoping was way back In April, when my boyfriend moved to Kilkenny, and when he got there he realised he hadn't brought any chopsticks and he had nowhere to buy them. So I went to the Chinese Supermarket to buy them and when I picked up a packet of about 10 sets of chopsticks they all fell on the ground! :O
