This morning we gathered for Putra Terrace potluck breakfast and we had many yummy dishes to choose from. I've met some new faces that I've never seen before (of course Mak knows who they are). Most of my neighbors know my parents and some of them didn't event know that I'm exist hehe.
Many of us are excited when there is potluck. I personally love potluck parties mainly for the bonding and food. Have you ever wonder what is the origin of the word 'potluck'? According to wiki, a potluck is a gathering of people where each person or group of people contributes a dish of food to be shared among the group.
As English words go, “potluck” is actually pretty straightforward. It’s simply a combination of “pot,” in the sense of “cooking pot,” and “luck,” in the standard sense of “chance or fortune.” When “potluck” first came into use in English in the late 16th century, it carried the sense of “whatever is available to eat” (i.e., already cooked in the pot), specifically in the context of a guest invited to dine on the spur of the moment, without special preparations having been made. Early on, the form “to take potluck” became popular (“I accepted Mr Leeke’s invitation to take pot-luck with him and returned to Page’s in the evening,” 1810), a usage still heard today. By the 20th century, “to take potluck” had acquired a more general sense of “to take what comes” or “to take one’s chances” in nearly any context (“Don’t be content to take ‘pot-luck’ on the future,” 1943).
Right here in our office, at least once a year we had potlucks. Usually these potlucks were not organized by the company and normally the committees are volunteers among the staffs.I have some entries about potlucks parties with the office mates.
