Spicy Frog With Broth

The other night my friends took me to this shop, somewhere near Tesco, Ipoh Garden South... Their speciality is claypot porridge taken with claypot ginger, dry chillies cooked with frogs...... frogs?.... FROGS?? yes, no kidding ... u heard me right... (in chinese teen kai)

Do not be alarmed.. these special type of frogs can be eaten, grandmothers alike will tell you that they are good for our skin, especially cooked with porridge for toddlers to eat... dare to try?

very smoothly cooked porridge, I love it...

nah, this is the cooked Frogs...
not yucky, right?
in fact they are so tasty..
yumm yummmm

ok, if u don't like frogs,
u can take this grilled spicy fish
sprinkled with some lime juice...


  1. I think I'll just take the grilled spicy fish than the frogs...hehehe I'm curious, how did the frogs taste?...

  2. well.. frankly..u wouldnt taste much of the meat but with the dried chillies and ginger, it is delicious.. the flesh must not be overcooked.. anyway, after cutting up, u dont know which part is which.. just eat it up!

  3. The only way I can eat this is ... if I don't know they're frogs :)

  4. hi dear, this is very common in SG. Can have it in many places. There is also a wide range of cooking style in the claypot. Can have ginger with spring onion, dried chilly, or cooked with the porridge. The frogs here are also slaughter live before cooking, so the meat is nice and fresh.

  5. wow,,,you make me hungry :)

  6. I think I'll choose the grilled fish.

  7. yeah Loo.. but i nv tasted it together with the broth.. yes, slaughtered alive is fresh.. dont see it being cut up.. haha..

  8. interesting....

    the last time i had this was ages ago, forgot how it taste like...

  9. it's not new to me Claire, i did eat that when i was in elementary grades hehehe...i didn't know it was frog at first coz it is so deliciou

    i thought it is chicken....after lunch, when they told me that its frog, i just taste good anyway...hehehe

  10. The flesh is very smooth if it is just nicely cooked, and it is more expensive than chicken meat.. :)

  11. i love frogs... we used to order a frog dish (with chili garlic sauce) in binondo (manila). it tasted delicious.. and then in pampanga we have a dish called betute, which is a stuffed frog.. hmmm yummy! :)

  12. i love these. they are called Bull-frogs. lovely, taste like chicken meat. i used to cooked them in broth/congee for my girls cos they say helps them to strengthen their legs.

  13. we asians eat almost anything, right?
    spymama, thanks for the name, bull frog..ok..good, i only know the exact name in i know it is called bull frog..
    eaten this before but never with the broth actually, first time..

  14. i hav always loved "teen kai" especially if it is cooked spicy and hot, not teen kai broth though.

    how has your weekend been?

    wishing you a early start to a great week ahead, take care now and god bless

  15. I dont know if I will be able to swallow the frog dish.. but many people said that frog tastes like chicken though..

  16. I love the porridge! I will take a little of the frog legs though =) Too much make me jerlah!

  17. i LOVE frog porridge! =P *drool*slurp*

  18. YUUUUUUUMMMMMMMMMMM YYYYYYYYYYYYUUUUUUUUUMMMMMMMMM... HEHEHE.. i can see mouth watering dishes, no matter what the ingredient ;) it still looks delicious.. hehe

    thanks so much for the visit to my site :)

  19. My parents (or grandparents?? cant remember exactly) said to me that if one has skin problems, rashes etc, he should eat frogs to cure it. I guess, there must be some truth in it ya?

    I think I tried fried frogs when I was a kid. It was cooked with dark soy sauce, a bit of lemon juice, sprinkles of chopped spring was delicious! :)

Three Hours City Tour At Ensenada, Mexico

A THREE HOURS CITY TOUR when we embarked in Mexico on the second morning.   My sister booked the three hours city tour in Ensenada, Mexico, a van came to pick us up from the port.  Ensenada is the border of Mexico and it reminds me of Hatyai, a border town too between Malaysia and Thailand.  We were taken to a shopping area where we must haggle for the goods.  LOL.. Yes, something common in my own country... Anyway, we did not buy anything for ourselves... just a wooden handmade truck for my grandson which cost $8usd.   Nothing much to shout about on this three hours excursion, I was so sleepy on the way back to the ship that I dozed off and only awaken when we were driven through the town.  All in all, I just wanted to step onto Mexican soil and I would give this a miss if I were to go on this Mexico cruise again.  LOL... At the open area shopping walking towards the Blowhole... This is La Bufadora Blowhole, an amazing natural marine geyser that is capable of shooting water over 60 fe

Exploring The Sea Cruise Royal Caribbean

CRUISING ALONG.... Once we deposited our bags in our cabins, we had our buffet meal at the Hammerjack restaurant and exactly at 4pm, we heard a loud Horn signal...  ITS TIME TO SAIL ALONG THE PACIFIC OCEAN! And while the ship started to sail, we humans started to walk and explore.... to familarize ourselves inside the ship....  Elevators on each side of the ship....  Making my mark....  On another side....  We walked along to check out our food outlets... This Promenade Cafe  had became our regular joint .... We like to sit there enjoying our hot drinks and desserts... Free flow of food day and night.... Passing through the bars to the casino... The casino will open only when the ship is in international waters...  At one of the jackpot machines... I wonder if they are real?? But they are only $1 bundles... Then we went up to the highest floor.... The swimming deck.... Taken against the sun.... Nice sunset in the evening.... The Happy Trio!

The Good, The Bad But Not Ugly

MISSING AND NOW BACK IN ACTION...  I checked back my last post and it was 8 March last month and today is 19 April, less than two months only.  So what has been happening in my life?  Lots and lots... good news, bad news, sad news... all concerning health and I guess this is our life cycle as we live day by day.   My health is also not that "fantastic" during the past few months, but mine is a small rock compared to giant boulder which my best buddy is undergoing... I guess some of you know what is happening to her from her blog posts.  I was totally devastated when this happened to her, my tears couldn't help falling and my heart goes out to her.  I am ashamed to say that instead of me giving the comfort that she needs, I am the one that have been receiving her strength in times like this.  She might be crushed physically but she is not broken in her spiritual mind and soul.  One word... "Unbreakable!"  She is a shining example..... "What can death do to m
