India + Steam Boat = Indian Steam Boat?

Hello everyone!

I guess this must be a short post, coz Mom is busy getting ready for her trip to India...*sigh* She was scheduled to fly there tomorrow for her work. Something about 'training'...I wonder if she will get to go for obedience tests after her training! Anyways, she wiill be away for a week, which means I won't be around to post or to view other friends' bloggies because there's no one to help me do it...=( I sure am going to miss her too...she keeps telling me that I must be a good boy and listen to Gramma and Grampa while she's away. Hope she will be back really soon and get me some pressies! *grins*

Okay, back to my other subject...Mom, Aunty Vivian, Gramma and Grampa went back to their hometown yesterday to have this thing called 'Steam Boat'. From what Mom told me,it sounds delicious! Basically, it's a big pot(can be any kind of pot) filled with clear broth or water. Once it is boiling, delicious meats and veggies are put in to cook. When the stuff is cooked, they take out only the meats and veggies to eat, complemented with some spicy chilli sauce and gravy. The broth usually will become a delicious yummy soup once everyone is finished, because the yummy juices from the meats and veggies will be incorporated into the broth...really really yummy according to Mom!

Sad to say, I wasn't brought along....*pouts* So is Kenji...*sigh* Mom says there will be many kids around that might stress me and Kenji a lot, so she doesn't want to bring me along,especially when she won't be around so much to supervise (coz she will be helping out with the preparations and stuff). And so...we were left home for a few hours. =( Still, Mom left us some chewies and stuffies and toys to amuse ourselves with while they're gone,so it's not so bad.

Here are some photos that Mom managed to take of the steam boat...there weren't many coz she was so busy stuffing herself silly with food:

Some of the yummy fishballs to put in the soup...

And more food to go in the pot!

This is a photo Mom took of the whole table filled with her aunts, uncles and grandparents in her hometown. As you can see, the table is SOOOO long, it's like neverending! o.O" There's food everywhere...*licks lips* So sad that I missed all those yummy food! =(

And so, here ends my post for the week. I guess it's not that 'short' as I thought it would be...LOL! Hope to catch up with you all soon when Mom gets back! Have a great week!

That steam boat gathering looked like great fun and wonderful food; I can understand why you and Kenji were drooling at its thought. Maybe Mom can let you take something that has her scent on it to Gramma's so you won't miss her so much.

Oh, Scottie, all that food looks delicious! I'm so sad that you didn't get to eat some of it! I like my raw food and my doggie treats just fine, but I love human food even better! I'm convinced that they save all the best stuff for themselves. Don't you think so too?
