Eh, pete, why your vegetarian recipe got onion and garlic wan? Anyway, i dun like brocoli. I used to think they are little alien monsters from outer space when my mom tried to sneak them into my porridge when i was younger. LMAO.

Cleff : This site was initially intended for my 'Ang Moh' Vegetarian group. Most of them are vegan because of health and out of love for animals. Yes, most chinese vegetarian do not eat onion and garlic because they have stimulating effect. Ha Ha. Anyway you can replace brocoli with couliflower(white alien monsters) or snow peas(alien spacecraft) or carrot or capsicum. LOL

Angmoh are weird... u know, they feel bad eating animals, but they dun feel bad wearing those animal. :-S

Hi, could u pl advise me which brand of Chinese wine to buy? Thanks !

Catherine, there are many imitation brands. The original ones are pricer than the imitation ones. The original ones have two iron bridge (looks rather like Eiffel tower) printed on the cap. Imitation ones do not have this printed on the cap.
