Monday Blues

ARRGGHHHH EEERRRGGGHHHHH , must work , must pay bills , must feed family . I wish i could stop working for at least 3 month and do what i love the most and spend time with my family . I do envy those MAT SALLEH who just quit their work and embark on an adventure of a lifetime . Still a very long long way to go before my retirement , how i wish i could retire tomorrow.

Gulai Asam Rom

The quest for exotic food had brought me to Raub today.This traditional dish was so rare that you can only find it in Raub and Jerantut . The main ingredient of this dish which had made it so special and rare is rubber seed. Yup!!, natural rubber seed .I was told that the rubber seed is crushed and left to dry before it is pickled for a period of one month.This pickled rubber seed is then added with fish and other ingredient before being made into gulai asam rom.Besides natural rubber seed , "buah perah" was also used as substitute as it was readily available and easier to process.The taste is quite unique with a combination of peppery hot, bitter and sour but generally it was delicious.Do try it whenever you passed by bandar raub or jerantut.

Gulai asam rom ikan keli.I was told that ikan kenerak is more suitable with this dish.

You will know forgiveness has begun when you recall those who hurt you and felel the power to wish them well.
Selamat hari raya aidilfitri.
