more food, because I started cooking. so this soy sauce chicken recipe of mine, which my grandma taught me, but I think I amped it up a notch unhealthy. if it were healthy in the first place...

4-6piece chicken thigh, cut up into bite size pieces
2 slices of ginger
3 small shallots, diced
3 cloves garlic, diced
3 tablespoons light soy sauce
1.5 tablespoons dark soy sauce
1 teaspoon or tablespoon sugar (I am very liberal. I love my food with sugar in it ._.)
1 tablespoon oyster sauce (optional? I think my lots of sugar! compensated for it)
1 tablespoon tapioca starch
2-3 tablespoons water (or however much you need)
cooking wine
pot with lid

1. mix soy sauces, sugar, oyster sauce, a little bit of water, in a bowl (the chicken will exude water when it's being cooked).
2. heat oil, fry ginger until golden brown, add garlic and shallots and fry till you smell it, add chicken and stir fry until chicken is almost cooked (mostly white on the outside, little pink)
3. add the soy sauce, suger, oyster sauce mix. stir well.
4. using the same bowl, dissolve tapioca starch in some water and add to chicken. stir well
5. add a dash of chinese cooking wine and cover for a couple of minutes.

I also dumped a couple of hard-boiled eggs into the pot after I added everything. After chicken is done I used the sauce to cook the eggs more. UGH TASTES LIKE HOME COOKED FOOD AND I AM HAPPY \O/


The coffee cup that has cooled down
a little is like a merry-go-round
It mimics our inertia

Let's kiss one more time, and
expose your secret
Beyond your tongue and mine,
there's the truth...

kiss twice, kiss me deadly,
