A few of our closed friends met up at the Langley Events Centre for a picnic. The key to the selection of a place is the water park where younger kids can enjoy in the hot summer weather.
We were not able to find a table with shades as good spots were all taken up as we arrived there short of 2PM. We managed to find a tree with some shades and set up blankets on the grass to have our picnic.
J&K family made “nasi lemak” (coconut rice with sambal). They were authentic, even to the wrapping.
J&K also made chocolate cake for dessert. They also brought “sirap bandung” which is a popular drink in Malaysia, Singapore and Brunei. It is made with evaporated milk and or condensed milk flavoured with rose syrup. It was very refreshing in a hot summer day especially served icy cold.
There is also “sambal prawn” to complement the nasi lemak.
M&J made “beef rendang” to complement the nasi lemak too. This is a dish rich in spices like ginger, galangal, turmeric, lemongrass, garlic, shallots, chilis, etc. The meat is slow cooked in the spices and coconut milk until almost all the liquid is evaporated, allowing the meat to tenderize and absorbs the flavour of the spices.
J&R brought a cold noodle dish, perfect for a hot summer day.
R also baked a butter cake for dessert.
K&W bought some samosas. The skin was crispy and flaky. It is a handy food for picnic.
The samosas were from the above restaurant and we were told that they are very popular.
K&W also made a cool drink with “aiyu” jelly and lemon juice, very refreshing.
I made a spicy chicken dish which I did not take a photo of it. For dessert, I made “Agar-agar Gula Melaka” (palm sugar jello).
It was a great picnic with a lot of food and catching up with one another.
