Last Saturday a few floggers and I met up at Max! with hopes of appeasing our ferocious appetites. Judging from the amount of high tech DSLRs on the table, you'd be forgiven for thinking we were media covering an event at Max!. I felt a little out of place with only my W800i in hand. It was quite dim so I had to photoshop some of the pictures. I added a nice glow to them and they now look like wedding photos! Poor Max was all alone in the kitchen that night and had to tend to 14 hungry floggers as well as his other customers. They gave us lots of bread and his wonderfully syrupy balsamic vinegar in oil to keep us quiet. It was nice to see everyone again and have a proper chat. I was sitting right in the middle so I could pick up conversations from either side of the table. On my left, I heard bits of politics, Eurasian food and nipples! On my right, the person whose nipple I was suddenly staring at as Nigel's phone was waved infront of me. Ah, it was just ever so slightly awkward as I now know Joe much more intimately. The conversation was a lot cleaner on my right with talks of food, cameras and more cameras.
I ordered portobello mushroom salad to start. It was quite nice but a tad oily. Hunky's yabbies (pictured above) with avocado were very tasty, wished I had ordered that instead. There was quite a lot of crazy photo taking whenever a dish arrived. It was like paparazzi for food. I think it really added to the fun atmosphere that night. Splashie Boy and I were lighting directors for the compact camera floggers. For my main course, I ordered tuna steak. As much as I would've loved to order the wagyu cheek (especially after seeing Lyrical Lemongrass eat hers in utter bliss), I think it would've been too much after three weeks of being vegan. The tuna steak was a little over done. I had asked for rare but Max recommended medium. It was definitely more like well done. I think I also couldn't enjoy it because halfway my stomach started to feel really heavy. I actually skipped dessert! Shocking!

We ended the night with alcoholic shots supplied by Max (thanks Max!). It was a fun night and I can't wait to meet up with this crazy bunch again. Check out the others blogs: wmw, Jason & Soo Yin
