So when a bunch of friends decided to squeeze some time off their busy schedules and meet up...
What do they usually do?
Chill at a cafe? Lunch at a fancy restaurant? Or grab a movie at the nearest mall?
NOT FOR US!
We go back to the basics: man, nature, AND burger
First off, deciding to meet at 10pm at a Friday night is already as crazy as it sounds
But, to insist on having a nice warm BBQ session right after a rain?
You know nothing's gonna stop us!
So here we are at our fav spot
Underneath Penang Bridge
A nice view to look at while we prepare our fire...
Which was sipek challenging cause of the rain
Finding tree branches and leaves are the easy part
Lighting em up to a decent fire took us about 1 hour
So it's 1 hour of non stop fanning, blowing onto almost-dead flames and throwing in small branches
But the guys did manage to ignite the whole BBQ set with only 1 火种 and a few charcoals
As fo me... Well, while I was waiting for the others to arrive, I was busy taking selfies
Until I tripped and sprained my ankle...
Which confined me to sitting on a tiny rock afterwards for the whole night
Readying the fire
Baby you're a firework...
You just gotto ignite, the light...
And let, it shine!
Burger in the making
Look at em go
Mr.Tommy - chicken tosser
Mr.Sheng - fire controller
Ms.Wendy - Rock sitter / Selfie taker
United, as one!
Pepo, these are the rare instances where you can see
womenfolk sitting around doing nothing, while the guys do all the work.
A toast, to you both!
Then 3 random strangers decided to come join our fire
Yes, they are totally random :D
How to prepare a mouth watering burger?
(hidden episode from how-to basics)
#1 - Ready the ingredients
#2 - Burn the buns
#3 - Slap waaaay too much mayo on your bun
#4 - Put in cheese that doesnt look like cheese
#5 - Smash in readied chicken breast
#6 - Regret your decision and try to save it by slapping black pepper sauce
#7 - Enjoy it anyways!
Le first burger taster

Reminds us of... Stuff.
Fire burning our burnt bun
Everyone enjoyed their burger
Nice chilling and catching up with everyone :)
All in all, an awesome experience!
Even tho I got a bit tipsy towards the end, but I self-declare this gathering...
I had an awesome time hanging out with you guys
Hopefully, there will be another one soon!
