421. Bemasak & GT

SIL came back from offshore 2 days ago. He brought home this huge fish.
He said this is called 'Ikan Bemasak' or sometimes people called it 'GT'. I have no idea, I thought at first it is 'Ikan Belokok'. That's what me and hubby called it or fishes that look like it. Smaller of course.

Do you have another name for this fish?

This was the head...

It's tail part...taken near...

Hubby helped cut the fish into small parts using his Company's machine (a machine used to cut chicken parts).

He told me when he weigh the fish on the scale it weighs over 9 kilos.

Today I cooked it's head into Curry he he...

So..we ate 'Curry Fish Head' for lunch today :)

Curry Fish Head (2 pictures)

To cook...it's simple :)

1. Clean the cut fish head parts under tap water, put into a sieve and place aside to drip dry.

2. Blend 3 red onions, 4 garlic, 2" ginger with some water in an electric blender.

3. Pour some cooking oil in a pot.

4. When hot pour in the blended ingredients and let boiled. Add one stalk of lightly grounded lemongrass.

5. Add in 2 tablespoons of blended dried red chillies or according to taste.

6. Add a small packet of 'Rempah Tumis' and some curry leaves (optional).

7. Add 5 tablespoons of 'Babas' curry powder. Add in 1 packet of 'Cocolin' coconut powder. *Both mixed with some water to dilute*

8. Add in the fish and add salt to taste.

9. Let boiled quickly and then off fire.

Vegetable for today was 'Kangkong Tumis Belacan', which Aya (who is offduty) offered to cook.

I thought if there is Curry there must be ' Sambal Belacan' ...so I made this :D

Last but not least, this Soy sauce, add some lime juice and cut cilli padi to it, to eat the fish head with.

What can I say.... we had a Yummy lunch today!

Why American men should boycott American women


I am an American man, and I have decided to boycott American women. In a nutshell, American women are the most likely to cheat on you, to divorce you, to get fat, to steal half of your money in the divorce courts, don’t know how to cook or clean, don’t want to have children, etc. Therefore, what intelligent man would want to get involved with American women?

American women are generally immature, selfish, extremely arrogant and self-centered, mentally unstable, irresponsible, and highly unchaste. The behavior of most American women is utterly disgusting, to say the least.

This blog is my attempt to explain why I feel American women are inferior to foreign women (non-American women), and why American men should boycott American women, and date/marry only foreign (non-American) women.


BRAND NEW: Buy the Boycott American Women book. After reading this book, I promise you that you will never even think about dating an American woman ever again, or else I will give you your money back. That's right, if you are not convinced by my book, I will give you a full refund!

Small Kucing - Yep, it's huge. So after being cut, I clean them and pack them into small plastic bags so it will be easier to get them out from the fridge for days to come :P
