Poking tool?

Probably Daiso?
Or John Little's household section?

I know I'm in love with the household items at Tangs. But normally before I even get to touch anything, either hubs or the kids would be calling me outta there! :cry:

Yeah, IMM Daiso is huge!

BPP is smaller. Very tight aisle space too. If I bring my twin jogger/buggy, cannot go in.

Was looking out for CNY goodies at this shop at Bt Timah when we had dinner near there yesterday. Picked up a nice golden tin containing love letters and realized they were from Block 15, Woodlands Terrace. The Bakers' Oven Almond Sugee cookies looked nice, also from same place.

So Jennifer if you dowan to go all the way to Woodlands Terrace without hubby or if you don't plan to buy so many items, can consider getting some knick knacks at this shop.

Remember the makan plc I told u about along Cheong Chin Nam? This shop is at the other end where New Garo and Dominos Pizza is.

I didn't get to buy anything because they were all too hungry to wait for me to browse. :P

I took reference from here. Had a difficult time scoring the skin.

I forgot to blanch in hot water, went ahead to season with rock salt (coarse salt) and white pepper (1 tsp each), kept in the fridge with a cling wrap.

This morning, I browned skin down first using my WMF pot w/o adding oil, then brown the other sides. I used a kitchen paper to wipe the oil during the browning.

The oven is preheated at 200 deg C for 20 mins. Put the browned pork belly (skin side up) on the roasting pan rack.

After 40mins, wipe the skin with a kitchen paper.

With 15 mins left, brush with some rice vinegar and up the temperature to 220 deg C.

Rest the roast pork for 30mins b4 cutting.

i've tried looking for that tool too. can't seem to find it anywhere. my ingenious guys at home came up with many ideas, but "stabbing" with steak knife worked really well! :laugh: also work that bicep muscles really well too. :razz:

jennifer, i did not blanch, nor brown. lazy la. however, after salting the skin, must use kitchen paper to absorb the moisture from the skin which the salt has brought out. i've repeated this process (salt, wipe, salt, wipe) for almost 1 hour before salting the whole slab and sending into the oven.

no cackling and popping sound but skin turned out wonderfully crispy!

there was oozing sounds from mine.

Btw, what do u do with the oil? I just checked, think there is 1/2 bowl of oil. Like too waste to throw away. Thinking of using it to fry glutinous rice, can do?
