Tags: food, kuwai, nasi kerabu
Food has been the main theme in this house lately.
Over the weekend, we had nasi kerabu and kuwai. As expected, my brothers the
nose-pickers picky eaters did not favour the idea of having to digest a fungal -like dish (due to its blue colour). However, it was of great relief when they were willing to try the kuwai.
Kuwai (Japanese term), also known as Chinese potato (chi gu)/swamp potato/ Chinese arrowhead roots is a type of tuberous seasonal vegetable. You eat it by first peeling of the outer skin, cutting it into thin slices and fry it like you’d fry the keropok ikan. The taste? Fantastically sweet. It’s a good time to look for it now since CNY is just around the corner. Plus, it might sold out once CNY is over. 😉
There was also an issue about ‘taking food’.
I’ve always thought that guys will arrive at a point in their life when they are very conscious about how they look. Unlike women who are like that every day, every year, most of the time.. 😛 Males have two peak times, I suppose. The 1st during youth and the 2nd at the age of ‘life begins at 40’. Eg : Like Father and his hair. Anyway, I’ll leave the latter part alone and focus on the earlier one.
Recently, I noticed that Brody (Bro D, 16 years old, eligible bachelor) have been increasing his food intake and doing weights/sit-ups vigorously. I think he’s on a mission to ‘make his T-shirt nampak full’. That was exactly what one of my male teachers used to say about boys wanting to have dada bidang, tangan sasa, punggung kental, wajah ganteng.. those sort of thing. Back to Brody, he’s been requesting to have cereal drinks for breakfast, fresh milk to drink, boiled eggs, high carb food etc. And when I came back from hospital this evening, I caught him doing sit-ups secretly outside the house. He wouldnt let me stay and watch. Muahahaha~~Takper..
Sis N – unsuccessful with her diet attempt.
Bro M – ayoooo.. eat jelah .. you’re growing up!!
As for myself, well.. Mother has been grenading me with ‘Bebel Bombs’ about how little food I eat. Maa.. when I’m tired, I memang tak makan banyak. I just drink water.
