master chef!

last night, a few of us went to a thai cooking class, where we learned to make pad thai, prawn soup, green curry, sticky-rice, etc.
.
our teacher's name was "meow," and she was completely hilarious.
.
she taught us how to "make big flame" in a wok. below, elsa makes "big flame."
.
whenever someone made a cooking mistake, like putting fish sauce on your cashews instead of your rice-noodles, meow would give you a look and say "you the weak link."
.
we went about our cooking and eating until 10 pm, and it seemed as if we were laughing the whole time. we made a lot of noise.
.
linda (during a particularly noisy moment): "meow, your neighbors must hate you."
.
meow: "no. my neighbors move."

.

in regard to follow-up instruction, meow related this gem:.

meow: "you go home, you practice thai cooking. you make people happy." "if you need anything, you call me."
.
"if you burn, no call me, please."
meow also wrote our names (in thai) on our nametags, and gave each of us a certificate, designating the awarded title of "master chef."
