Tyhoon No.3

Typhoon no. 3 has been going on the entire day! Not complaining since I was indoor most of the day. My poor girl friend from Singapore was running out & about in HK the whole day visiting clients!! All drenched and beaten by the wind & rain. She is a tough gal, still could Whatsapp me from time to time. I wouldn't say the same about my basil plant. The plant loves to be watered and but not its leaves. After out in the rain the entire day, 2 dozens leaves turned BLACK!!! Sob! Sob! Sob! So I brought it into the house. It looks quite pathetic now after I plucked away the blacken leaves :(

Life goes on despite plant woes… it's a perfect weather for pipping hot porridge! I love porridge!

Dried Skipjack Tuna and Salted Lean Pork Porridge

1 pc lean pork
2 pcs 柴魚
5 dried scallops
8 dried oysters
1 cup rice, rinsed
3 - 3.5L water

■ Rub the lean pork with lotsa sea salt and leave it for at least 2 hours.
■ Wash & soak 柴魚 for an hour. Shred with bare hands into small strips and remove any bones. Reserve the water.
■ Wash & soak dried scallops for an hour. Shred into small pieces and reserve the water.
■ Wash & pad dry the dried oysters. Blitz in a food processor into fine bits.
■ Add all ingredients and reserved water in a big pot and bring to a boil, stirring occasionally. Once boiling, simmer at low fire and stirring occasionally for 2 hours.
■ Taste and decide if you need more salt. Serve hot and enjoy!!


What supposed to be a healthy dinner soon turned into a sinful feast!


Hub brought back a large box of teochew-style braised innards!!! In that box, there were duck tongues, goose intestines, pig intestines and goose kidney. They may be gross to some people but I love them :D


  1. Lol....I used to like the last combo food, duck tongues, goose intestines, pig intestines and goose because hard to find them here and my hubby and baby are vegetarian, so now I rarely eat them...

    But only by looking at the picture, making me 流口水 here....
