La Rentrée Luncheon at Zen Garden

September 30 marked our first entrée kick-off luncheon at Zen Garden was a real success with a good number of members in attendance.  In the privacy of the function room with the Indian summer temperature outdoors, we recanted summer-holiday stories and shared a delicious family-style lunch.  We were happy to see old friends and welcome five new members who came to join us.  Bienvenue to Claire, Sanwan, Sophie, Vivian and Fion!

Thank you all for coming despite the hectic schedule during the back-to-school month of September!

Chairwoman Grace Wong Foillet welcomes Claire to the lunch!

Do Asians really smile when they eat? 🙂

Everyone say... "Noodles!"

Spring Potluck + A View from the Top

Gray skies and dusty winds did little to deter the 21 ladies who came to share their favorite recipes with no less than the Eiffel Tower as their stunning backdrop at the recent potluck at Chairman Grace’s gorgeous rooftop terrace.  Members were greeted with a champagne toast and soon, the serving table started to resemble a buffet spread at a hotel:  the international mix of dishes which accentuated heavily on the Asian cuisine was impressive!  Members had a chance to mingle with old friends as well as new ones — and it was comforting to see ladies exchanging numbers to keep in touch during the summer!

At the potluck, we welcomed two newcomers — Angelina (French-Chinese) and Song (Korean) to our group.

The dessert portion of the potluck eventually made its way to Grace’s indoor apartment as spring showers began.  Everyone was enjoying the get-together so much that ladies ended up staying until 4PM!  Truly a great gathering — and another memorable gathering to welcome the Summer!

Thank you to Grace once again for sharing her beautiful home with us.
