Friend (12) – 3P Porridge / 朋友(12)- 3P 粥

Posted on Updated on

Able to leave the hustle and bustle aside, find a quiet corner, have a bowl of light porridge and enjoy the quiet and elegant moment, what else do we ask for in life.
This bowl of 3P porridge; peaceful, plain and pleasant.
A bowl of humble porridge, not known in the rack, there is no luxury embellishment, upscale environment, no gourmet reviews.  With a look pale and weak, quietly placed in front of me, just to fill up my stomach.
Although it has no load, but he still stick to his position as a tummy guardian.
This 3P sits quietly before us, can’t weigh it with a set of scale, catch no sight with our eyes, let alone into the upper crust.
As Beauty is in the Eyes of the Beholder, this 3P is a blessing, as it is different from the others.

    Sydney, it looks soothing- what we in the US would call “comfort food.” What is it made of? Is it a Singaporean dish?

      Hi Cathy, it is indeed a vegetarian ‘comfort food” offered free by a local temple here. I won’t regard it as a Singaporean dish as the ingredients are easily accessible everywhere…various mushrooms, gingko nuts, peanuts, broad beans, red beans and tofu. Try it, it’s yummy and healthy!Thanks for sharing the post with me !

    Most people think ancient Romans ate quite lavishly. Except for the very rich, corn meal porridge(polenta) was the dietary staple.
