I bought some frogs or in Cantonese we called it Tin Kai from the wet market about two weeks ago. Last Saturday I cook the Frog Porridge for my kids. I am surprised both of them love it and finish the whole pot of porridge in the kitchen. According to my aunty, the frog’s meat is good for cleansing the blood in our body. I’ve added some tong kwai and kei chi ( wolfberries ) into the porridge and it tasted so sweet.
While cooking in the kitchen, I overheard an argument from my next door Malay neighbour. It is really sad when you heard it. The old Malay man who loves his son dearly quarrel with his son over some money issue. Then the son who is only my age start quering his father whether he is his real son or an adopted son. Worst still he wanted to do a paternity test to confirm. Gosh, what a bad son! Well, this is the reality in life once there are issue involved with MONEY, I am sure there are something to argue about. While cooking the porridge, I just hope and pray that my kids don’t treat me like this when I am old.
