Opening the fridge, I saw the duck rice sauce sitting in its carrier, the Malay styled chicken in its plastic bag and the ikan bilis (anchovies) in another bag, I decided that I want to used it all.

I added pork to the dish as well because I had thawed the meat for far too long, leaving it in the cooler, and I did not want it to go bad.

I then decided that having such a brown and dull color as a meal was boring. So I dig out any sort of colored vegetable that I had in the fridge and voila! Carrot and spring onion was added to the dish.
