nahhhhhh….. actually the fried fish wasnt all that bad….. it was traumatic having to see the fish starting back at me.
this alone could be enough to turn me into a vegetarian all my life… can you imagine eating all that muscle. condensed amino acids to form a protein polymer connected by all that peptide bonds……… hmmmm……. meat is actually muscle. imagine someone frying you and then tearing away all that muscle in your body……… gross…..
(forgive the blur pics cos i was snapping with my left hand while cringing my face and pushing myself to deal with raw fish.)
i actually cooked raw fish…
im still not over the shock!
anyway, this frying fish incident happened on thursday. i just didnt have the cable to transfer the pics till now.
today’s menu… (all prepared by ME. ME ME ME!!!)
fishball soup (super nice!!!!!)
prawn curry (super super nice!!!!!!) – my first time cooking curry from scratch. sardines doesnt count since it comes packed with curry. i added whatever i felt like adding. including yogurt. and though it looked cloudy, it actually tasted nice!!!!!!! like, i’m a genuis you know!
stir-fry french beans (ok ok lah)
stir-fry tau (quite nice, for a first attempt)
bitter gourd for lunch (very very nice!!!!!)
