From Kenneth Oh ( the one in light blue floral shirt below):-

” Thanks  Teong Seng and Hock Eng for organising our get-together, Sing Hoong for driving us there and the birthday touch foe HE ( Hock Eng ) with a nice mango cheese cake, Ban Bee for also driving us and extending our mainland visit with a tour of ECO World’s show units, Hong San for your kind generosity in treating us all this sumptuous lunch, and Poh Weng and Saw Chin for opening their house for those of us who stayed on for the best home toasted home-brewed coffee, best home-grown star fruit and custard apple and other delightful treats. It was an enjoyable day out and I’m sure everyone’s happy with the warm fellowship. May the Birthday joy stay aglow and linger on our dear Taikor and stay healthy and safe, all of us.

Pardon me, Soo Peng ( blogger ), I knew at the back of my mind I’ve missed something … of course we can’t miss out that expensive RM15k (?!) camera … oops the cameraman too. Thx for lugging it along and taking our handsome 66+ yr young faces ( when looking back in the years to come). ”

Thank you the kind narration and comments.

Fresh Fishes for Food   Leave a comment


Fresh Fishes for Food

Fresh Fishes for a seafood dinner. Recent scare in Penang, some food vendors are using Pufferfish in a fried fillet form. If not prepared properly, the fresh fillet is more poisonous than cyanide.

SP Lim

Extracted from The Straits Times Press dated 3 July, 2017:-

“PETALING JAYA (THE STAR/ASIA NEWS NETWORK) – Unscrupulous fishmongers and fishing trawler operators are taking advantage of the escalating fish prices to push pufferfish fillet into the market.

Currently, they are taken back to shore by the hundreds of kilogrammes to be sold as “crystal fish“, after they are filleted.

In Penang, Kedah and Perak, pufferfish fillet are used by seafood porridge and bee hoon soup hawkers as “fried fish meat”.

The fillet is also widely used as a component of appetisers in Chinese wedding banquets at hotels and restaurants, particularly in Penang.

A source said pufferfish fillet could be half the price of alternatives.

“Hawkers and restaurant owners used to use Spanish mackerel (tenggiri) and grouper fillet, but their prices have risen tremendously over the last two years,” said the source yesterday.”

“By turning to pufferfish fillet, hawkers and restaurant owners are able to reduce their costs by half,” said the source, who added that fillet, normally sold in frozen form, were now prevalent at wet markets in the northern states.

The danger here is that buyers, such as housewives and others who would not suspect any seafood would be toxic, are completely unaware.

“The housewives are not told that the fillet are made from pufferfish. Instead, fishmongers say it is a kind of edible fish, with some calling it ‘crystal fish’,” the source added.

A Penang fishmonger operating in the Batu Lanchang market said the fillet was a hot item as it was delicious when fried.

“We dare not tell them it is from pufferfish. People are sceptical of eating pufferfish as it is known to be poisonous,” said the seller who believed that pufferfish was edible if the toxin was removed.

“I have been selling this for the past few months, and nobody has gotten sick or died,” he said. “Therefore, I think it’s safe to eat.”  ”

I cannot trace the original article from The Star.

From Wikipedia:-

he Tetraodontidae are a family of primarily marine and estuarine fish of the order Tetraodontiformes. The family includes many familiar species, which are variously called pufferfishpuffersballoonfishblowfishbubblefishglobefishswellfishtoadfishtoadieshoney toadssugar toads, and sea squabThey are morphologically similar to the closely related porcupinefish, which have large external spines (unlike the thinner, hidden spines of the Tetraodontidae, which are only visible when the fish has puffed up). The scientific name refers to the four large teeth, fused into an upper and lower plate, which are used for crushing the shells of crustaceans and mollusks, their natural prey.

The majority of pufferfish species are toxic and some are among the most poisonous vertebrates in the world. In certain species, the internal organs, such as liver, and sometimes their skin, contain tetrodotoxin and are highly toxic to most animals when eaten; nevertheless, the meat of some species is considered a delicacy in Japan (as 河豚, pronounced as fugu), Korea(as 복 bok or 복어 bogeo), and China (as 河豚 hétún) when prepared by specially trained chefs who know which part is safe to eat and in what quantity. Other pufferfish species with nontoxic flesh, such as the northern pufferSphoeroides maculatus, of Chesapeake Bay are considered a delicacy elsewhere.
