蛋蛋 (旦旦 )Post

This is 蛋 蛋/旦旦 (aka egg or telur) post.. 旦 is close relative of 王八旦, 混旦 and 臭鸡旦. Today I will torture the 旦旦 by eating them...

I'm conducting a wu liao survey on how you eat torture your half-boiled eggs...
1. Slurp the egg white first and eat the yolk later (save the best for the last)?
2. Or sapu the egg yolk first?
3. Or beat & mix the egg yolk together with the egg white prior to makan?
4. Or mix it with soy sauce?
5. Or sprinkle a dash of pepper?
6. Or eat the half boiled egg together with toasted bread?
7. Or... u don't eat half-boiled eggs cos scared of Salmonella infection?

I cannot resist but to giggle each time I see this modified Mother Goose Nursery Rhymes...
Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall,
Humpty Dumpty had a great fall,
All the king's horses and all the king's men,
Cannot put Humpty Dumpty back again.
Had scrambled eggs for breakfast again !!!

i love eggs, but found out they make me cough. not easy to find out, cos sometimes cough sometimes don't. so deducing it from all the usual suspects was quite a toughie, but i found out eventually! i still eat them though. but not so much.

Love half boiled eggs, especially from the mamak's. Dunno why, but somehow when you don't have to boil them yourself, they taste better!!

Tried a new way the last time I was back in Malaysia, introduced by angchai:
Break the eggs over hot (warm) Roti Canai, and eat them together (with see yau, pepper, and the kuah)!! EXTRA YUMM!! Even the Cocka tried it too!

Chen said...

minum telur ah?
half-boiled eggs is much much nicer than hard-boiled eggs hoh? :P

i tot drinking raw eggs (mix with something else) will made u more "powderful"?
Yes? No? :P

mmmm.... interesting findings..
just wondering how u manage to find it out initially? ;)

I know there are people who are allergy to eggs..

I either slurp the egg white first or mix the white and yolk together then eat it. But whichever option, soy sauce and pepper is a MUST. Hehe.

Psst! Is it true that eating half-boiled eggs will get Salmonella infection? Don't scare me leh...

sengkor said...

_butt said...

hahaha! Usually I put soy sauce, slurp the egg white slowly until the yolk part.. yeah, save the best for last as they say.. :D

mistipurple said...

i thought it was some medicine that the doc coincidentally prescribed. he told me that's not one of the side effects. so i watched, then also puzzled cos sometimes cough continuous, then stop for few days, then start again. so i watched what i ate.

since i have been eating eggs like forever since young, it was hard to suspect the innocent egg!
somehow, luckily one day i thought, "can't be the egg!", then i watched the effects. VOILA!! the culprit; the egg!
but i still eat abit lah, only cannot continuously eg. 3-4 days, then i will start coughing early morning at break of dawn, then if don't break the cycle, it will carry on intermittently throughout the day. scary. lol.

mistipurple said...

eh? how come everybody like the yoke part huh? i prefer mixing them. yoke too yokey? lol

Chen said...

Another one who save the best for the last :D
I found out majority ppl here eat half boiled eggs this way hoh? :)

Are u allergy to products with eggs such as cakes, egg rolls, biscuits, French toast bla bla bla?
I presume nope? :P

Yoke more delicious mah..
Higher cholesterol mah…
U lupa liao meh high cholesterol food taste nicer?

lynnx01 said...

Mine is the combination of both
3. Or beat & mix the egg yolk together with the eat white prior to makan?
4. Or mix it with soy sauce?

When I was in kindergarten, my dad always made us take one soft boiled egg for breakfast. He says that would make us smart. Haha!

Pink Winnie said...

my answer- 4 n 3.. yummy...

Chen said...

Hehhe... I didn't realise my typo error earlier on... type eat instead of egg. I guess u didn't notice it too? ;)

Egg is indeed nutritious :)

pink winnie,
soy sauce is a must when I eat half boiled egg.. or else tak sedap :D

hehehe.. u notice hoh the relative statement. Wonder how many members are there in the 旦 family :D

Salmonella tu... bad organism with nice name. Wonder if anyone name their child as Salmonella or not? Shigella is another nice germ name :D

Humpty Dumpty is delicious right? :P

Mr.Goober said...

Joycelyn said...

wow....liu kou shui le...slurp.
for half-boiled eggs,i like to beat & mix the egg yolk together with egg white,then mix with soy sauce n a bit of pepper.
for half-fried eggs(mata kerbau),i will prefer to eat the egg white 1st then the yolk later.
i saw someone crack the half-boiled eggs into hot coffee or nescafe,and drink it...hmm..dont know how's its taste.

ah nel said...

eeee...ciken spem i no

Bernard said...

Half-boiled egg.. my staple breakfast for a long long time. Haha. Until i got to "oats" age.

Taken plain... stirred, not shaken. Or smothered on toast.

Chen said...

half boiled egg into coffee?

Another new way of eating half boiled egg that I found out today is mixing it together with roti canai & the gravy :D I haven't try it out yet...

ah nel,
wah... siapa suruh u makan ciken spem woh? :D
Ciken egg tok lah, nok ciken spem.. Ini dua tarak sama :D

nowadays my staple breakfast (late breakfast) is a mug of cereal drinks :)

Wow, such a nice yolk. I love to eat half-boiled eggs with pepper and little bit of dark/light soy sauce ( a drop or 2). I would eat the egg yolk first, without smashing or any mixing, I just love eating the whole watery yolk. It's so yummy. If cook sunny side up, I will not want to have the yolk fully cook. I love it half cook, the watery yolk. After I finish the yolk, I will 'drink' the white. Normally I will eat two eggs at a go.

When I was a child, my mother used to put an egg into milo. It's nice too. Sometimes, I even put an egg into instant oats and it taste so nice. I am salivating now, your picture of the eggs are so well taken, and it is just right.... you know, sometime we might have 'accident', either it is too cooked or the whites are not cooked, get what I mean? : )

mistipurple said...

i eat cakes, french toasts, everything that contains eggs. but generally i have poor health lah.
:( quite hard to avoid eggs contents stuff. don't know if bad health related to eggs. anyway, life goes on lah. can move cannot complain oredy. hugs kind Loctor!

Chen said...

hehe, so u mixed up the whole thing and didn't save the best (the yolk) for the last :P

I love the watery yolk too ;) I cooked the half boiled egg using a yellow coloured plastic thingy specially for cooking half boiled eggs (dunno what is it called). It is available in the market for more than 2 decades..

All I have to do is to pour the boiling hot water into that specific container and filled it up to the level marked (depending on how many eggs u put inside - max 4 eggs). Cover the lid and wait for the water to drip down via the sieve-like minute hole at the bottom into another holding container. The egg is ready to be served when the water has dripped dry into the other container. The half boiled eggs prepared till way is 100% perfect. It never failed. Simple & Easy ;)

poor health ah?
then misti must take care yourself more lah.. shouldn't sleep so late every night leh.. :)
hugs poor misti
