ROAST PIG

This CNY my mom butchered 2 roast pigs. It seems that we have a roast pig for EVERY OCCASION. Be it a marriage, a birthday, CNY, even XMAS....alamak. I'm not really a fan of it actually. Somehow the image of people squatting around while they watch my mom slicing it up and shouting out the parts/spare parts whatever that they want is really enticing. And amusing. Some people quietly munching on the crispy roast skin. Some people happily tarpau-ing to make 'chap choy' for the day after. If you think about it, every part of the pig is made edible by the Chinese. Ears, kidneys, liver, intestines...just about every 'spare part' available. My favourite part is the ears......What's yours?
