Of Roast Pork and Lemak Chili Padi

Mum came back from the market, and telling me that the market got no more roast pork as we need it for Ching Ming, and mum ask “you know how to make mou?” I was like.. stunned while still FB-ing, I said “wait, I think I got a blogger did that” (see, I unintentionally telling her the benefit of blog)

So, I hop over to Elaine’s and found this recipe. I remembered that she did a post like this, and I go straight to hers to look into the details.

Take mum to the market, she bought the pork belly, and brought back for marinating. Just follow what Elaine wrote, and voila, when the clock strike 12 (midnight) the pork belly turned Cinderella looks like this..

When we were back in Seremban, my aunt told me that she dreamt that my ‘dad’ visited her with some lemak chili padi ingredient, and think he wanted to eat that. Mind you, my dad already back to God for few years already. OK la, since she already open her mouth, I better make sure I do this.. or else, my dad will come look for me? *daddy, if you come, please give me 4D ah*

On Monday, I cooked the Ikan Tenggiri Lemak Chili Padi for my ‘dad’ as we decided to visit his grave. *according to the custom law, we have to pray all the elders before we can pray my dad* I served him the ‘dream’ food..

DSCN6282 DSCN6281I was talking to my cousin earlier on, that since our ancestors passed on for more than 20 years, do they really able to receive those ‘burned’ goods we gave but the food we served at least we can EAT!
