The highly anticipated E Block supper was back on Wednesday night with a twist! Instead of the usual shouts of “Supper!”, the block committee members went around announcing “Breakfast”!
There is no better way to start the semester than Yakun style breakfast (or supper?) with the company of friends. The spread consisted of age-old breakfast favourites: Milo, garlic bread, kaya spread and half boiled eggs.
However, Charmaine, the block head, decided to try a new recipe for the night and here you have it, the one and only quarter boiled egg. While she excitedly exclaimed that this new creation of hers was downright yummy, many decided not to be too adventurous.
Nevertheless, the hungry blockers did not hesitate to begin their own experiments, coming up with novel combinations of their own. Many new recipes were created that would put even Yakun to shame. For example, a highly popular concoction of the night was “Milo bread” – basically heaps of your favourite Milo powder on a slice of soft bread.
Still, the ultimate concoction of the night was Milo drink with raw eggs added. When stirred, fresh yolk can be seen oozing out, turning the usually brownish Milo into a rather exotic drink that this writer would classify as Fear Factor material.
The blockers also welcomed new additions to the E Block family that night. Some of them are Keviians returning from their student exchange programme. Many, however, are first time hall dwellers and new to the KE supper experience. When asked to give comments about the food, Niels, a student from New Zealand said he couldn’t help but notice the quarter boiled eggs. After a long thought, he replied “The eggs are rather interesting,” with a smile. Geraldine, another E blocker, found the experience a warm and unique one. Breakfast at night was truly a new concept to many.
Apart from the unusual gastronomic experiments, the rest of the supper was truly mouth watering. It gave E blockers some much needed nourishment to start the semester on a good note. As a testimony to how good the food was, the picture below describes more than a thousand words can.
Have a good term ahead everyone!!!
