waxed duck . fish soup

Waxed duck - this is something we eat only once a year, during the CNY period. We only bought the drumsticks. It is also not something you eat a lot because it is as salty as salted fish. Here is the leftover which can be kept for several days.

Eating a few pieces of this is enough to help you finish a bowl of rice.

How to cook - chop the drumsticks into small pieces, cut off as much skin and fats as possible and then steam it.

Fish soup

A friend saw me eating fish soup twice at the same stall in a hawkers' centre. He concluded that my favourite food is fish. Do you think he is right?

At that hawkers' centre, I eat chicken rice and wanton mee more than the fish soup but the friend didn't see me eating the chicken rice or the wanton mee.

Well, the wanton mee is nothing special, not one of those highly-rated. The chicken rice is ordinary, just like any chicken rice you find in a hawkers' centre. The fish soup is more popular. At peak hours you have to wait for 30 to 45 minutes.

The answer to my question - yes, I like to eat fish. But my friend's deduction method is not convincing.

By the way, I also like the waxed duck.

You know, just now I typed an f instead of a d in the above sentence. Luckily I checked before posting; otherwise you all will be shocked. Do you know that the d and f keys are just next to each other.

Haha, if your ill-informed friend saw the miss-typed "duck" word, he would certainly jump to an obvious conclusion that you not only liked waxed duck but also...

Vic, haha yes, he might make some weird deduction.
