Egg Soup with Broccoli & Kani

What do I have for today? It's my second year celebrating women's day here in Vietnam, which I don't usually celebrate back home. Today all the ladies in the office had a free lunch at my favorite Cafe called KITA. Our managing director paid for our pretty pricey and generous meal. Then at night I had dinner at Geisha with bunch of close girl friends. I don't know exactly the origin how our world initiate the celebration of women's day but regardless of history, it's worth celebrating!

The world is evolving and changing very fast along with our women today. More and more female creatures turn to be a successful monster or giant Godzilla in the modern universe. They learned to be tougher and better than most men as they rise from the ranks of corporate ladder, politics, arts, entertainment and business. Women are dominating more male territories so the male species are slowly threatened by the rapid growth of female dominance. I would like to cite myself as an example as a strong and empowered woman. My desire and dreams are driven by my ambition and ability to make things happen according to my own design and not dictated by trends or influence of peers. I am decisive and passionate that's why most men are often intimidated to me. I guess they shouldn't. You know why? At the end of the day the difference between men and women is-- we are softer hearted. I couldn't agree less to that. There's more to learn about women and they are limitless to be discussed in one post. So to wrap this post up, I'd like to leave you guys a light soup recipe that most women would definitely like.



• Eggs
• Chicken Stock
• Kani strands
• Broccoli
• Milk
• Cornstarch
• Onions
• Salt & Pepper
• Butter (of course)


Heat pan with butter in medium temperature then saute onions. Add kani strands then add salt and pepper. Beat the eggs and set aside. Add the chicken stock to the sauteed onions and kani. Bring to boil then add milk and egg. Dissolve little amount of cornstarch with water then add to the mixture. Lastly add broccoli then boil it again then put off the heat and serve it with any bread. Mine I served it with Pandan sliced loaf bread.

Happy Women's Day! :-)

big hug,

Happy Women's Day to you too, JOY :)

Thanks for greeting MIchael. I must say, you also have a big chance meeting him since you're in UK already. And I am also jealous when you told me that you will meet Nigella the day we spoke on the phone when I was in London...

I would like to have this soup plus toasted bread with BUTTER! I'm sure you put butter on your pandan bread. I haven't eaten pandan bread yet!

Happy International Women's Day, Artist Chef!
