KUCHING FOOD FESTIVAL 2008


If I were to recycle last year's photos and use them as this year's festival's pictures, no would be wiser, right? That's my sentiment on this yearly event to celebrate the city's stature. It's a recycle of old stuff plus a few new ones... ever just the same, ever a surprise, ever as before, and ever just as sure, as the sun will rise...

Then I saw a stall calling itself Hong Kong Char Kueh, eeerrrrrr?!!! And then I saw his face - the face that launched Char Kueh (fried white radish cake) and Chee Chun Fung (rice noodle wrap) at Crown Square's Dim-Sum so many years ago; thus the moniker. Having basked in the limelight of the previous day's publication of the Borneo Post, Lim was adament that I went away and came back in 5 minutes time to have a photo shoot; that's when the kueh would be fried to its golden glory! I meekly obliged, and this is it...

His cracking of the eggs technique is something to behold...

Then there was something new... not out in the market yet... Prawn Pizza!
It's akin to the shrimp fritters, but in a rectangular form. It comes in various toppings - from mayo to dragon fruit. It's a novelty... gotta work on the batter. Below were the odds and ends we managed to round up for the evening...


As we were strolling back to the car, we heard the guitar rift...

Tnaaayyy,Tnaaayyy,Tnaaayyy...
Tnaaayyy,Tnaaayyy,Taaanaaayyy...
Tnaaayyy,Tnaaayyy,Tnaaayyy...Taaañay!

They may not be Deep Purple but it sure sounded like Smoke On The Water

it's one of those things that throws you off the track... so when the real McCoy stares you right in the face, you wouldn't know; like the red lobster face of lppl sitting across my table at the penang koay teow... guys, this blog is not 'bout me.

ABOUT THIS BLOG

As the name implies, it's all about nothing! Kongkaying is like grasping in the air - more like hot air with occasional fartulence. Hopefully, something aromatic will come out of it! If not...

May the Farce be With You!
