Whenever I feel my body is heaty, I’ll either drink lots of Chinese herbal drink or make myself Salted Egg Minced Meat Porridge. Honestly, it does help in terms of cooling the heat, and secondly it’s always delicious. After all, ingredients are easy to find and it’s always cheap to make for 2 persons at home. Ingredients 1 cup of rice 4-5 cups of water 1 salted egg 200 to 250 gram of minced meat Steps Briefly rinse the rice with running water. Boil 4 cups of water in high flame. Then put in the rice in the boil water, and boil. Once rice turn thicker, briefly stir so that it will not get stick at the pot Before dish out, add in salted egg. Salted egg has to be mashed into small pieces. Add in minced meat. Tips – if you like the meat to be a bit flavoury, you can add salt and pepper to taste or a dish of sesame oil. However, I leave it as it is, I like the taste as it is. Once cooked, dish out and garnish with spring onions or ginger slice.

Ingredients are simple… for 2 persons at home; you can just follow the ratio below. 2 chicken thighs, chopped. 1 medium capsicum, 1 medium tomato, 6 red chili padi (if you can’t take too spicy food, reduce the chili). Chop tomato in wedge form, random cut the capsicum and also use the chopper slightly press on the chili. Thi

And, that will turn out to be most of us normally pick up too. Or, perhaps I was just finding sometime to settle down some thoughts in my mind, before I could start writing again or move on with whatever plans in mind. Since settled down here, I have not been honestly adventurous enough to explore more food in the island. Not that am finding excuse but honestly, I am so lost that I do not know how to manage my own time to certain extend. I could barely split myself into this and that. When am too free, I have all the time in the world, but my mind isn’t functioning. In fact, what’s going on, uh? Actually I have plenty of ideas in my mind and I wish I have the capability to do it… things like cook all the food that I’ve been reading from the web, invite friends and family to my small hut for a simple gathering, reading some books, etc… bu
