Ironic to my Cantonese genes, I don't take liking to soupy dishes. And that means I do not fancy having steamboat.
(for all 'em ang moh's readers i have out there)
Better known as Hot Pot, this East Asian *stew* consist of a simmering metal pot of stock at the center of the dining table. While the pot is kept simmering, ingredients are placed into the pot and are cooked at the table. (yes i copied this from Wiki)
Also, the probability of you getting a burnt tongue when eating steamboat is 100 to 1. (that, I added in myself)
I'm not a fan of Hot Pot for 3 simple reasons

Hot Pot meals are often eaten during winter to keep the body warm.
See the problem?

Hot, Winter and Warm.
Malaysia does NOT have winter, is extremely HOT and we already feel Warm.
Why would anyone in their right mind ,want to feel warmer that we already are?
It's like telling a fat person to be fatter.
Nevertheless, what I do enjoy about steamboat sessions is the fellowship with the family.
Soaking up in the soup you may call it.
We have conversations like:
*Hoi, MANA SOS?!?!?!*
*ahahahah Malaysia politicians are so stupid*
*I said, bring the sauce NOW*
*did you hear about my neighbor and his mistress?*
*aahhaah Malaysian politicians are so stupid AGAIN*
Conversations are captioned by me.
No we don't bitch about Malaysian politicians over dinner.
Or do we?
*jeng jeng jeng*
