My two sisters came to Singapore last week for holiday. My Mom and other relatives came too but all of them had gone back and some continued their journey somewhere else. Since my hubby was off, he decided to invite my two sisters and brother with his families to have steamboat at our house for dinner.
It's preferable to eat steamboat during rainy day. Since morning the weather kept changing from hot to rain for few times. It had caused me to move my bed sheet and laundries from our house balcony (to get more sun light and wind) to the laundry area provided for few rounds as there was no roof on top of our balcony. At the end, there was no rain outside during night time and we ended up turning our air-con on inside our living room.
|Steamboat plus Chang-pa and arra from Bhutan|
Since there were many people coming, and there were still few packs leftover of dry noodle snack that I bought for children yesterday, I decided to try to make the dry Chang-pa myself using that, mixed with green chilli and shallots.
I took out the arra from Bumthang too to accompany eating with it. I let the rest try the taste of plain arra. After that I tried to cook it with butter and egg :) Hmmmm.... Very familiar smell came out from the pot. I think I had successfully made it hehehe.... not bad ah... I could even make it myself and enjoyed the Bhutan arra in Singapore. I let the rest trying it but most of them didn't like the taste. They were not used to it. Hahaha... Ended up I had to finish it (just 3 very small glasses), but it was strong enough to make me feeling dizzy ;P
While the rest started eating, I was still busy eating Chang-pa and drank the arra slowly. Anyway I wasn't hungry yet and usually Chang-pa and arra would make people full before having their dinner hahaha...
It reminded me of my previous dining experience in Bhutan and shared the story with the rest of the people. However, it wouldn't applicable over here as people had started hungry at 7pm and was busy eating while I shared my story with them. I missed my drinking khaki from Bhutan......
