Confinement Dishes Make Me High!

Firstly ... congratulations to my colleague Lynn on her second child... 
Prince Shaun... 
12 days old Prince...

Secondly... the moment I have been longing for.... ok ok, not only me... my gang of oldies too... hahahaa.. we were looking forward to eating the 12th day of confinement dishes... just look at them!
actually two different dishes only...
the black vinegar pork legs with black beans and ginger..
glutinous rice wine with ginger plus black fungus...
looking at this still make me drool...
must get a "bib" first...
this confinement lady used the black vinegar
made from Penang... BEST!!
so sweet and so "KICK!"
one for the album
the two "god-grandmothers"
LOL....

All these were taken during lunch time... 
our faces were reddish from the wine consumed...
Well, for me, I really felt a bit "high" after drinking so much rice wine.... 
I LOVE CONFINEMENT DISHES... BEST!!

  2. The knuckle with extra thick fat layer looked so scary. How to get rid of the fat if I eat the whole of it??? No giving birth for me, no confinement for me, no taking care of babies... I am so grateful to have made up my mind not to get involved in such a complicated world of motherhood... Phew!

  16. Gosh, I don't know what confinement dishes are. It is a custom we don't have. Confinement is right after she has had her baby? Does everyone bring her meals for awhile?

  21. Claire, I think Arthur has blogged a few times in his blog about "kacang ma". Hard to explain. It is cooked with a type of herbs leaves with either white or red wine. I don't think over your place got this type of leaves cos I used to bring over whenever I go KL and cooked for my daughter.She loves it so much.
