Our “Crazy Party”

At the end of last month, we threw a “crazy party” to continue our 20th Birthday Celebrations. Our first challenge was to wear 20 items of clothing. When planning this in the middle of winter, we had no idea that the day we decided to throw this party would be one of the hottest we have had in weeks! Safe to say we dressed up in our layers, took this photo, then swiftly removed them before we all melted!

The next challenge was to try 20 ‘weird’ foods. These ‘weird’ food ranged from peaches in mince, fermented tofu, a pickled duck egg, dried banana blossom and canned eggplants. No cultural bias here – yeah right! We had buckets at the ready but everyone managed to keep down what they ate.









Some people we very brave and managed to try everything, others let the ‘eww’ factor get the best of them. We all know that some of our ‘weird’ is someone else’s delicious and vice-versa. In saying that, everyone walked away with something they would definitely eat again!
