Starved all day to taste this dish so that the flavour can linger till the next tasting 🙂 Have been blessed again to taste this dish by Frank NG’s family 3yrs running. Tkx to Jessie&Frank for sharing the ingredients (some not available overseas).

Second course: raw fish with spring onions, cilantro, red chillies (all finely cut) and seasoning. Some like to dip this into hot congee to cook the fish, my preference is raw. And for those who are still hungry, salted duck, Chinese sausages & pickles, abalone, cooked peanuts to compliment the congee. Bon Appetit!

Please do not ask the measurements as to how much of these 28 ingredients. The art of making good food is many trials and errors, tasting as you go along!

A story about baking told by Ajahn Brahm came to mind when all these ingredients were being typed on the keys and his words – the secret to life… everything is out of control.  And my words eat, sleep, enjoy and live to the fullest – in that order 🙂 🙂 🙂

Everyone makes mistakes. The wise are not people who never make mistakes, but those who forgive themselves and learn from their mistakes – Ajahn Brahm
