Bah Kuh Teh & New Year Wishes

2008 has been a very important year for me. One big milestone was that it was my first time to travel outside the country. And when it rains, it pours as I wasn’t only able to go to Singapore, but also to Hongkong, all in the span of 4 months.

So, I think it’s appropriate that my first post for the year includes a little something related to that. Yes, I’m still backlogged post-wise and I hope you’ll forgive me for that, but it’s still timely anyway.

Bah Kuh Teh

2 October 2008 • Bento #220

Bah kuh teh is a peppery pork and garlic stew that I first tried in Singapore. I enjoyed it so much so I bought a couple of spice packs for making it. It’s simple enough to cook. You simply stewed the pork and whole garlic heads in water with the spice pack that looked like a giant tea bag. I followed the instructions on the pack to the letter but I must confess, it wasn’t as good as the one I tried at Glutton’s Bay. Still, having this bento brought me fond memories and reminded me of my promise to come back and see (and taste!) even more of the country.

Along with the Bah kuh teh, I packed some rice, plum tomato wedges and diced peaches. Not exactly a well-matched pairing but tomatoes are always something I enjoy munching on, even solo so it was no big deal.

Happy New Year everyone! I hope 2009 brings us much cheer, happiness and more adventures to enjoy!

    It wasn’t as good as the one in Singapore :( but it was satisfying enough.

    Now there’s an idea! Why didn’t I think of that—it’s practically a must since I love cows. I hope I find the time to make one. <3

    Awww, thanks Mimi! Happy New Year too!

    Happy New Year too!

    I hope so! After that first trip, I realized I enjoy traveling! I want to try and see if I can go travel at least once a year. Looks like I need to reconsider my fiscal priorities. 😛
