Last two days went to SS2, Petaling Jaya wet market with Judy.
We found a  small lorry selling his own grown vegetables, fruits,
sweet potatoes and yams. Judy was so happy to see "the little
abacus" that were hanging at one of the corner of the lorry. I was
wondering what was that that can make her so happy.  She told
me that those little abacus was one of the Hakka dish and she has
been looking for them for quite a long time, The little abacus is
made with a mixture of glutinous  rice flour and yam. Judy bought
two packets of them,some bean sprouts, minced meat, Chinese
chives. dried prawns and ready to cook for lunch.

The ingredients
300 g little abacus
150 g minced meat
50 g dried prawns- washed and drained
150 bean sprouts - washed and drained
150 g Chinese chives (kow choy) washed and cut into 2 inches long
2 red chillies- sliced
3 pips garlic- chopped
1 tsp light soy sauce
1 tbs oyster sauce
1/2 tsp sesame oil
dash of pepper
1/2 tsp corn flour
3 tbsp cooking oil

Seasoned the minced meat with sesame oil, light soy sauce and
corn flour, leave a side for later use.
Heat up the cooking oil, fry the dried prawns till fragrant, add in
chopped garlics and fry for a while.  Put in the seasoned meat
and continue frying . Pour in the bean sprouts, kow choy and
chillies, mix well. Lastly add in the main ingredient, the little
