Taking a break from ....

... cuppies. Though I enjoyed baking and "dressing 'em", now it is time to take a break for a day or two before I embarked onto another project.

Been craving for Salted Fish Head Soup with Dried Vegetable for quite some time.

I think it has been a decade or even more since I last had this. I remembered how my granny used to make this soup. Her friend who sells Salted Fish used to call her up to pick up a head or two and I will follow my granny to her stall. I will see huge salted fish hanging upside down in her shop.

Guess I was too young to notice the stench that it gives off. Back home, granny will whip up this delicious soup for us. How I missed those days.

With the absence of such shop, I only managed to get them in packet form. Nevetheless, the house was filled with the aroma of this soup while brewing. Can't wait to have a bowl.


I found a packet of dried mango in the fridge, courtesy from Ly. I used to love this but once, my son's goddad gave us so many that I guess despite giving most away, my liking for this stopped.

So here I am, inspired by Quick 'n' Easy Treats's Raisin & Dried Mango Rice (from the Women's Weekly magazine).

Here is mine. I added minced pork and Japanese cucumber instead. Thanks Zu for sharing.

Verdict: Really delicious and with the added cucumber, it gives a nice crunch.
