Bucket List: Celebrating Local Friendships



We missed you this evening at our get-together with the Chin family. With an aura of celebrating relationships felt throughout the afternoon, I dearly missed you.

I was invited to share some baking techniques with Sister Cai and her husband to give them time together and a shared pursuit. I so enjoyed teaching and guiding them through the process of making chocolate cupcakes.

After a successful turnout, we topped the freshly baked cake with dollops of whipped cream. You know I love it when a sweet treat is thrown together in a completely natural way.


What started out as a cupcake-baking lesson turned into a Chinese cookout with our Uncle and Auntie Cai. We grilled meats of all shapes and sizes: lamb, shrimp, and fish skewers, grilled beef steak, and even a delicious rotisserie chicken in the oven!



We made a huge dent in my bucket list today. What fun.

  1. It was so awesome to get to share life with our Malaysian and Chinese friends before we headed back to the US.. Going to miss this… and 其实我喜欢跟他们将中文~

  2. Maddie! We all really missed you — especially Mr. Chin who was asking ”美丽在那里?“ all evening ~
