Happy Birthday Marcus

It was my brother’s birthday on 6 June. He suggested to have a small BBQ party and invited his ex-schoolmates to come over to our house. However we celebrated it one day earlier, which was on Saturday. Mom prepared the food, marinated the chicken and pork. We did help mom over the minor stuff of course. The food prepared for BBQ are chicken wings, chicken satay, pork ribs, prawns, vege balls, sausages. The other sidelines are fried mee suah, coleslaw, watermelon.

Poon Choi for dinner

Mom prepared “Poon Choi” or 盆菜 for dinner today. She prepared many types of different dishes to be laid on many layers in a big pot. Poon Choi is special in that it is composed of many layers of different ingredients. It is also eaten layer by layer instead of “stirring everything up”.

Mom’s poon choi consist of pork ribs, sea cucumber, pacific clams, mushrooms, meat balls, roast pork, smoked chicken, cabbage, prawns, fried potato & radish. All are cook separately before laying them layer by layer into the pot.

Mom arranged them all into 4 layers. Here are the photos showing all of it.

Was surprised that mummy made pizza for dinner today….

Though it wasn’t the perfect pizza, cause she replaced mozzarella cheese with normal cheese & replaced the tomato puree to an ordinary tomato sauce but with the stress that I’m receiving from work…its does meant a PerFecT one to me. My work is really give me lotsa stress lately. I certainly agreed that eating may minimize your stress. But bear in mind; you can’t repeat that everyday..its very unhealthy.
