Cooking 101 is back! This time, I’ll be making popiah. Not tedious but it did
take longer because I was taking photographs. Bought all the necessary
ingredients from the market although it was kinda last minute. Here we go!

Which one should I take?
It took some time to prepare and cook the popiah but me and my
wife were pretty satisfied with the outcome. The size of the popiah was a
little too big. We should have sliced the lettuce instead of using one
whole piece. I also forgot to get some parsley for that fresh fragrant
aroma. Also, we cooked too much jicama; 1 jicama was more than enough.
Nevertheless, it was delicious!

Yosh! Itadakimasu!
