When I sent pictures of my meals to me friends, they said I am 'hor mia' (good life in Hakka). haha. Everyday I would have either red wine chicken soup and/or kacangma, a veggie dish and steamed fishes. White pomfrets or empurau.
Do you eat your confinement food hot? I do. I learn this rule from my first CL who told me to switch off the air con, drink the kacangma/soup first then start eating rice and dishes. So my air con is not on 24hr a day. But I am sure to sweat like a tap water after each meals because of the heat from consuming those soups. lol.
MIL brought few slices of the Empurau fishes from Kapit last Monday and CL has been cooking empurau for me since then. I did not know she was bringing some of this infamous fish slices in till my SIL told me so because FIL told her. And when I shown my hubby the picture of my steamed empurau, he was complaining he had to eat salted egg in economy rice in his company's hostel canteen last week. Well, I guess that I got to enjoy the good food as I were the one going through pregnancy, delivery and confinement. Lol. I like Empurau but you need to be patient when eating it because of its bones.
CL just throw lots of gingers and garlic on top of the fish and add few tbsp of red wine and sesame oil. Sometimes she will add few pinch of salt.
And I always finish my plate. Left those bones only. *wink*
