Mamma Mia New Year Party @ Maukitten's, Kuala Lumpur

party time just started....

Happy New Year! Am sure everyone had a roaring time partying to usher the new year, especially from all the photos I saw in Facebook. We celebrated at our friend Maukitten's house. Her food is always amazing, hence we were looking forward to it.

Every year, it is a different theme; Japanese, Italian pasta and pizza and this year, it was all kinds of rice with satay. I liked the nasi kerabu tinged blue and mixed with tiny eggplants you usually find in Thai green curries.

the satayman provided yummy chicken and lamb satay for all of us

Next was Japanese inspired rice with hijiki seaweed and edamame beans. We also had edamame beans for snacks before the rice dishes were ready.

My favourite was the mushroom black rice. Maukitten got the black rice from Thailand itself, doubt it was coloured like the hoo-hah over locally bought Thai black rice, which they found is coloured (see
NST report here). We added fried bacon bits for extra flavour - really yummy stuff.

mushroom black rice, you could add bacon bits to this for extra flavour

Of course we had salad - loads of leafs tossed in olive oil and juicy satay - chicken and lamb. Really good stuff of course, especially eaten hot off the grill. To cool off, we had Dennis' wicked fruit daiquiris - hidden by the blended fruit but laden with vodka. For entertainment, we had the Mamma Mia movie on big screen projector with speakers even. I had fun with the movie since it was my first time watching it. We even had fireworks from nearby, when the countdown began. Overall, a great party and thanks very much to Maukitten for inviting us.

So how did all of you spend your New Year? Do share with me the wonderful parties, get togethers and celebrations you all had. Would be fun to compare notes.
