Probably why I didn't become an accountant...

The abacus was used as the calculator of yesteryear. My late Ah Kong himself used one at his now-defunct provision shop. But moo? I rather eat it. Moohahaha.

These nuggets of chewy goodness stir fried with fragrant mix of chopped garlic, chai poh, spring onions, hae bee and minced pork were irresistibly scrumptious and homely. Think of them as Chinese yam gnocchi. The chilli paste on the side tasted fresh and added heat. $3.50 for the above plate.

Hey actually, my biology/physiology lecturers should have described the shape of a red blood cell as one of these abacus seeds! LOL. Sorry lah. Can't help it- studied 7 years of life sciences. RBC. RBC. RBC. :p
