The best teh tarik in Penang – voted by my son whose tongue has double the number of taste buds than others. Haih…school holidays, new camera and too much time on hands, he actually learnt how to count the number of taste buds on his tongue. All thanks to the internet.
That’s my dinner taken several hours ago and I am still so full. No help that I watched Animal Planet which showed a python swallowed a whole antelope alive. Ewws…including the horns and skull. And now my piece of beef, squid eggs and cucumber are churning in my stomach. According to the documentary, the python doesn’t have to eat for another year.
From here on, the section is for the girls. Question time!
Do you have this freaking, annoying hormone cycle that makes you crave for chillies? I must eat hot, hot, hot chillies for at least two weeks in each month. I think if you feed me the most expensive cuisine minus the chillies, I will burst into tears. In moments like this, I wish I have married a mamak who can cook pots and pots of curry for me. Then, I can eat till like a bosomy mamak lady.
OK, lah, this photo looks sort of cute so I think you won’t feel pukey.Â Here’s a photo of my #2 son’s tongue. Â Â He placed some food colouring on the tongue, place a little piece of plastic on it and count the number of pink dots.Â (location Â to count the taste buds is 0.5 cm from the tip of the tongue)Â The little plastic is taken from those three holes puncher.Â Â Compared to the others, he got the most pinkish dots in the tiny area.Â Now that explains why he is such a picky eater and I am such a suffering mom.
Argggh…now he wants to test my taste buds.Â Help!!! I am at the mercy of the kids.Â Here comes the blue food colouring.Â STOP BLOGGING, MOM.Â OPEN YOUR MOUTH.Â PUT OUT YOUR TONGUE! Â
Let’s see what my tongue looks like, close-up later.
