Miscellaneous Picture #36: my childhood

During my sickness, I had a moment of time where I were looking through old photo albums and reminiscing about my childhood.


I particularly love this one. An old photograph of me and my younger siblings posing with my dad's old car in front of my maternal grandparents' old house in Kenyalang Park. 

Can anyone from Kuching recognise where is this location by looking at the background? 

I could not be more than 13 years old that time. My sis should be same age as my Jan that time. I were pretty skinny when I were young but as I hit puberty, I were curvier and more on the fleshy type. I am the shortest and fattest among my siblings!



One of my most favourite food during my childhood is this porridge cooked by my mum. Cuttlefish porridge. Mum cooked it almost every fortnight as I could remember. My dad loved (and still do) to eat this porridge so he would always requested mum to cook for suppers.

Do you love looking through old photo albums? What is your favourite childhood's food?

So you are the big sister in your family? I used to like looking through old photos but not anymore. Nowadays I prefer to look forward.My favourite childhood food is mee suah and it still is one of my favourite food now.

I went to read the recipe because I like to eat congee too. How come dried cuttlefish also have purplish skin?

The tallest on the far left is you?

Rose said...

Yes they dry the whole cuttlefish during the process so you need to clean the purple skin out when you cook the porridge.

Rose said...

Yup I am the eldest.
