For breakfast this morning, I cooked 'Fried Rice'. Hubby was going to outstation to send the Company's Halal Chicken to the 'Rainforest Restaurant'. He needed to eat something heavy to start off the day.
As usual, I always cooked simple and quick :) Then we have breakfast together around 920am before the rest of the children (those who are having off days) woke up.
Today I sliced the ingredients instead of grounding them.
Saute half sliced large onion and one sliced red chilli. Then I add a packet of this Mee Sedap packet ingredient to it. Stir a minute or two before adding my left over rice in the rice cooker.
Fry and stir well. Add some salt and ajinomoto to taste.
There! My simple Fried Rice for breakfast. We ate this with a bowl of left over vegetable soup and some salted fish!
Hubby dislike to see us throwing good food away. He is very particular when we eat in the plate we must finish whatever we dished out from the pot. So even now when all my children are grown up, when we eat at the table, they will not waste food which are on their plates!
These are the Mee Sedap packet ingredients. My children likes to eat Mee Sedap but did not want to add the packet which contains the 'Bawang Goreng' (fried onions). So what I did was, put them in one place and when making fried rice or soup I will add a packet or two to the dish. You can even add a packet or two if you are frying noodles.

I hope you don't throw yours away!
Oh, on another note, I have just read today's papers. One interesting topic catches my eyes, '1M'SIA RETIREMENT SAVINGS SCHEME NOW OPEN TO HOUSEWIVES'.
- The Borneo Post - KUALA LUMPUR -
'The 1 malaysia Retirement Savings Scheme has been opened to housewives, and they can deposit as little as RM50 a month, the Employees Provident Fund (EPF) announced yesterday.
EPF Chief Executive Officer Tan Sri Azlan Zainol said in a statement that just like the self-employed contributors of the scheme, housewives could also opt to deposit a minimum of RM50 of a maximum of RM5,000 when they could afford to.
The scheme, which was launched in January, enables contributors to receive annual dividends declared by the EPF, in addition to a 5% contribution from the government subject to a maximum of RM60 per year over 5 years from this year. It has so far attracted 14,786 individuals who have contributed a total of RM13.2 million.
The scheme is designed to provide individuals without a fixed monthly income with a degree of financial security in their old age. The scheme is becoming popular with taxi drivers, fishermen, farmers, hawkers, petty traders, artistes and freelancers such as disc jockeys, said Azlan. Those interested to apply for the scheme can fill the KWSP 16G (1M) Form which is available at any EPF branch nationwide or can be downloaded from the myEPF website at www.kwsp.gov.my.
The forms are to be returned at any EPF branch or by mail. However, individuals who are not EPF members have to register with the EPF first by completing the KWSP 3 Form and submitting it to the EPF before applying for the scheme. Existing EPF members, who turned self-employed, are also eligible and may opt for this new scheme.
Savings for the scheme can be deposited via cash or cheque using the KWSP6A(2) Form at any EPF Payment Counter nationwide and withdrawals are governed by the present EPF withdrawal procedures and conditions.
Further information can be obtained by visiting the nearest EPF branch or EPF Call Center at 03-8922 6000 or the EPF website. - Bernama.
I found out that housewives can contribute until the age of 75!
Now, how interesting can that be?
