Shrimp stink

I decided to roast some chicken drumsticks marinated in shrimp paste. Big mistake.

The whole apartment stinks to high heaven. I'm worried the stink has probably leached into the corridor and might soon be pissing off my neighbours. I hope they don't come knocking on my door.

 I now recall my German friend complaining about the smell of shrimp paste coming into her apartment from her Asian neighbours. I've become that neighbour.

God damn Asians on our floor doing some fermented cabbage thing. They have goned. It would be no problem if they just turned on their exhaust fans. We got our revenge with the stink of pork chops cooked on the stove in a frypan.

Personally, I'd much rather the smell of fried pork chops than fermented cabbage.
