What makes your day?
For me, it can be the few simplest of things on Earth such as, kisses and cuddles from the boys or simply a message on the phone from a long lost friend just to say Hello. 2 months ago, on my birthday to be exact, it came in the form of an email from Bee, inviting me to do a guest post on her very well known and established food blog, Rasa Malaysia.
Bee Yinn Low, or affectionately known as Bee is a professional recipe developer specializing in Asian recipes. Bee’s first cookbook “Easy Chinese Recipes” was just released and you can now pre-order the book from Amazon. As a professional recipe developer, Bee works with brands such as Mizkan America, WorldFoods and INSING.com just to name a few.
Hainanese Chicken Rice was one of the 2 suggestions i suggested to Bee because i’ve been meaning to post a couple of Hainanese recipes that are very dear to me for the longest of time. Fortunately, for me that is, Bee has not featured this popular dish on her blog, yet. 2 emails later, violaaaaaa….. Hainanese Chicken Rice for ya!
Apart from a bowl of kick-ass rice, i must say, the soup plays a crucial part to my meal to make my whole dining experience a satisfying one. If you haven’t noticed, i have actually used chicken stock (homemade) to poach the chicken. Firstly, it is to make the chicken tastier and secondly, for a huge bowl of unforgettable soup. Throw in a handful of fish balls or meat balls and i guarantee you will end your meal with a smiling face. :)
For more photos and recipe, please hop over to my post on Rasa Malaysia. While you are there, don’t forget to check out Bee’s lovely blog… if you haven’t already.
