Stir-fry eggs with cloud ears and onions


This is a very simple and homely dish which I tasted during my recent trip to Beijing.  It was done without onions but I added in some to enhance the taste.  This was well received as it was light and refreshing with the added crunch from the cloud ears and not so oily as the other dishes which we had.

  1. Lightly beat up the eggs and add in some salt and pepper.
  2. Heat up some oil in a wok, stir-fry the onions for a while, dish out.

Traditional Mixed Nuts Mooncake ~ 2013

Traditional Mixed Nuts Mooncake was my dad's perennial favourite.  At that time I couldn't understand why this festive traditional mooncake was most enjoyed by the older folks.  But nowadays, I too have slowly acquired the taste for this sweet, salty and nutty variety.  These cakes are best cut in  small wedges, savoured by small delicate bites and not by the mouthfuls, and they are best enjoyed with a pot of hot Chinese tea.
