Oyster Sauce Fried Rice With Cabbage & Prawns

The crazy, busy week is finally over. I can finally take a short breather and look forward to the next few weeks to come.

The best thing is this – one can finally start to see Christmas decorations in shopping malls and along the streets; Christmas carols are being played in megastores and the streets are starting to look more inviting, more festive and more relaxed. I always look forward to this time of the year because I can start to wind down, go for a short break, get away from work, stop thinking about deadlines for a while and spend more time with my family as well as take some time out for myself.

So, there are some weekends with simpler recipes chosen so that I can rest my mind and soul. This oyster sauce fried rice recipe is very easy to make with simple yet delicious ingredients. It is a very healthy meal to have too, given that it is a all-in-one rice pot with vegetables and the necessary proteins for both the young and old.
