Instant glutinous rice from Taiwan

Found another thing that I can cook instantly and satisfy my Asian- food-lunch-craving-without-cooking-up-a-storm taste buds. I saw this packet at the Asian store the last time and decided that I would give it a try. How difficult could it be if all I had to do was to put the packet in boiling water for 4 minutes. Yup! So there I tried it and BOY, was I blown away! The instant food you can have these days! It tasted just like glutinous rice from the Rice dumplings and there was even mushrooms and various authentic ingredients inside. So so yummy! Yah, just so you know what I eat on a daily basis. Had a conversation class today and can you imagine, my class and I were talking about nothing else but food for 1.5 hours! Beat that! So fun! Hahha, I think I can single-handedly Singaporeanize the Germans here! I even thought of organising social club activities (in which I get paid), to bring people to various restaurants, try out the food, talk and chit-chat! hahah, now if only I can convince my manager about it!

Glutinous rice? Hmmm, is that a bad translation or just a bad name?

Hi Pris,

I had the same craving for glutinous rice after trying to resist it for months (watching my diet). I bought a "Lo Mai Kai" yesterday from Ho Kee Pao store opposite my place for breakfast - it was delicious. Hope yr dad is not reading this.

Hey Archie. Yes! That´s the name actually. Why? What does it remind you of? Its basically sticky, thick rice that tastes REALLY yummy! Ok, taste is subjective, but really....its delicious!

Hey Grace! Oh is glutinous rice so fattening? I think it doesn´t hurt to have your cravings as long as its in the right proportion, isn´t it? Oh boy, is my dad like watching your diet too? Lo Mai Kai is SO yummy! We don´t have fresh glutinous rice here, must make ourselves...too much work....
