Zee Ora-Green Salad
Easy peasy healthy =] I had a Kabocha pumpkin, an orange paprika, a spoonful of dried peach, a quarter of canned chick peas. Grill the pumpkin and paprika, sprinkle some salt and pepper. Lightly stir fry the chickpeas and onion, then baby spinach. Toss over grilled pumpkin and paprika. Pour lemon-olive oil-mustard-honey dressing OR stuff inside a sandwich. =D Yumminess!
The Mee Soa and Chicken Meat Ball Story
So easy to make: mesh minced chicken together with minced garlic, salt, pepper, minced shallot, then make into little balls. Stir fry the chick balls until golden, put away. Prepare the chicken stock with water, salt and pepper, parsley, shallot, until bubbly, then dump in the chick balls, then dump in the mee soa. Serve! Sprinkle with red onion crisps and chilli flakes. YUM!

…and make room for instant laksa!
Our friends Serene Tan and Abel Sim hooked us up with a few packs of their favorite Singaporean brand…
And I cannot speak highly enough of it! The soup packed such incredible flavor!! I just cannot believe you can get such taste out of freeze-dried and powdered foods. Amazing!!
Now when friends ask me if I want anything from Singapore, I know what my answer will be!
That’s a tough one. First off, I want to write a disclaimer saying that if you’re a teenager, you should not listen to anything I say. I would hate...
