Chicken Rice Without Chicken

I read about this recent quote:

“A general election without Low Thia Kiang is a plate of chicken rice without the chicken.”

This quote reminded me of my childhood days.

Then I used to buy chicken rice without chicken… because very poor ma, no money to buy chicken; 20–30 cents a package of fragrant rice was enough to fill 3 stomachs (me, my sis and mum) with simple mum-cooked vegetable dishes.

Actually you can enjoy a yummy meal of chicken rice and other dishes without the chicken. Of course you must know how to cook the chicken rice and make it fragrant. 🍚

So Low Thia Kiang has decided to become the fragrant chicken rice. Singaporeans can now eat this rice (not necessary must have the chicken) and yet can have a delicious meal. 😜


SG United, SG Together

Now that GE2020 was fought, the results were out. Let us come back together as United Singaporeans regardless of which political parties you supported.

In the course of the campaigning, hurtful words were said, and muds slung. Now that it is over, let us forgive one another and unite behind the new government to fight another battle and win this Covid19 fight over the next five years.

Let us remember to work hard, demonstrate humility and love to each other as we move forward in this difficult time as one united people regardless of race, language and religion.

Be happy, take care and stay safe. Majulah Singapura 💪💪💪
