Staff Lunch - Prep work

Every year, the school parents organises a lunch for all the staff, including the bus drivers, the cleaners and the academic bodies. Since Elsa has only been in this school for only slightly more than a year, I can't say more about what had been done in the previous year.
This year, though, I was asked to put my organisational skills to the test when they requested me to come up with menus and recipes for an Asian-inspired buffet lunch.

As early as 8 in the morning, I arrived at the school's kitchen to do some of the prep work

I must say, I was quite thrilled to be working in a professional kitchen... felt like being in the Masterchef, not!

I want one of this walk-in fridge!

After the initial fiasco with the satay sauce and beef rendang, everything went on smoothly without a hitch.
At exactly half past ten, the team of moms and I managed to get all the food out of the kitchen and onto the buffet tables in time for the group of hungry bus drivers.
