What's for lunch?

Tired and bored of eating out. Today, I tapau-ed some home-cooked food for lunch. Simple cooking only. Deep-fried ikan kerisi and sayur petola (loofah) which I bought on my way back yesterday. Too bad, we don’t have any microwave in the office, can’t re-heat them. But never mind la …as long as I have my fav appetizer!


Yup, that’s what I’m talking about. Our famous local delicacy, the hinava. The Kadazans version of sushi. Have to remind myself not to have too much of it though. Its very sour that my saliva is accumulating as I am typing..hahaha… If you intend to serve hinava for your guests during open-house, better save some for yourself first or you’ll end-up staring at an empty plate… :)

Unlike the nanggiu, I have mastered the skill of making the hinava. Give me all the ingredients and I’ll be happy to make you this tasty appetizer. :) But the one I’m having now was made by dear mom last night. She made a whole container of it and kept it in the fridge. Enough to last for the whole week…

Okay, enjoy your lunch guys! :)
