A Barbecue Gone Wrong

Just a few days ago, my hostel mates and I had an barbecue party to mark the end of our exam period. The plans and agreement was made quite some time ago but yeah, plans are just all talks and until there's a real event, it is pretty much nothing at all.

This is not the first time such similar plans had been made, but for once, the plan made actually materialized. So it is something quite new to me and my mates as we embark on a new Organizing hostel BBQ experience.

Everything went pretty fine from the planning stage all the way till the execution stages, and I could feel that from the way things is unfolding, this is somewhat meant to be our day. Not even the predicted rain could sour our day.

The rain caused us change our plan.. which includes bring tables across some fence to some kid's sand box.

Things started off pretty well in the late evening, and by 8.30 pm our guest are mostly already here. The self proclaim fire pro *ahem* Rahul * cough ahem* even claimed that he can even start a fire without any fire starters other than just leaf..

I can even start a fire without any fire starter other than just leaf
Or so he say la.


Around the same time , my intelligence from across the land have been reporting heavy rains in the North and Central Singapore. Being in the West side, I chosed not to believe too much into the reality they are trying to tell me. Later on that night it actually rained, but even the rain couldn't deter us from executing such a event.

Just as you would so rightly feel the building of positive momentum as we had back then, the reality slowly started to creep in. By 10pm, they are still no reliable fire source established despite all our efforts plus the true expertise of some FirePro fella * ahem ahem* Rahul Rahul.

Still being optimistic as ever, we kept on pushing and pushing believing that it just another half and hour, half an hour is just all that we need to proceed with the barbecue of foods.

YES BARBECUE OF FOOD. It is very easy to forget that our primary goal is to cook the food and not just light the fire which we are clearly taking too long to do already.

They demoted my potentially GODLY fireplace into some Girly Marshmallow fireplace

Fast forward another two hours and finally we have made some slightest of progress. After all that we've thrown in an attempt to start a fire, we finally produced 3 mini fireplaces, each able to barbecue a pair of chicken wings or so at any one given moment and die out anytime too.

More marshmellowsss and no chicken

When we finally wrapped it up at 3am , the amount of untouched chicken wings is the real evidence of how wrong the plan went. The leftover chickens could easily mount up to 70% and it all went back home with us, outside our stomach and in our hands.

So, with chicken wings in abundance happily resting in peace in the fridge, there's not much things left we can possibly do with it..

.. other than cook it again the following day. So after a day filled with rest and nothingness, part of the original crew came back for round two.

To keep a long story short, instead of showing our expertise on the physical barbecue pit method or the extreme lack of it, we resorted to Technology™. Let me introduce to you, the OVEN TOASTER YEAH

The Oven 3000- A Glimpse of the Future

After just half an hour of embarrassing VERY THE KURANG MAN style, we accomplished what we took 5 hours to 'almost' accomplish the day before, with spectacular results.

Yeah, yeah, resting in peace finally, the chicken wrapped in golden honey. It doesn't get sweeter than this.

well as ones that would have in a wrong way damaged my entire career if I had not encountered your blog.

Yet another issue is video games are typically serious naturally with the primary focus
on learning rather than entertainment. Although, it comes with an entertainment element to keep children engaged, every game is generally designed
to work with a specific set of skills or course, such as instructional math or scientific research.
Thanks for your publication.

work perfectly with me personally after some time. Somewhere throughout
the paragraphs you were able to make me a believer

I've been surfing online more than three hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours. It�s pretty worth enough for me. In my opinion, if all site owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the net will be a lot more useful than ever before.
