mr lim siong guan is, of course, quite well known in singapore. my friend introduced him with the usual accolades – superman, yoda, change crusader… 🙂

in fact, the straits times report in the link above covered pretty well anecdotes about mr lim & about the book “wining with honour” which he co-wrote with his daughter….

today LSG talking mostly about ideas from his book “winning with honour” about branding, trust, difference between like & love, respect & honour, self actualisation & transcendence etc..

i had 2 kg of belly pork in crockpot cold on low setting for about 6hrs+, meat thermometer set at 90degC.

marinade was good & flavourful. after checking the texture was what i wanted, placed pork in double ziploc bag in chiller overnight. drained the stock & kept in fridge overnight.
