Hubby is very busy flying in and out as he has started his new job this month and same time still managing the Sibu branch. 2 jobs at a time. Salary is the same, but more workloads. By October, he will pass the Sibu branch manager position to the next guy and station in Miri. So once a while he will be flying to Sibu over the weekend. This week, he will be in Miri and Labuan.
So he will request me to cook certain dishes when he is at home. How could I not cook for him? *wink* Last weekend, he was craving for pek ting yok chicken soup (8 treasure herbs chicken soup). So I just went to the Chinese medicine hall and get a packet of the ready-packed herb for RM9 and cooked it on Saturday evening.
Boiled the herbs for an hour or so before added in the kampung chicken
I do not really like the smell and taste of this herb soup, so I gave it a pass. But I did taste a bit of this fruit. Yeap, it is the season!! O-ka-na (or local called it, dabai). This yummy black olive is from Kapit, the best of all.
