This comment had me in stitches. fire80 is one humourous guy. I had asked him to start his own blog because I am sure it will be a hit.
I would like to tell you about Rendang Kuda. I ate this piece of delicious spicy rendang contributed by or receptionist.
I thought it was some chewy beef. It was really delicious until she announced En. f1re80 that is Horse-meat my auntie cooked.
I smiled (inside Horror) chew chew chew (some more horror), my throat started to tighten. chew chew chew, my body start to rebel, ran to the dust bin and phthoooeeey pthoooey, run some more to the pantry diabetes or not and eat sugarâ€¦. (note to self- to remind secretary if I start to neigh to send myself to a bomoh/ shaman).
After 3 hours I am still on my 5 mug of cold water trying to get rid of the memoriesâ€¦of horse in my mouth.
Apparently Horses from Ipoh retire from racing int9o the Rendang Pot. And the Bawean/ Boyan community (Of indonesian Decsent) in Malaysia consider Horse (Phthoooeey!) Meat a delicacy.
He asked me to do a little investigative gourmet research. No way, fire80. I am not going to eat a horse! Not even dogs or cats or camels.
Anyway, about the gripes of some sectors who said it is ‘not nice’ to sembelih the cows and goats at public fields, I just want to say, STFU. Tell me, how are you going to squeeze a cow into your 600 sq. feet flat? Huh? Huh? Huh? Go figure?
BTW, talking about sacrifices, I was at Jalan Imbi, about to tuck into a RM30 sang meen (huge river prawns noodle) on Monday night and a few doors away, they were slaughtering a cow. My kids had wanted to take my DLSR which is super huge to snap photos. I did not allow them because I know I will be too grossed out to view them later. Anyway, it is very rude, don’t you think so?
My two older kids are aware of Abraham and his faith in God. So, the three of us were telling our 9 yrs old (#3) how Abraham had wanted to sacrifice his son but God was touched and told him to sembelih (slaughter) a cow instead. Well, #3 asked us a lot of questions related to Nabi Ibrahim and Abraham. Most of the questions, we don’t know the answers (‘cos I haven’t finished understanding the Old Testament) so, we just tell him, “Aiyah, just remember that in the Quran and Bible, there is this man and he wanted to kill his son as sacrifice to God but God accepts cows and goats too.”
BTW, in case some of you aren’t very sure what exactly is the reason behind killing these animals, it is a vow they made with God and they are fulfilling it. My ex-colleague, Roslan (driver) explained to me that he cannot afford the price of a whole goat so he shared with others and kill a goat as thanksgiving to Allah for blessing him with another son after his previous baby died of heart condition.
Roslan is a joker and told me he can only afford the kote of the kambing. LOL.
