Disastrous Open House

23rd October 2007 was the date for our open house on the occasion of my mother’s birthday. I was given the responsibility to cook for the open house. I predicted we would have 300 guests invited to our open house and aku pun sudah menyiapakan makanan more than 300 pax. I woke up as early as i can which is 6am just to cook the food. By 12 noon everything sudah siap and semua makanan sudah di simpan di dalam food warmer. Our open house started from 12 noon till 10pm saja, luckily by 12 atu belum ada orang datang cos aku belum mandi and bersiap-siap.

By 1230pm, office workers balik keraja for lunch break so everyone headed to our house. Our house were fully packed by 1pm. The 3 dining rooms were full even our 2 living rooms were also full. I didn’t get tpo take pictures sal sibuk ku time atu. Apa inda, i have to refilled the food warmer every 5 mins. I didn’t even have the chance to sit down and mingle with our guests. People keeps on coming even tah sudah abis lunch break. By 3pm masih lagi ada orang datang. I can say that every hours orang datang saja. Makanan kan habis udah especially Nasi Briyani, my taugeh & manggo kerabu and my mom’s arabic food habis sudah by 4pm.

By 5pm I prepared 6 sets of cheese macaroni, 2 sets yang unsalted cheese macaroni by request of my mom’s guest cos durang inda berapa makan yang masin-masin ani. I even cooked Fried Macaroni. I didn’t manage to siapkan Bread and Butter pudding sal sibuk sudah, banyak lagi people came at 5pm atu. My Iced longan tea pun inda ku terbuat lagi, sibuk tah banar. Apa lagi teh tarik, punnn inda ku terbuat lagi. By 6pm naik ku ke bilik sekajap atu pun mandi and solat maghrib. Then turun ke bawah, masih ramai orang datang ani, My god. Mixed Vegetables abis udah. White rice pun sudah habis, paksa masak lagi. By 715pm my fried macaroni were gone. Semua sudah habis, even tah yang sudah bersimpan. Damn, it was like 100 packs of macaroni jua tu, laju jua habisnya. Baik jua masih ada cheese macaroni. My friends came at 730pm kali, inda ku ingat. I asked them to duduk dulu dalam living room and I’m gonna refilled the food. Like bila ku ke dapur and asked my maids apa lagi makanan ada, durang cakap semua kan habis udah. Daging rendang habis sudah, Nasi briyani masih ada sikit saja lagi cos my mom masak lagi. So i asked my friends makan apa saja yang masih ada and they even termakan my cheese macaroni yang tawar hahaha.. tarus durang complaint arah ku, nada rasa cheese macaroni mu ah.. hahahaha.. inda ku terbagitau lagi yang durang makan atu kali yang unsalted cheese macaroni, sal i assigned my maids to put the cheese macaroni when the arabic family came. Salah simpan kali my maids atu or masa the arabic family came atu coincidence datang sama my friends, oh well, I wont be bother jua, nada masa kan melayan kritikan durang.

I didn’t expected people ramai datang lagi malam atu. I thought malam ani inda berapa ramai but then, ramai tah jua. Everything is a chaos wah. Apa inda, I have to run here and there, refilled makanan, ambil piring yang sudah orang makan and antar ke dapur, bagi piring and sudu di dining room, refill minuman. Our maids inda lagi terurus wah dining room, durang sibuk menyuci and melap segala piring, sudu, and cawan apa. like atas meja makanan atu berjurit, nada orang memanyap. I was really stress that night, macam ramai urang lagi. The food almost gone sudah and its not even 9pm yet. I asked my brother to buy food di restoran ampir-ampir ani. I don’t know how to tell cana ramai orang datang di rumah kami that nite, sampai kanak-kanak duduk di lantai dapan tv and tempat orang melintas ani wah. My foster family and friends pun datang jua that nite, inda ku berapa terlayan durang jua, i was soooooo @#$% busy. It was a disastrous open house we have this year, kalah open house yang tahun-tahun lalu. Even tah my friends called me and texted me up inda dapat and inda jadi datang cos they couldn’t find a park and malas durang kan parking jauh-jauh arah luar simpang kami atu cos it was raining that night jua. I didn’t know orang datang atu parking sampai luar simpang kami ah, my friends told me macam orang kawin bah jemputan open house arah kami. by 930pm most of the foods habis sudah, there’s only laksa penang and cheese macaroni left on the table. Some guests yang datang ada yang inda makan, just duduk and makan biskut and kuih, erks even all our kuih raya habis sudah. Rano, Shafiq and his wife came jua that nite, they only makan laksa Penang. Sorry for that guys.

by 10pm baru tah ku dapat rehat sikit and makan, the whole day inda ku makan tu luan sibuk saja. It was the most disastrous open house i ever had throughout my life. Inda ku pernah face this kinda hectic and chaos before. I expected 300 guests but its like more than 300, macam 500 guests yang datang dari noon till malam.

To all my friends yang datang that night, especially my jagong’s friends, sorry inda terlayan you guys and sorry about the food yang ada atu saja. Jangan jara ah, tapi aku plang yang jara nie banarnya hahaha.. and to my foster family and friends esp niza, sally, jibz, dewi, mini and wife, arab and pojeh, sorry guys inda terlayan kamu jua. Kamu dapat sendiri meliat how busy i was kan. So hopefully you guys inda ambil hati if ku inda terlayan kamu.

Oh yeah baru ku terupdate blog ku cos i wasn’t feeling that well lapas open house ah.. hehehe.. sakit nie badan ah, i really need a massage.. any volunteer..???
