ASPIRING BAKERS #29 : TAU YU BAK ( BRAISED PORK BELLY )

Back to those days , where I used to tie my pony tails high up , it was really fun and stress free days . Well, not really stress free all the time , heehee.... gotcha. There were those " exam is coming " time where I feel extremely excited and stressful . Gosh ... time flies . Those were the day I look like some "kampung ah moi " ( village girl ) .

When I saw Aspiring Bakers Theme , "Tau Yu Bak" came to my mind. I have always love having this dish as my dinner .  Childhood memories are always happy and ... errrr childish . But who cares . It's the most precious memories we have during our younger years of growing up to become who we are now. Anyone still remember their most trendy outfit back at teenage times ? Man, I can't believe myself when I flip thru those photo albums. My most trendy outfit was my baggy jeans with a checkered long sleeve blouse . I was really LMAO when I saw that very photo of myself.

Every family will have their own version of "Tau Yu Bak". Whereas my mom's version is actually Fuss Free and easy to prepare . Trust me, you will never get bored of this dish anytime soon .
