In my next life, if I ever get reincarnated in a non-human form (thanks to my impressive repertoire of committed sins), I wish to return as a man's best friend. Like Pea or Pumpkin. Ok, I prefer Pumpkin because he has a longer tongue. Well, Pea gets it up rather well too!
Ok, that is sooooo besides the point. Imagine being blessed with a loving couple. And roaming about a garden full of lovely sights such as
Or spending the afternoons in the living room, lying on the floor and chillin' as his Jie Jie fills the room with the tranquilizing sounds of the guzheng.
And the gorgeous lunches she prepares.
Like this one which took place a few weeks back. With a menu consisted of the infamous Roasted Pork Belly, Black Vinegar Pig Trotters, Yong Tou Foo, Curry Chicken, Stir-Fried Vegetables, Steamed Tou Foo With Ginger & Preserved Vegetables and a Roasted Duck courtesy of Joe, it was very much complete.
As I am now speaking in the context of a man's best friend, I can only wish for pieces of delicacies the guests carelessly drop on the floor for a taste. No chance, as food bloggers are very much meticulous eaters. The fact is, the pork belly screamed deliciousness with its crunchy skin, the sweet/sour trotters were soft (with all those collagen content) and the curry chicken was spicy with a nice thick gravy. Not forgetting the colourful vegetables, the firm handmade yong tou foo fishpaste, the savoury local tou foo with a crunch (from the preserved vegetables and ginger) and that well-spiced roasted duck.
And her wonderful friends' wonderful desserts. Like the savoury Yorkshire Pudding dusted with icing sugar & laced with honey, that creative Riesling Jello and the soft Cream Puff With Lemon Custard Filling courtesy of Nigel and Allan. And that moist, juicy Pear And Ginger Upside Down Pudding from FatBoyBakes, which went very well with a double dose of Bulla.
A glimpse of the life of a lovely couple and their beloved doggies. Under the roof of their warm, loving home. With Wii.
Ah, how I envy them Pea and Pumpkin.
Thanks for the lovely lunch, Precious Pea Jie Jie and Gor Gor.
