The pre-conference reception for next year
Though it's still a long way to go, we will have to start planning for the next pre-conference reception.

Since Randy left, i'll be the one to officially take up the role of the host (or co-host, as was the case last week), and grab the budget from PRS to sponsor the reception. Perhaps next year, it will be with added funding from his new company as well!

Anyway... each year's reception was based on a theme, ranging from hawaiian, mexican, to the cowboys this year. For the next reception, Carol, Randy's wife, and Sharon have decided on a Singaporean theme.

Thus, we'll need to think about some decors that can represent Singapore (FINE FINE FINE???!), drinks (Singapore Sling?), and most importantly, food. We cannot just focus on the good hot food, since a lot of the Eastern Europeans do not have the palette for hot food.

Sharon brought over two Singaporean recipe books, but getting all the ingredients to make the dishes will be a challenge here.

Any suggestions ???

Cater from Malay Satay Hut? At least you guys have decent Singaporean/Malaysian food near you lah...

There's always Singapore fried noodles (which you can't find in Singapore) ... you could also have a wrap your own popiah thing... One of you could be a "satay man" for the night and grill satay on the spot... or have an instant sarabat stall to "pull" tea or ermmm... mix cocktails?

Oh yes... ingredients wise, unless you're looking for buah keluak, you should be able to find most of the stuff you need for asian/singaporean cooking at Uwajimaya or Ranch or even Chinatown... I don't know about Chinatown coz I've never gone grocery shopping in Seattle's Chinatown before.
