My family loves braised pork belly in soya sauce. I am grateful to Sanku (三姑) who came so often to Singapore working as confinement lady, taught me this delicious dish. The trick is to pan-fry it without oil with lots of garlic till the greasy oil was oozing out for about 5 minutes. This is to eliminate the distinct smell of the pork. For the health conscious me, I sometimes bought the sweet and sour cut with the top layer of fat removed. The leftover from yesterday dinner - I packed it into my boy's lunchbox today which was well hidden under the brown rice. Then, I used half of the soya boiled egg to make a beetle. Cheese for its wings, nori for the head and eyes. Alongside in the garden, there were buttefly carrots, a floret of broccoli, blanched sugar beans, strawberries and kiwis.
In my earlier blog, I had mentioned my son started the borrowing and lending toys with one of his classmate, Oliver. It was never ending and he kept bringing all sort of toys home. And I believe, some of the toys are not cheap that I afraid it might get lost in the transition. On the other hand, I was concerned if his friend, Oliver, would forget to return my son's toy too. Too much worry but all in vain. The two boys were doing fine. However, I still remind my son to be responsible and accountable for the toys he borrowed. Here is Mater from the Disney Pixar Cars he borrowed.
