From there to here…

Keropok sotong 1

Keropok sotong 2

…and these giant dried chilies – each of them almost 12 inches long…

Giant dried chilies

I understand that despite the size, they are not hot at all. Oh me oh my! Now, who says that size does matter? LOL!!!

Other than these that came in this parcel via poslaju

Special delivery

…there was also this little container labelled “lemon pepper”…

Lemon pepper

I understand that it actually came from quaypocooks and the sender has generously spared me a bit to try. I’ve been told to use it to marinate meat or fish for grilling. It certainly smells great and I bet it’s going to be very delicious. I think I’ll just wait till my daughter comes home…

By the way, can anybody guess who has so kindly sent me all this stuff? If you can give me the correct answer, I’ll post to you one giant chili. Muahahahahahaha!!!

STOP PRESS:
