When sambal belacan means she loves me


See that container with the masking tape wrapped around its cover? It's chockfull of sambal belacan my mum made from one kilo of fresh red serrano chilies and flown more than 8000 miles in the good hands of our friend R. I redistributed it into smaller containers - one goes into the fridge and the rest go into the freezer for future use. I think I know what's for dinner tonight.

Eh? How did she get that through customs, is that even allowed? ;p

Yes! They only disallow raw plants, fruits and seeds - stuff that you can cultivate in the soil. Australia is more strict I think.
