Favorite Childhood Meal #Writing101

Day 10 : Tell us about your favorite childhood meal — the one that was always a treat, that meant “celebration,” or that comforted you and has deep roots in your memory.

For today’s post, I’ve been confused of what meal I should write. There’s so much delicious food that came from my hometown, Medan. Yeah, Medan is one of the culinary city in Indonesia. Everything seems so delicious here slurrp. When I go back to my hometown later on July, I will make some blog post of the most famous food in Medan. Sooo, stay tunee !!!

Back to the topic, I have one in mind my favorite childhood meal, but I don’t know what are they called in English so I’ve been investigating a little bit. I found one phrase that nearly symbolized the meal. It’s Tofu Skin Soup. (I don’t know what they called but in my family we called it “Hu Tek Theng” or in Medanese Hokkien we called it “Tek Gia Ki”). It is so delicious that I’m carving so much right now. It has been months since I went back to my hometown 😦 . How can I describe the taste? Hmm, It’s salty, a lil bit sweet, melts in your mouth. Words can’t describe it’s taste..The Tofu Skin Soup can be cooked in 2 different ways. First is the Tofu Skin is boiled with soup and the second is the Tofu Skin is fried first then boiled with soup.

Today’s twist: write the scene from three different points of view: from the perspective of the man, then the woman, and finally the old woman.

It’s been a beautiful Sunday at Vile’s Family Park. Birds chirping, wind’s breezing and sun doesn’t strike too bad. It has been a perfect morning for family picnic. There can be seen several families gathering around, some couples jogging together, and an old woman sitting leisurely on the park bench.
