    For those who do not know what “fu ru” is… here are some links:



  4. Whats next? operation “mui heong”??

    Jaben: Yes… Russman, Jaben loves you πŸ™‚

    For our foreign friends and those who don’t know what we are talking about; “mui heong” can be translated as “rotten fragrance”. In order to make good salted fish… at least over in this part of the world… the fish is salted only when it starts to rot. Don’t be put off by the word… it’s like good meat that is left to “age”. What happens is, when the meat starts rotting, it get soft and when it is salted, it just turns out to be really good. This is the main reason why it is hard to get this type of salted fish. Fresh fish fetches a good price and all the good fish is always sold. So the opportunity to get this type of salted fish “mui heong” is very very difficult. In the old days when there was no refrigeration, there will always be fish that is not sold, so…

  5. so… i should type properly next time, so you wont have to explain every word i said.
    So did your power box tripped when you plug in the fubar II?

    Jaben: Nope… I told you not to be naughty… never mind, I’m gonna make you happpy…

  6. speaking of “mui”.. there is another dish that i like very much..
    “mui choy”. (vegetable dish)

    Jaben: So do I… actually there is an even more exotic derivative, know an “ngian choy”

  7. You all are making me hungry…time for me to go for lunch…Bon AppΓ©tit.
