Chow Mein

Today i came up with "MY" own recipe of chow mein. It is a lot more delicious and delectable than before. As for the recipe that i posted earlier, i will not go into detail of what happened with it, believe me, u dont want to know, i'll just tell you that I came across a very unworthy and a selfish person, she called me names and insulted me, making me realize what a selfish and a bitter person she is at the core with all the sugar coating on the outside. It was sad. Anyways, lets not dwell on that, we all come across such people in life, right ?

So here goes,

Chicken : 1 breast fillet, cut in strips
Black pepper : 1/2 tsp
Salt : to taste

Garlic : 3 large cloves crushed

(For the noodles)
Egg noodles : 1 packet
Capsicum : 1 large sliced or 2 medium
Cabbage : 1 small
Carrots : 2
Spring onions : 3-4
Salt : to taste
Black pepper : 1/4 tsp
Chinese salt : 1/2 tsp
Yea we eat "A LOT" of ketchup :D
