Thai-Style Egg Fried RIce

My dear bloggerians, I have a confession to make.

I did not creatively come up with that fried rice on my own. I found the recipe online. Click here for the best tutorial in video format. That demonstration is better than anything I could've written for you. Plus, it's really easy to make too. In fact, because I'm so bored with Nigerian dishes & the ingredients are really hard to come by, I have resigned to the mainstream grocery store to fulfill my nutrition needs. For me, it started becoming a real chore to drive for about 2hrs to get to an "ethnic" food store in either Toronto, Brampton, or Mississauga just to find pounded yam, or crayfish, or uyayak, or palm oil, e.t.c.

Anyhow, these days I eat whatever's handy...lots of pitas, wraps, salads, pot roast, indian cuisine, & so on. My new housemate is from Hong Kong, so recently we've been swapping cooking secrets & meals too :D He makes amazing things I tell ya! The man can cook. So I hope you're able to make this Thai-style egg fried rice, it was really delicious.


P.S: Goodluck

I didn't forget...

I didn't forget to blog. I've visited several blogs, even commented profusely on some of them but I haven't felt the push to post an entry of my own here. I don't know what it is. I've had interesting things happening in my life recently; so much to talk about but none of them seemed blog-worthy.
I bet those people who know me will beg to differ because some pretty serious things have happened. Anyway, I think those things are irrelevant right now.

So what do we talk about today? Well, today is a public holiday - Family Day, in Canada. The Canadian government had to create an excuse so that people will spend time with their loved ones. Well, i'm not complaining, I needed this break too. It's a good break from work, grad school stress, and the daily routine oF my mundane life.

Oh in other news, Valentine's day has come & gone. It was uneventful here but I hardly even noticed. As a newly single gal, I thought it would be devastating but so far it was OK. I was too busy with homework to get the blues. My X-man called to chat proposing that we get back together. Now why on earth will I do that?! being alone on valentines would persuade me into running back into his waiting hands. God forbid! I've had enough of stress with that emotional rollercoaster. I have better things to do with myself these days.

Anyhow, moving on. So to get things going here again, I will respond to the tags I got a few weeks ago and then I will go make myself some dinner. Tonight i'm thinking Thai-style fried rice with roast pork on the side. Mmm mmm....good!
