Of BBQ and Turkish Delights
This is the funniest and saddest bbq I had ever attended. Funniest because the coals just simply would not burn and saddest because the coals just simply would not BURN!! It was so embarrassing to see other groups that came after us already eating their delicious bbq-ed meat while we were still trying our damnest to get the fire going! We bought three types of fire starters, all of which did work (they were fire starters after all and the fires did start) but the the charcoals just would not burn!
"Eh, Ton, can work ah this time?"
We ended up grilling the meat over the fire (while the fire starters were still burning). We were there at Kamogawa river around 5 pm and we were still there trying to get the fire going until 7pm! We were a sad bunch. Another group of people that came at the same time as us were already happily eating and by 7, some of them were leaving, while we have not even eaten yet!

In the end, after the fire died for the last time, we packed up the uncooked meat and vegies and headed back to Ton's apartment to cook our dinner. We did had a little bit of grilled meat with satay sauce which was delicious. Thank you Ton and Mai! And back at the apartment, we had our full dinner!
I will not be updating my blog since I will be off to Turkey until the 17th of September. So will see you guys when I get back.
To Ton, Mai, Gan, Puay, Patrick, Shin and Chan....we will try again next time!
