What's cookin'? - Ep 4


I was nursing two sickbirds at home earlier this week, and guess what I made for them?

Of course not Black Pepper Beef Steak. What else do you serve to sick people, other than Chicken Porridge?

This entry is dedicated to guys out there. If you refused to learn to cook, because at the back of your mind, you know you are going to be married to an awesome lady who cooks for you, please at least learn how to make porridge.

Your future wife is human being, and one day she's gonna catch some flu virus somewhere and fall sick, so please don't ask her to cook for you, and don't simply go 'tapau' food for both of you.

Now, you can settle for some plain porridge, but us girls won't be too impress. *Yeah women are hard to please* I'm gonna show you how to make 'Chicken Porridge with The Works'. Or more like, TELL you.

You need: rice, anchovies, telur masin, daun bawang, ginger, bawang goreng, chicken breast, carrot, oyster sauce, chicken stock/cube, soy sauce, salt, black pepper 


1. Wash half cup of rice
2. Boil 6 cups of water in a large pot
3. Add rice and thinly sliced ginger to the boiling water
4. Add carrot, chicken cuts and chicken stock/cube
5. Last but not least, add oyster sauce, soy sauce, salt and pepper to taste *Don't ask me why I put oyster sauce, I'm just a big fan*

While waiting for the rice to turn to porridge (nasi menjadi bubur), boil one telur masin, and fry anchovies to your liking. I like it super crispy when it comes to having it with porridge.

Garnish with daun bawang and bawang goreng.

The works.

 Boy, was it yummy!


As token of appreciation for being a good nurse, the now-healthy sickbirds brought home IKEA meatballs for me. How nice. It even came with a 'Thank You' note.

'Dear Nurse, TQ for taking care of us. May the balls satisfy u!'

I thought they have to-go box, but well they don't. Instead, they ask you to purchase the RM 7 plastic container for you to put the food in. These people, very clever one. Eyes see $$$$ only.

Salivating yet? Hi hi hi
