爸爸很爱热闹,尤其喜欢一家共聚的气氛。

难得劳动节(五月一日)公共假期,我又在马,就邀了二舅母和堂弟妹们来我们店铺开大吃会。

[嘻嘻! 抱歉,我爱吃,我爸爱吃,我男朋友爱吃 :)写了那么多篇有关美食的贴字,还是要写,而且会继续吃,继续写 :)]

爸爸早在几天前已想好要煮什么。

当天一早去甲洞菜市场 (巴刹)买材料。

回到家就大显身手做大厨,誓要煮出一顿人人举起大姆指赞好的美肴不可。

我也不多说了,贴上几张照片,让你们评, 也让你们羡慕吧!:P

坦白说,老爸煮的咖哩好吃过我的 ! 姜是老的辣 !也难怪,在马买得到新鲜的椰浆和好的咖哩浆。(给自己找藉口:)

还有, 二舅母的甜麦粥加蜀粒, 妈妈的红豆沙……甜品,我的最爱!

哦! 有一件事要提,妈妈和二舅母说,咖哩鸡是不加pandan叶的 ,咖哩叶已够了。原来,是我自作聪明(见生日和饯行晚餐):p 。我被揪出狐狸尾,推搪说多伦多买不到咖哩叶! 这倒是真的。只是,不好意思,误导大家。 抱歉。

可是,当我读到,在劳动节当天,美国,澳门和泰国都有劳工为争取一些权益游行示威。我们却只是快快乐乐吃了一天 (看我的堂弟们吃得多开心),而感到一点点的内疚。

My father loves family gathering. As a Chinese, family gathering is important, not only to strengthen bonds as a family and frequent gathering also signifies a harmonious family.

On Labour Day (1st May), my father has invited my aunt and my cousins for lunch in our shop. Partly because it was a public holiday, partly also because for them to see me.

My father started to plan for the menu a few days ahead and woke up very early to go to Kepong ‘pasar’ (it is a Malay word refers to street market) to buy ingredients on that day.

He wanted to cook for everyone and he did not disappoint us ! I won’t say much here but posted the photos for your comments 🙂

Well, I think his curry chicken was tastier than mine but my excuses were we could buy better and fresher ingredients in KL 🙂

My aunt and mother had cooked my favourite desserts – red bean soup and chiinese sticky barley soup.

Look how happy my cousins were ! 🙂

One thing I have to mention here is – my mother and aunt told me that we normally do not add pandan leaves but only curry leaves to curry chicken ! Opps ! So, adding pandan leaves as mentioned in previous post was only my own creation but not authentic style. My apology to the readers if I mislead you in anyway !
