We Are One #57 International BBQ Party @ 京町屋 まくや Kyoto

After raining cats and dogs in the morning, the blue sky and the glorious sun merrily peeped out of the clouds as if they received an invitation to an ever-exciting banquet from the earth as to be impatient to come out. By the time the sun was heading home, she sent a lot of her human friends on behalf of her so she could at least watch them enjoy their five senses; to International BBQ Party at Makuya this Sunday evening!

I was too lazy to count the number of people who attended the party, but I heard 70ish hungry folks showed up and made a long queue for the BBQ. That is a huge crowd, isn’t it? A big thanks to dedicated WAO organizers and volunteers, we dug in salad, red wine stake kabobs (yum yum!!), grilled eggplants, Hong Kong style baby Castella (secret weapon by Tong!), and banana dessert. We couldn’t have moistened our throats without our special bartender, Suthai too!

While we were mingling with new friends at the patio, we heard someone dressed in happi coat strolling and calling a kick-off of picture-story show (traditional Japanese art of storytelling with pictures). It was a story about how an evil-looking hero was trying to fight off the real evil, but we’ll have to wait to know its ending until next summer! I only found out later that the storyteller is a college girl, who is eager to preserve good old cultures that have been fading away in time. Keep up the good work, mate!

Hope no one caught a cold from the evening as it was quite a bit chilly outside, but I warn you summer is waiting his chance to surprise you soon. So, are you ready for summer yet?

Today’s diversity: Peru, Mexican, Chinese, Taiwanese, Indonesian, Korean, Thai, Australian, Swedish, British, Hong Kong, Singaporean, French, Japanese. (Hope I didn’t exclude anyone here!)

The weather is really getting warmer and we can finally keep our jackets and roam around in our short sleeves and shorts. And it is time to go outside for BBQ.

We Are One is organizing an International BBQ Party at MAKUYA, a traditional Machiya turned guesthouse in Kyoto (see our New Year Party 2011). Join us to enjoy the good weather, good food and meet some great internationally minded people. There might also be a special performance prepared for you.
