The legend that is Doug Peris is turning 60 and having about 60 parties to celebrate haha. Well, of course, he would, he’s a popular chap right! Back from golf and pre-Maldives, he was squeezing a brunch into his bus 60-year-old social calendar. So off we all trot to The Ritz Carlton, for what turned out to be one of the very best brunches I have ever had in Singapore. AMAZING food. AMAZING friends and family. AMAZING fun. It really could not have been better. All ages had such a wonderful afternoon at Dougy P’s 60th Birthday Brunch – ‘Sick My Duck’. And here is proof.
Why are we always late to shit? Well, one reason is that I have to hire a bloody coach every time to get the gang in. Here is a pre-filling shot whilst we wait for Strawberry Blonde to change her shoes.
And here is post-loading. We’re on our way Dougy!!!
“Is that lobster eggs benedict you are making Chef?” said I. “Ahhhhhhhhh?” said Chef.
Yes, it was though. Ding Dong!!! Or rather, Shiok La!!!
Loving my DIY tapas. Slow-braised lamb shank in curry sauce. Wagyu steak with an amazing sauce, wrapped in a crepe. Smoked duck, foie gras and candied pine nuts. Fark me sideways! Yummo!!!
The host with the most. Bless you, Dougy, and a VERY Happy 60th my friend! You much loved man you!!!
I went to basics with Jude. I found the most perfect mashed potato with black truffle. Some gorgeous crispy bread and the best butter I have very eaten in my lofe from France (really did I just say that, maird!!!) This was off-the-charts mashed spuds. OMG. Best ever in a million years. Could have covered me in it and kept on licking!!! Or brought in some hired help for those hard to reach areas, which these days are everywhere.
Individual lobsters anyone? “Don’t mind if I do!” said my wifey. How good is this?
I really am not 100% certain if Jude is enjoying his truffle mash. Hmmmmm. Just so not sure!!!
Jesus that bloody bear gets everywhere. Bell joins Dougy’s birthday brunch with Jude. Luckily the sister Anna stayed at home. Imagine Anna Bell at a party. Now that would be interesting!
Charlie and the Chocolate Factory? No, it’s Jude’s dessert which consists of NEAT sugar. Well, that just upped the afternoon gameplan a few notches. I need more champagne, and right now!!!
I made my very own cheese clock. One of each type and I kid you not I only got to half-way of what was on offer. I have NEVER seen such a variety of cheese on offer. And they were stunning. Wifey and I were working round the clock but we just ran out of time. Woo Hoo!!!
Jude falls in love with Uncle Alex, now a Commando post-NS and super-strong. Still does give any common-sense as Jude just lost the top of his head on the ceiling fan!
I am joking. Alex, you were a SAINT, my friend. You have a new BFF that is still talking about you mate! Thank you for the baby-sitting from wifey and I. “Er yeah love another two glasses of Champagne thanks!”
Awwwww so cute!!!
“When I was a young lad, I promise you it was this big!!!” said Dougy
“All the single ladies, all the single ladies”…. Errrrrrrrr really????
Now that is a lot of cloth right there!!! All the boys! Some Boys to Men. Some a lot of men. And the superb decision from Doug for colourful shirts!!!
“Ozzie Ozzie Ozzie…”
There were some gorgeous chicks mingling with the boys. We are so very lucky!
But equally gorgeous boys too! Loving the shirts. But also a little worried that I need to get up from here too. I am currently thinking about other stuff to do whilst I am down here!
My lovelies! Happy Birthday, fella. Love you Dougy P!
Jude on bended knee with a jelly ring is even offering to marry Uncle Dougy! Or is that Uncle Alex?
Well hello, there ladies!!! Whoop Whoop!!!
Jude’s thought bubble; “And now, the end is near, and as they face the final curtain…” Annie and Dougy thought bubble; “He He He more Champagne…”
And that was that. We exit rather gracefully having got it wrong re the continuation. Hey, my bad. Back home and the dog becomes the new Alex. Cool. Wifey and I going for a laydown!!!
Dougy P’s 60th Birthday Brunch – ‘Sick My Duck’ was a cracking brunch. Happy Birthday to our matey Doug. Thanks so much for the invite for family Kennett mate. It was a ball and we were so happy to be part of it. Now fuck off and enjoy the Maldives you lucky 60-year-old you. We love you mate. See you soon. 60 is the new 50 – ENJOY!!!
