Christmas' Island Fiesta
"It's a wonderful time of the year"... After a lot of alcohol and chat, we opted to do this year's Christmas Dinner at Ceningan Resort.. More details will come soon, however he's one format that was suggested:
DINNER MENU: We (as in Rob & the Xmas Elves + some help from Prashanti) will cook a lovely buffet style feast with roast beasts, glazed ham, pig in a blanket, meatballs, maple roots + veggies, mash potatoes, a tasty stuffing, tomato onion salad, creamy macaroni salad, cranberry sauce, cheese platter & cold cuts, and more... Followed by something sweet for desert!
DINNE PRICE: Price TBD, I'm still pricing out the cost and depending on how many people are coming. (Something around 500,000Rp per person, what do you guys think?)
BOOZE: We were thinking people could bring booze over and we do a self serving "open bar" in a corner. **if you want drinks such as Bloody Caesar or Mango & Basil Mojito etc from our bar, then you pay... I will make a large serving of egg nog (everyone would get a solid cup, maybe even two)
SECRET SANTA - We talked about 2 options:
1) Blind Santa (we all bring a wrapped gift price range 100,000Rp) we put the gifts in a pill, put names in a hat, draw names out and pick gift in order...
2) takes more time (We sign up, we then pick name ahead of time and then have to buy a specific gift (value 100k) for that person)
LIVE MUSIC - I Think Darren offered to "play the fool" that night with some inappropriate lyrics while stoking his ukulele.
Of course there will be some xmas decorations, music, a special screening of the Grinch that stole Christmas (The original 60s cartoon, not that awful movie with what's his name...) and other siliness..
We are open to your suggestions and input..
