Rants, Ramblings and Nothingness

A messy collection of random stuff really!!

The Glorious Babi Hong!!

It’s been so long since I wanted to try making hakka specialty dish, babi hong aka hong bak. My mother’s babi hong is good, but the best is my aunt-grandmother’s(errhh… what’s the correct correct term for the sister of my grandmother?). The juicy gravy, tender meat and the chewy fat is really unforgettable! Hmmm… I’d better request for it in my next return trip to Jakarta. I’ve been planning to make it since two week ago, and today finally I cooked my first BABI HONG!!! yeahhhh!!! It took around 4 hours to cook it, but the end result is not bad at all! Credit goes to a recipe from a blog that is very descriptive and easy to follow: http://cikciks.multiply.com/recipes/item/40/Babi_Hong_Hong_Bak and also a tip from my friend’s mother during my friend’s birthday. Here’s the end result:

My First Babi Hong

Not so bad looking ain’t it? ;-p I will definitely try to cook it again someday since it worth the effort. Speaking of food, I have finally gain the result of more food and more training, my weight has increased by two kilograms, one kilo short of 75 kg(although after I eat something, usually I reached the 75 kg mark). I’m planning to reach at least 77 kg, although if it is possible, I want to try 80 kg. But I need to do a lot of running also, to avoid my body storing the fat of those meaty dishes that I consume and prevent my body movement from being slowed down by the weight increase. I feel that after two kilo weight addition, there’s more power in my techniques and I also feel less tired every time I train, hopefully another 3 kilo will be OK for my body also.
