Lo Han Chai ala Daddy

Lo Han Chai ala Daddy
During one of our weekly meetings, a food caterer brought sample of dishes that might be part of our Christmas Party menu. One is the Lo Han Chai.

"The dish is traditionally enjoyed by Buddhist monks who are vegetarians, but it has also grown in popularity throughout the world as a common dish available as a vegetarian option in Chinese restaurants. The dish consists of various vegetables and other vegetarian ingredients (sometimes with the addition of seafood or eggs), which are cooked in soy sauce-based liquid with other seasonings until tender. The specific ingredients used vary greatly both inside and outside Asia." (source: Wikipedia)

Nature's Touch Monday: The Golden Grain

“A simple act of kindness
is the size of a rice grain that
can weigh as heavy as a mountain.”
- Feroz Bham

I remember that one of the symbol of my Alma Mater is the palay or we referred to as "Golden Grain". Actually, our year book is named after it.

Being humble is like a grain of rice that bows towards the ground as it gain weight.

Start the week with a smile!
