One day after the closing date, I received an email informing me that I’ve been selected to cover the Cooking Workshop! I was also allowed to bring three friends along! I was both elated and worried. I was worried if my spouse will let me go since this weekend is critical for revision. However, my worries were unfounded. In fact, I managed to persuade him to go with me too! I gave the excuse that it'll be a great Mother's Day present for me too!
One of the catch to attend the workshop for me is also the host, Michelle Chong. My children love to see her in “The Noose”. They are a great fan of her, and so are we! For me, it’s both the cooking workshop and meeting the hosts that I’m looking forward to!
On the day itself, we drove to the Polling Centre to cast our votes before going to pick up my niece. I have invited my niece and my sister to tag along. When we reached Cookyn, Inc., it was still early, but all the tables, except one, were already filled with participants. Gradually, more participants streamed in. The owner, Mervyn, was busy with some preparations.
After 2pm, Vivian and Michelle appeared. Both of them looked as good as in the show! In fact, they looked more natural and gorgeous in real person! They were very spontaneous. They started chatting with the participants, and asking us about our views of “Ladies’ Nite”. We started warming up. After a few more chats, they started the demonstration proper.
The workshop ended with a "Questions and Answers" session where more goodies were given out. I was lucky to be able to answer a question and got myself a Channel U goodie bag!
Cooking workshop sponsored by Channel U Ladies' Nite.
