Had a wonderful dinner at Yvonne’s place with Carina and Supra.
It was just darn hilarious when I mistaken “tang hoon” (vermicelli), for glutinous rice balls (tong yun) in hokkien yesterday night after the movies. I thought, wow, rice balls stuffed with peanuts and sesame seeds for dinner. Cool. Kinda missed the “Ah Bo Leng” in chinatown.
I was outrageously wrong. The whole gang burst into laughter after discovering the truth 🙂
That goes to show one thing – my understanding of the Hokkien dialect is meagrely within acceptable limits. Hahhaa…Imagine I’m a doctor trying to talk to a Hokkien speaking patient in the emergency ward. I’m sure it would be very, very interesting. That is if I don’t end up killing him 😛
The dinner just now was sumptuous. Reminds me of home. Many thanks to Carina, Supra and Yvonne who prepared the meal. The “tang hoon” and chicken curry were superb. Too bad I didn’t snap any pictures. Otherwise those of you out there who haven’t been eating home cooked food will be green with envy seeing the spread. Hehhee…
Finishing my glass of Riesling vintage 2005 by Jacob’s Creek and the last piece of Sara Lee’s baked cheesecake. Hmm…probably I need to weigh myself later. Good night all!
