Journey to the Center of Food Heaven #12

This post begin with a story, unrelated...

It was a very hot late afternoon. Granny was busy in the kitchen preparing dinner for grandpa and the family. She has been doing this for as long as she can remember, and she loves it. All her children grow with her cooking. She knows her food not only healthy and nutritious, but with love that make her family strong.

A small girl ran and curiously asked her granny:"Where is heaven, Por por? How can we get there?"

The old lady answered:"Its in your heart. As long as you see it, it's in your heart."

... As long as we see it, everywhere is heaven.

... As long as we appreciate, everything is heaven's food.





Picture taken in a morning market at a residential area. There is a stall selling giant "dim sum" for take away. Steamy hot food in a cold morning. The yellow balls were "fu jok" stuffed with rice. Underneath were lotus leave rice, with a large piece of chicken inside. And of cause, beside those were "har kau" and "siu mai".
The auntie selling those curiously looking me taking picture. But she smile when I showed her my taken.





Layers and layers of "bao" steamed and ready to serve. Piture taken at the same stall selling those "ha kau". It is just an ordinary stall serving ordinary food. But when you see heaven, lots of people queuing for breakfast with love.



This uncle prepared stuffed "cheong fan" piece by piece. Very patient. Very professional. More interesting, there were people more patient queuing for that.



One by one, he prepare those "cheong fan". I was a little fed up and walk away. Shame as I recall many other still waiting patiently.


Night food street in Macau, near the Dog Racing Ring. Same feeling as we walk in our Pasar Malam. Food sold not very special, but environment was special for me.



"Wor Tip"... looks kinda nice, but taste as ordinary as plain rice.



Sticky rice was great. Price even better.


Chicken carefully marinated and cooked. Looks yummy but I was too full to try already.
