Last night, I embarked on a first time culinary experience at I Chi Ban Teppen-Yaki with the Chums on a long awaited girly meet-up (+R because in typical boy style; food is involved) and part celebratory dinner for my birthday next monday. I am so spoilt.

Needless to say, I have to admit that having food hurled at me was a very ahhh 'interesting' albeit unforgettable experience. But FUN! Especially seeing the looks on my dear friends' faces as raw eggs were flung at them.

Doing flashy tricks with fire.

Our cook/chef/entertainer.

Waiting for food to be served.

Raw eggs, lined up and ready to be thrown. 
Not kidding when I say they were cracked all over the place, including on WW's dress.

Doing tricks with utensils while cooking.

 "Please don't hurt me!"
Pretty sure all our faces looked like that actually. 

I would have taken more photos of everyone attempting to catch food with their mouths, bowls and hands (most of the time failing) but I was too busy being kind of scared shitless. Didn't really matter though, as it culminated in having pellets of egg fired at me in quick succession (gave up and ended up with egg up my shorts) and a bowl of rice hurtled at me...without the bowl (clearly futile, half of it ended up on the floor and my upper body). 'Special treatment' apparently.

Despite all the food that didn't end up in the right place, we were super full by the end of it. So we ate some ice-cream and cake.

Cutest smiley cake! 

We then did some mandatory screeching (karaoke) to Katy Perry and irrelevant asian music videos. After that, we sat around inside World Square and talked about everyone's different plans for the summer, involving a lot of jetsetting, working, lounging on a beach in Fiji (jealous) and catching up with family. So it was unbelievably nice to see everyone before they all dispersed into their busy lives for the next couple of months.

Beautiful friends. (ph. by R)

 I went home in an exhausted-happy state laden with gifts, the smell of BBQ-ed meat in my hair and the realisation that I got unbelievably lucky in befriending these amazing girls; can't believe I've known most of them since the early days of high school (and even earlier!). Lucky, I tell you.
