So, on Sunday I wanted to make bak kut teh but couldn’t find the muslin bag that I know I have somewhere in my drawers. (Muslin is a kind of cotton material cloth) Over tea, I pok-pek to my dear hubby who just came back from his badmiton, all sweaty.
Me : Dear, you seen my muslin bag, nay, the white cloth bag like coffee filter?
Him : How do I know, you got so many barang-barang.
Me : Aiyerrrr….*teh mode* like this how to make bak kut teh ah? The herbs need to be put into a bag cos there are fine pieces of broken herbs etc.
Him : You want? Nah, go to my drawer and get one of my white cotton underwear. Same also.
Me : YOU! SO GELI!
Him : No lah. Where got? You think those bak kut teh stall go and buy what what muslin bag ah? They also use their underwear and tied with raffia string only.
Me : Shaddap liao. Uweekkk….
Him : Hah, if not, you want the one (underwear) I am wearing now? With all the sweats…lagi best, full of flavour.
Me : Sons, you see lah, I married a crazy man. Ammah!!!!!! I was blind, I never listen to your advice, I simply marry……*slaps forehead*
Anyway, I bought another muslin bag but haven’t brew the bak kut teh yet because now, I am short of ingredients. I bet the bak kut teh will taste great with all the herbs freshly grounded. And no, no underwear in the soup.
