Three Women And A Man.

Three women are coming to my apartment for lunch this weekend. I am no eunuch so I might as well confess that the very idea of three women coming for lunch is enough to make me all excited inside.

I've got the menu planned out. It will be a perfect lunch date. Everyone will have a good time. To keep it interesting I've even figured out some interesting topics for us to talk about at least for hours on end. I've compiled a list of interesting jokes to keep the afternoon as lively as possible. At the moment I am seriously thinking of learning up a few acrobatic tricks so I can keep them amused even more. Maybe later in the day I'll Google some magic tricks that I can learn up and practise so I can impress them with my skills. I know this will work like a charm among the women. They'll go 'Ohhh you're so clever, do that again.' And I'll do the trick all over again feeling like a circus monkey.

For starters we'll have some rojak, and spring rolls. I think I'll cook tomyam soup. We can have this with udon mee. And some rice. I'll steam a medium-sized fish with ginger, serai, garlic, chili, coriander leave, mint, and some herbs. This will go very well with sayur campur with huge cubes of beancurd and a generous sprinkle of ikan masin. I can lace this with egg. For dessert we'll have sagu with gula Melaka. I need to make sure this is served in nice cute bowls so the colour of the gula Melaka and santan will look very interesting.

I've got it all figured out.

The problem is I need to go pick them up, feed them and then send them back, after my magic trick performance, that is. Oh well, it's worth doing it for Aunt Su and her friends, Aunty Koh and Aunty Chea.

I told you I've got three women coming for lunch at the apartment this weekend. I am excited at the thought of cooking for them and hearing them laugh and puji-puji me with their 'Ooh manyak pandai, manyak baik, apa pasal beloom kawiiiin?'

(Maybe I'm a eunuch afterall.)
