Just the other weekend, both me and my adventure, thrill seeking husband, Cumi were invited to this spectacular event, known as the My Nourishment Fete, downtown at the Royale Chulan.
If you are wondering what the My Nourishment Fete was all about, it was actually a snazzy launch for the Merdeka issue of the magazine known as My Nourishment.
The intention of this magazine is to share the passion for food. It not only covers the latest happenings in the local food scene, but it also strives to emphasize the importance of health, proper nourishment and a holistic lifestyle.
Our buddy Ryan Khang is the Chef Editor of this magazine. Well to sum things up in nutshell, this magazine, My Nourishment is his brainchild.
Here are some paparazzi shots of the event:

Bottom right: Ryan Khang of course!
The Massive Goodie Bag. Oh goodie!
Ryan Khang really knows how to throw a party. Not just wines and spirits but a fantastically well stacked cocktail bar to boot.
Cocktail paraphernalia (can you see my obsession with the cocktail bar slowly taking over? Once Fatboybakes pointed it out to me, i threw my wine glass out the window)
I took photos of the desserts first, because the massive dinner buffet spread was obscured under big silver lids.
varied colorful starters

Props to Ryan for hosting such a fantastic event. Cumi who is the fussiest, fuss-pot when it comes to food, marveled at the quality of the food and the buffet spread. Apparently Ryan got the food organized from different sources. Even the red meats were flown in for his event. As if that was not enough, the goodie bag was epic. I am talking chocolates, baking flour and even Omega3 Organic Eggs! Man, this guy really knows how to throw a party!
