I remember my father would also bring terubok and the females with lots of roe in them. Black pomfret also gave us a lot of fish roe. But the best are from mackerel or ma kah...and we often only had the fish eggs which could be bought separately in those days for 1 or 2 dollars only.
AT that time we have not heard of caviar of course.
this trip to Kuching gave me an extra new perception. New fish and new types of marketing strategy in selling of the fresh fish roe!!
Now it is not advisable for me to enjoy these fish roe any more...to be health-conscious one must avoid lots of food...
But it is good to remember the old days and walk down memory lane with siblings !!
|Satok Road Market - which will be moved across the bridge soon.....has this special fish with its stomach opened up to show its roe...|
