The Pork Knuckle at Nuremberg

Germany has been well-known for the pork knuckle with crispy skin and tender meat on the inside. Therefore, our tour guide promised us to have a meal with this must-have dish during our last day in Germany.

In order to fulfil his promised, our tour guide brought us to a very nice restaurant at Nuremberg for lunch. The restaurant has a courtyard and also a large dining hall with a medieval setting.

Since our group had sixteen persons, we were seated at a long dining table inside the dining hall. Not long after we had settled down, each of us was served a bowl of soup with egg strips.

Once we had finished with the soup, the famed pork knuckle was served. The portion of pork knuckle was so big that it was more than enough to feed two persons. Therefore, I could not finish it and I skipped dinner too after this meal. The pork knuckle was quite nicely done at this restaurant. The skin was crispy and the meat was tender. The pickled cabbage that went with it was very nice too.

Although I was already very full after the main course, there was still enough room to accommodate two scoops of ice cream to top if off.

Chinese New Year 2015

The first day of Chinese New Year (CNY) this year fell on a Thursday. Therefore, thee was a long weekend for the celebration. However, time really flies during festive seasons, especially when we had to receive visitors at our house and also pay our relatives some visits. It was just like a blink of an eye and it is the fifth day of CNY already!

As usual, our house served layered cakes and cookies to the visitors. These layered cakes and cookies were home-baked by my sister-in-law which are one of the best that one can get in Kuching. You were very lucky if you could get to take your order from her this year.

For the CNY home décor, my brother brought back some peach blossoms from Singapore and the flowers are still blooming.

My bother's family had left for Singapore yesterday, so we had our final reunion dinner before they left. We had the garlic-butter giant prawns, scallops in abalone sauce and braised cabbage with abalone slices and shitake mushrooms. This was my third meal at home with prawns since the first day of CNY! It's time to do more workout to digest all those cholesterol intake.
