Happy Steamboat Night

We had a steamboat gathering at our house.

A gathering with Amanda's family on 8.3.2009.

Amanda's cousin also joined our gathering.

We had a great time of eating loads of food at 8.30p.m.
We made a cheese cake for Amanda this afternoon.

We made it once as a test yesterday.

Cheesecake is our favorite dessert. Both of you had a small slice with breakfast this morning.
We really hope Amanda also like it.

Combine crumbs and butter. Press into the bottom and 2 inches up the sides of a 10-inch spring form pan.

In a mixing bowl, beat cream cheese until smooth.

Let cool before covering with plastic wrap and refrigerating. This cheesecake tastes good after being refrigerated for hours.

Mom and Kakak Siti prepared a pot of soup for steamboat.

Amanda's and her family reached our house in the evening. We met up with Amanda lovely cousin, Jeremy and Emily. They are friendly.

Children enjoy thie play time.

We are steamboat lovers. Amanda's mother prepared a lot of foods and things which considered. She is a well-prepared woman. She highly recommended us cheese flavour fishball. It was our first try. Her specially prepared sambal was heavenly nice. Appreciation for her effort.

After filled up the stomachs, the children had their fun time. Amanda and Lydia began to string beads slowly onto the piece of string. They made bracelets and rings.

Emily and Priscilla played with Barbie dolls while Jeremy enjoyed his legos.
Due to that too-full feeling, we were having Chinese tea together. Dad and mom like the beauty of Chinese Yixing Teapots and the finer arts of tea drinking. We had pleasant times together.

The gathering ended up in the middle of the night. Girls, time to say goodbye. We look forward
to seeing Amanda's family, Jeremy and Emily at the next gathering.
