“Here’s to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They’re not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can’t do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.” – Apple Inc.
I found this phrase by Dr. Joseph Riggio as a remarkably moving….
He said: ” The first and most important thing that you can do is to reshape the story that we are all living. We first have to shape the story that we love ourselves until you know who you are. You can’t know what’s possible for the world and you’ll sacrifice the future of our children, and your children’s children simply because you didn’t know what story says.”
What a Genius..? Do I ever think of the kind of stories that are going on in my life now? Whose story am I living currently?
It takes me back to my childhood, sat on my daddy’s lap listening all the stories my mummy & daddy told me. These stories have cemented and shape my life into who I am now. They often come up to surface each time I am faced by difficult situations..Therefore I am now looking upon my children – what kind of story should I tell them? Will these stories shape their future?
In times of trouble.. there are lots of voices repeating in my head. Do they relate to the stories I’ve listened before? Is that my true voice or gut instinct that tries to give clues to me as to where I should go next? How will I know which one I must listen to..? Do I have courage to make that decision..? – I believe we all are given the ability to know what is best for us, but… do we recognise it? Have we trust in our own gut instinct..?

I’d like to thank you both Ann, my dear friends who make me write this recipe for you. Often I prepare all thein advance, so whenever I’m ready to eat, I just bang them all in the work… mix, mix… and wallah… it’s done in minutes!
The ingredients I describe in this recipe is based on the picture shown (exactly what I did to my best recollection..) – but the beauty of this recipe is that you can throw in literary any vegetables/ meat/ chicken/ prawn you fancy. You just need to adjust the cut & size of whatever ingredients you put in, so they all will cook together in the same time. No rules.. just mix and taste.
- 2 packets of instant noodle – boil with plenty water (read the packet instruction for timing), then drain & set aside. Don’t forget to fork in every so often to make sure they don’t stick together. Add a little oil if you like.
- 2 pc of – cut into thin slices
- 100 gr of bean sprouts
- 1 small onion slice thinly
- 1 small carrots – cut into thin strips
- 100 gr of shredded cabbage
- 10 pc of whole (you can use 2 of ground white pepper instead)
- 2 cloves of garlic
- 10 pc of ‘ebi’ (dried shrimp) can be purchased at the Asian store
- cooking oil (approx 3 tbsp)
- 3 tbsp soy-sauce
- 2 tbsp ‘kecap manis’ (Indonesian sweet soy-sauce) – you may substitute this with plum sauce or sweet chillie sauce
Serves: 3 – 4 people - This enough for our family lunch ( 2 adults & 2 children)
Start by heating up the oil in the wok, then soften the onion, put in the mixed ground ingredients, keep mixing till the aroma rises, then throw in chicken, carrots & cabbage, keep mixing until they are cooked.
Put in wet ingredients (soy-sauces), then put in noodle, bean sprout, mix well. Adjust to your taste if you need to put in more soy sauce, just do.. The dish is cooked when the steam starts to rise in the middle of the wok. Taste & adjust before serve.
Hope you can follow this recipe. Let me know your feed back!
