Part 3 of the mini-series!
I simply love my room fridge. Never mind that we are paying $80 more per semester for its usage, the perks of having cold orange juice, cooling fruits and chilled chocolates are just so worth it! And besides stuffs that bought from supermarkets, homecooked food could be kept overnight too!
Roomie's parents came over one weekend evening and brought us a much-desired meal from home. Apologies for the jerky shots as we were basically two very hungry wolves who couldn't wait to get started!
The killer dish was the brownish looking thing at the top right, stewed duck simmered with ginger. Brought all the way from China, the duck breed was much smaller than what you usually saw in Singapore. It was oh-so-good with melting skin and tender meat shreds, with flavourful ginger absorbing the dark sauce and juices.
Besides that, stir-fried vegetables, sunny-side-ups, steamed fish and prawns filled us up real good! And in case you are wondering..
Salmon Sashimi ($10+)
No, my roomie parents were not Japanese chefs. We bought this at Jurong Point Kuriya while doing grocery shopping. A little indulgence to destress!
And my mom, not willing to be outdone (nah I'm kidding, there was no rivalry at all), cooked up a feast on another weekend! Again, the can of luncheon meat looked out of place. But well.. some cravings are just difficult to explain!
Beef Short Ribs with Asparagus and Mushrooms, Clear-boiled Chicken Soup
Somehow my mom always had stock of these fantastic boneless ribs in the freezer. Pan fried with pepper and vegetables, we cleared every bit of it! I didn't know how long she took to boil the chicken stock, but it was so rich with natural goodness that we couldn't get enough of it! Just to prove my point..
When I took out the lefover next day, it was choked so full of collagen that it turned into jelly! Tasted as good after reheating!
A heartfelt thank-you to both parents for showering us with tender-loving care despite not even going home. Will be good kids and make your troubles worthwhile!
