Coconut Cookies, Saba Fish and Fish Fillet

Over there in Laguna, I used to eat the "uraro". It is a kind of cookie that is made from coconut. I really missed that uraro from Laguna. Since, it was wrapped individually with white Japanese paper, I used to take a lot of pieces and consumed it while no one was looking. They used to teased me that "ipinaglihi daw ako sa niyog." Though, I really got irritated that easy by the teasing of my 4 elder brothers, I really did'nt mind. Though you know, I was "pikon" during those times.

And luckily here in Singapore, they have the coconut cookies. Last Hari Raya Haji, I ate a lot. Coconut cookies taste almost the same as my Laguna uraro.

Fish is also my likes. To be honest, I like galunggong better than the red snapper. Unfortunately, there's no galunggong here. So I just see to it that I eat any type of fish I can set my eyes to.

When we went to Scotts Road, we ate at the Food Court there. I ordered the Saba Fish from Ed's Fish. It was good, though it tasted a little bit bland. I think it is not salty enough.

Well, my husband ordered the Fish Fillet, as usual. As much as possible, he likes to order fish without the head. "Ang arte!!!!" He told me that his British friends in Hong Kong used to ask him why Asians like to eat fish with head. "Eh, bakit nga kaya???"

Talaga tayong mga pinoy ay mahilig sa medyo salty. I think kaya gusto natin ang ulo ng fish dahil sa kakaibang malinamnam na lasa. Iba talaga tayo di ba?
