As winter creeps its way in, chilly weather forced my runny nose and sore throat scrambling for refuge. Luckily, this comfort food didn’t take long to make, as it was paired with homemade pork ball, seasoned with simple ingredients like soy sauce, sesame oil and pepper. Don’t forget the topping: spring onion, fried shallot, century egg and fried wonton wrappers. They all screamed with joy, adding fun and excitement. I just need my spoon to dig in. Sickness was gone as I made my way to the bottom of the bowl. I soon realized that I needed another one…
