Anessa's BBQ



The weather this weekend was EXCELLENT for anything and everything. I received a last minute invite to a BBQ at Ness's house. I know her through Ray, my former house mate. She has a really chirpy personality. Very nice person. Since it was also a nice weekend, I agreed to go to the BBQ. I know that it's a Christian do, and I have no problems with that. I am a Malaysian. I just found out that Ray is from the True Jesus Church. He never did want to tell me which church he was from.

I had a nice time there. The people were all very friendly. I met a lot of Malaysians there. They were mostly from Sandakan, Sabah and they were mostly related to Ness (her mum's from there). They kept asking me if I spoke Hakka. Unfortunately, I'm not a Hakka Yin. This visibly disappointed some of them. I can understand it enough to make out most of John's speech though. This is the result of having lived in a Hakka speaking town with friends who speak it.

It is nice meeting new people. Like Ray says, I'm a social creature. I don't know where he got that impression, but I guess I am. Although I don't personally consider myself a very people person, I do get along with most people. I guess that being chatty helps. People are interesting. Anyway, I took some nice photos. Thought that I'd stick them up here so that others can view them.
