Buzz!ng with Le Couple Toy

About a month and a half ago, we participated in Kordell’s walkathon in our little effort of adding more fitness into our social outings besides clubbing and drinking. Yes, this was done with our Subang/USJ Club and ALL our social outings involve drinking one way or another.

Venue for walkathon was at Taman Jaya in PJ. Organised by Kordell together with the Arthritis Foundation. It was a team event, each team consisting of 4 members.

Knowing the competitive streak that we have, we made the walkathon into a competition between our two teams. Our celebrity, The National Hockey Player, even had T-Shirts made for both teams. We called ourselves The Red team and The White team. Loser team had to belanja breakfast.

Needless to say, White team WON, especially since we have the national hockey player on our team. Although Red team didn’t do so bad themselves.

Our team leader, The National Hockey Player, even had a trophy made for the winning team! Now this is dedication to the club.

Now I can go back to writing about the fantastic SteamBoat gathering organised by VickLyn in their house. Let me start off with a new concoction proposed by Vick, whisky with lime. A very interesting combination where the lime actually takes away the harshness of the whisky. So saying that, this is only recommended only for lesser whisky. Which means we committed sacrilege using the Gold Label.

And there was a plan to emulate the sauces served with the SteamBoat Set in Eric’s Deli. We managed to get most of the sauces and thanks to Lyn, it looked pretty similar.

Due to the limitations of Giant Hypermarket in USJ, we didn’t get that many choices for our ingredients. But it is not the ingredients but the soup that counts! And we had an over-the-top chicken soup as base although one member did complained thinking there was TomYam soup too. Still we placated him with some good chilli sauce.

 For desserts, we had heavily laced Vodka Jelly by ToyGirl and an alcohol-less Tiramisu by Lyn.

 ToyGirl always wanted to make her own margarita so Brand & Neel were responsible for bringing the Triple Sec. Just for comparison, this is the most commonly used ratio for margaritas:

  • 50% Tequila
  • 29% Triple Sec
  • 21% Fresh Lime/Lemon Juice

ToyGirl’s Ratio:

  • 65% Tequila
  • 20% Triple Sec
  • 15% Fresh Lime

Needless to say, ToyGirl’s mix was encouraged.

And we topped the night off with Chocolates from Europe and a bottle of bubbly. Definitely will be attending more KettleBell classes.
