Movie Review - Mummy 3: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor

This Mummy wants Mo' Money
Movie Title
Mummy 3: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor
Year
2008
Category (Current/Recent/ Blast from the Past)
Current
Genre
Action / Fantasy

Story
Rick (Brendan Fraser) & Evelyn O’Connell’s (Maria Bello) son, Alex (Luke Ford), is all grown up now and is now a full-fledged archeologist in his own right. He uncovers the Dragon Emperor’s (Emperor Han played by Jet Li) tomb in China. Rick (Brendan Fraser) & Evelyn O’Connell have been eventually asked to deliver a priceless artifact to China (that is somehow, surprise!, linked to the Dragon Emperor). We learn from the start of the movie that the ruthless Dragon Emperor was betrayed by his loyal General Ming (Russell Wong) who fell for the witch woman, Zi Juan (Michelle Yeoh) who was tasked to find the elixir of eternal life for the emperor. But of course, the emperor ends up being a cursed mummy waiting to be revived centuries later to cause mayhem for the O’Connells.

Acting
Do not expect award winning performances here although the cast all turn in competent work.

Overall
It’s basically the same movie as the previous 2 but with an Oriental setting, which I thought was kind of interesting. However, they could have included more of Chinese mythology into it. Maria Bello has replaced Rachel Wiesz in this installment. Anyway, I like Bello better. I was also very glad to see Isabella Leong in a Hollywood movie.

Place logic and physics in an air-tight bag before watching the movie ‘cos if not, you wouldn’t be able to enjoy it. Not a bad fun watch.

Comic Review - Fantastic Four 44-47

Title/Storyline:
Fantastic Four
Publish Date/Year:
1965
Creative Team:
Stan Lee, Jack Kirby
Issue (s):
44-47
Publisher:
Marvel

StoryThis storyline introduces the Inhumans (one of my favorite group of characters I never get tired of, unlike a certain mutant team we know) to the Marvel universe (with the exception of Medusa, who appeared earlier as a member of the Frightful Four in FF36). The story doesn’t end here but continues into FF48 where my favorite character makes his debut - the Silver Surfer (and where Norrin Radd appears, can the dreaded world-devourer Galactus be far behind?).

As with any other classic comics from the era, when 2 different superhero groups meet for the first time, there is a misunderstanding and a battle between them ensues. This is no different. The FF first tackles Gorgon before they face off with the entire Inhuman Royal Family.

Crystal (whom Johnny falls hard for during this era)
Lockjaw (as we learn much later, he is actually not a dog but an inhuman Royal Member)
Karnak
Triton
Black Bolt (in the final panel of FF45)
The Seeker (An Inhuman commissioned to bring the Inhumans who had left the Great Refuge back to it)
Maximus (Black Bolt’s power-mad brother)

Dragon Man is thrown into the mix for added mayhem.

Art
This is classic/vintage Kirby. It will seem dated because these were from 1965! You can appreciate the brilliance of Kirby’s work because as you flip thru the pages, you will see how some of the great artists today got their artistic influence.

The art is not picture perfect like Alex Ross or John Cassaday’s or super sexy like Jim Lee or J. Scott Campbell’s, but it exudes a charm and the power it conveys, given the limitations of the medium at that time.

Additional Comments
FF 45 also introduces the FF Jet Cycle for the 1st time. The FF had no choice but to use the Jet Cycle (which Reed had to quickly complete as it was still in development when Gorgon arrived) because Gorgon had taken the FF’s Copter and destroyed all of the FF’s flying vehicles – the Pogo Plane and Fantasticar, to prevent them from following him while he pursues Medusa and Johhny.

This story leads directly into 1 of comicdom's most legendary storylines in FF 48 - The Coming of Galactus!

Movie Review - Space Chimps

Movie Title
Space Chimps
Year
2008
Category (Current/Recent/ Blast from the Past)
Current
Genre
Animation

Story
A space probe is lost – seemingly sucked by a wormhole to another universe. The space agency wants to retrieve the probe but are afraid to send humans, hence the Space Chimps. …Aaaand, because the trained space chimps are too nerdy to be the poster boys for the Agency, hence they need a chimp that’s hip & cool. That’s how Ham III (grandson of the first chimp astronaut, Ham I) come into the picture.

So, predictably, they go and successfully retrieve the probe. And along they way, save an alien civilization.

Acting
Pretty mediocre stuff. The characters are voiced by virtual unknowns (to me at least) except for Stanley Tucci who provides the voice for the Senator.

The animation is competent but very dull. Character design also leave a lot to be desired (meaning to say, if there were a toy line for them, they wouldn’t be flying off the shelves OR do you see Mc Donald’s having their pictures for their Happy Meal?)

There is 1 cute character that stood out tho’ Kilowatt – a high pitched alien whose giant-sized head lights up whenever she’s afraid.

Overall
Don’t bother (unless it’s for the young ones)

Movie Review - Butterfly on a Wheel

Movie Title
Butterfly on a Wheel
Year
2007
Category (Current/Recent/ Blast from the Past)
Blast from the Past
Genre
Suspense Thriller

Story
A seemingly perfect family life is turned into a living hell one day when they are threatened by a kidnapper, Tom Ryan (Pierce Brosnan) who has total and complete control over the kidnapped child’s parents - Abby Randall (Maria Bello) & Neil Randall (Gerard Butler). The whole movie revolves around how they complete the “assignments” given to them by Ryan, who is motivated by revenge. However, the viewers are kept in the dark until the very end of the movie to understand the true motivation behind Ryan’s actions.

Acting
Pretty good acting from all the leads. Thru’ out the movie, there was not once that I felt bored or that their acting was unnatural (as I often do when I watch most HK or Taiwanese films).

I couldn’t recognize Butler without his facial hair & with his clothes on because I will always think of 300 (which I think is one heck of a fine action flick) when I see the name Gerard Butler. He looks totally different here.

Overall
This is one heck of a thrill ride in the same vein as Johnny Depp’s Nick of Time from some years back. You keep rooting for the Randalls at every peril they encounter.

It’s also refreshing to see Pierce Brosnan play a baddie and seeing Gerard Butler fully clothed and not killing somebody with his sword. Very good movie, with a moral to the story even!

By the way, all the 3 lead actors' names begin with the letter "B"

Give it a go. I recommend it.

Food Review - Kuchai Yong Tau Foo

Name
Kuchai Yong Tau Foo (B’Fast/Lunch only)
I still have not found a good YTF stall that opens at night. If you know of one (or more), do let me know!
Address
Corner of Jalan 2/116B, Kuchai Entrepreneurs’ Park
Food
Yong Tau Foo/Jue Cheong Fun
Location
Kuchai

Getting there
You may come from any direction. Just drive toward the Kuchai Entrepreneurs’ Park from the Jalan Kuchai Lama Traffic Light Junction. After the junction, head straight where you will see lots of shop lots on both sides, and on the 2nd left turning, turn left there. There’s a row of shop lots on your left. This place is right at the left corner at the end of the road (and corner of a T-Junction).
Parking
Parking is a little haphazard as is generally so for the entire Kuchai Entrepreneurs’ Park but with a little patience, you will eventually find a spot within walking distance.

Service
Well, this is a typical Chinese-Styled coffee shop, so there is no service per se. You go to the stall you fancy and order directly from them.

The stall is divided into 2 sections:
- one for the Jue Cheong Fun (JCF)
- one for the Yong Tau Foo (where you can pick the variety and pieces you want)
The food delivery if quick and fuss-free.

Ambience
This place honestly needs a little clean up. Not a place that would attract diners based on appearance or cleanliness.
Taste
This stall serves pretty good YTF. One of the better ones I would say. The JCF is also good. The noodles are pretty smooth. The crunchy fried shrimp garnish on top of the JCF is really the good stuff that I can’t get enough of.

Presentation
Pretty standard. Dry items come dry and wet items come with the soup.
Variety
The standard YTF items incl: - YTF
- Jau YTF (Fried Tofu)
- Jau Fujok (Fried Bean curd skin)
- Jau Sui-gow (Fried Sui-gow)
- Yong Kok Tow (Ladies’ Fingers)
- Ai Gua (Brinjal)
- Lat Jiu (Chillies)
- Yue Dan (Fish Balls)
- Fu Gua (Bittergourd)
- Jue Pei (Pork Skin – This item is not quite standard and is personally one of my favorite items. This stall’s variety stuffs the Jue Pei with generous portions of fish paste and then lightly fried. LOVE THIS)

I order a plate of Jue Cheong Fun to round off the meal. There are 2 types of Jue Cheong Fun:
- Standard sweet and chili sauce
- Light curry soup

Value for Money
It’s RM0.90/pc. Higher than most YTF stalls. However, the pieces are larger than the ones you get at Ampang. So, a little compromise there.

It’s pretty decent for what would be considered a fairly healthy meal but it still loses out (but only by the skin of the teeth) to my all-time favorite YTF stall at Petaling Street.

Overall
The fact that the stall also sells Jue Cheong Fun makes it a solid combo stall to visit & try.

Food Review - Sg Besi Wan Tan Mee

NameSg Besi Wan Tan Mee (Dinner/Supper Only)
Food
Wan Tan Mee
Location
Along KL-Seremban Highway

Getting there
If you are on the KL-Seremban Highway headed south from the city, then the stall is situated on your left, about 800m after you pass the Loke Yew roundabout. The landmark to look out for is the BHP Petrol Station on your left just before the stall.

If you on the KL-Seremban Highway and are coming from the south towards KL, then you would need to make a U-turn to the right (after you pass the old military airport on your left). Head towards Jalan Chan Sow Lin. You may either turn in at Jalan 2 or Jalan 3 as the stall is between Jalan 2 & Jalan 3.

The stall is “co-located” at the side of a Car Accessory shop. So it’s not hard to locate.
ParkingParking is a bit of a challenge depending on which way you are coming from.
You may try your luck right at the stall front. The parking bays are very limited (probably may accommodate 6 cars). There are several more parking bays at the side of the stall but you would need to slow down and make a left turn right before the stall.
I usually park at Jalan 3 (as by then the metal works shops would be closed) and walk over.

ServiceService is fast and hassle free. As they have quite an extensive menu, the order takers would usually try to cross sell other menu items to diners.

Ambience
Typical of eateries of this type, it’s clean & bright enough for a comfortable dining experience. Plastic tables and chairs with the condiments and utensils on the tables.
TasteWhat can I say?
I have been eating here for almost 10 years. I love this place and the taste of the food. The noodles are firm and springy and the soy sauce that accompanies the noodles is just perfect (as I always take it dry).

I always add a generous dollop of the “good stuff” from the condiments. I believe it is fried dried shrimp, shallots and sambal. The other ingredient is of course the pickled green chili in soy sauce.
PresentationPresentation’s good as they always come in clean plates and the way the food is arranged on the plates just invites you to dig in.
VarietyThey have many varieties of Wan Tan Mee including:
- Jar Yuk
- Char Siew Wan Tan
- Curry San Jue Yuk
- Mushroom & Chicken Feet

There are other side order items including:
- Sui Gow
- Yong Tau Foo
- Yow Choy
- Jue Geok Choe

There is also a Rojak stall set up right in the corner as you approach the Wan Tan Mee stall.

Value for MoneyThis place offers good value for the taste and presentation. I love eating here and have no qualms eating here several times a week.

OverallGood value and quick service. Gibe it a try and let me know if you agree.

Food Review - Tim Kee (Taman Connaught) Chicken Rice


NameTim Kee (Taman Connaught) Chicken Rice
Food
Chicken Rice and Side Dishes
Location
Behind the Main Jalan Connaught, on Jalan Ahliman, facing the school.

View Larger Map
Getting there
If you are coming from Cheras/KL, then the shop will be on your right when you are on Jalan Connaught.

If you are coming from PJ/Mid Valley, then after the toll, the shop will be on your left when you arrive on Jalan Connaught.

Either way, make your way to the shop-lots behind the ones facing the main road (ie: this would be facing the housing area). Sandwiched between 2 traditional Chinese coffee shops at both corners, you will be able to locate this place fairly easily.

Parking
Parking is a breeze if you don’t mind walking a few more steps. This is because most diners would want to park directly or very near to the front of the shop along the shop-front parking. The parking there are limited and you will lonely get one if you are lucky.

As the surrounding areas are a residential area and a school, you would be able to easily get parking there on weekends.

Service
Service is quick and no fuss. One unique feature of this eatery is that many of the staff members are Indian although this is obviously a Chinese owned shop. These guys speak fluent Cantonese. I’m sure that’s quite an experience on its own already.

Ambience
The place is brightly lit, hence it looks much cleaner than other shops of the same/similar category.

Taste
There are different varieties of chicken. We have not tried the roasted chicken but both the steamed Regular Chicken & Kampung Chicken varieties are good enough to warrant another visit.

Presentation
The chicken is presented in a separate plate garnished with cucumber slices and cut spring onions. Very tantalizing.

The condiments make all the difference as they have not only the standard soy and chili sauce, but also the ground ginger and thick soy sauce. I personally like to add some thick soy sauce on my rice for some added oomph.
Variety
- There are the standard Roast Pork (Siew Yoke) & Char Siew
- Chicken comes in the standard varieties
o Steamed – Regular
o Steamed – Kampung Chicken
o Roasted
- There are a whole bunch of side dishes including Yong Tau Foo, and vege dishes, etc.
Value for Money
High up there on value. They do not skimp on anything. The chicken, rice portions, condiments (free flow - typical of eateries of this nature) are all very generously apportioned to the customers.

Overall
This is one of the best tasting and best value chicken rice places I have been to. I remember I found out about this place from a TV program that was finding the top 10 Chicken Rice places in Malaysia, this was 1 of them. I would definitely recommend this place if not for the food, then for the experience.

Movie Review - Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian


Movie Title
Chronicles of Narnia : Prince Caspian
Year
2008
Genre
Fantasy
Story
This is obviously the sequel to The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe. The Pevensie siblings – Peter (William Moseley), Susan (Anna Popplewell), Edward (Skandar Keynes) & Lucy (Georgie Henley) make a comeback. Lucy has visibly grown a little taller and cuter. Of course the movie wouldn’t be called Prince Caspian if they were not joined by new hottie His Royal Highness, Prince Caspian (Ben Barnes).
The Pevensie siblings are once again called upon to save Narnia. Altho’ when they were back in London, not time had passed since their last adventure but in Narnia, roughly 1,300 years had passed and Narnians no longer rule the land. Aslan, for some reason, has gone away and had not been seen for many years. Instead, it is now ruled by humans called Telmarines. Led by an evil Lord Miraz, who had schemed to take the Telmarine throne by any means. Thus, when Prince Caspian, the rightful heir to the throne learnt of a plot to his murder when Lord Miraz’s Queen finally gave him a son, Prince Caspian fled to the deep forests of Narnia. With Miraz’s soldiers in hot pursuit, it was there he used the Queen Susan's magic horn to summon the “Kings and Queens of old” (ie: the Pevensie siblings).

The movie is basically a battle between good and evil. The big battle between the Narnians and Telmarines happens at Beruna, the Narnians’ final stronghold. Fans of this genre will draw many parallels to the battles at Helm’s Deep & Minas Tirith in the Lord Of the Rings trilogy. However, the Narnians (fantasy creatures) make it visually different from those battles as the Orcs in LOTR are visibly humanoid while the Centaurs, Minotaurs, Griffins, battle-honed cheetahs and panthers make the Beruna battle visually more exciting.

SPOILERS AHEAD - The end was a little predictable. After all, it is a Disney Film. As in the first movie, Aslan comes to the rescue in the end and everything is restored until the next installment.

Acting
Well, the acting was adequate but the actors playing the Pevensie kids are getting better. Do not expect any award winning performances here. There are parts where I felt that both Caspian and Peter were a little stiff.

The creatures are very typical Disney/Pixar type animation. Highly detailed, very fluid but too much so to be real buts it’s definitely very good.

Overall
It’s a fun romp in the fantasy realm of Narnia. I personally prefer this franchise to the Harry Potter franchise (I know this is going to elicit a few rather passionate responses). I enjoyed seeing more depth to the characters and eventho the movie length was longer than 90 minutes, I did not feel that it was a long movie. I wanted to see more of the creatures and wished they had more screen time.

Movie Review - Tropic Thunder


Movie Title
Tropic Thunder
Year
2008
Category (Current/Recent/ Blast from the Past)
Current
Genre
(Action ??) Comedy

Story
It’s a bunch of actors playing supposed top notch actors, in their respective genres, who are supposed to be playing soldiers but end up doing a whole lot more than what they had planned or bargained for. The movie is a little predictable but this is still watch-able fare.

Acting
I can’t really say that there were no award winning performances in there (‘cos there was!). Anyway, nothing really different from the likes of Ben Stiller and Jack Black. However, Robert Downey Jr. is completely something else. In this movie, he plays an Aussie actor playing the part of an African American soldier. His performance here almost blew me away! At times, I really forgot that this was a white guy because he sounds blacker than the real black guy (Brandon T. Jackson)!

Overall
There’s an awful lots of expletives for a comedy but if you can overlook that, there are enough good bits in there to keep you interested.

Rating: 5/10
Additional Comments

You have to watch the beginning of the movie. It really took me by surprise. It was a series of ads that looked and felt like the real things (if you were in a US cinema, that is.). I really thought it was rather brilliant because it made me think, “Hmmm, I don’t recall reading about/watching this movie”

There are lots of cameos in the movie. You will see and recognize some of them while some will take you by surprise if you are like me (ie: I don’t research who the cast is and just watch the movies without much preconceived expectations). I was really surprised to finally recognize Tom Cruise (!) only about halfway thru’ the movie!

There was too much “gore” for me in the first few minutes of the movie for my liking.

It was kind of funny to see the bad guys, who are supposed to be Vietnamese, speak Chinese thru out the movie! Ben Stiller needs to do more homework (or is that part of the joke?)

Movie Review - Street Kings

Movie Title
Street Kings
Year
2008
Category (Current/Recent/ Blast from the Past)
Recent
Genre
Police Action

Story
An above average police flick with ample bits of LA realism thrown in for good measure (read: expletives and gun violence). However, there are elements here and there that are a little predictable.

Keanu Reeves plays Detective Tom Ludlow, part of a police team that takes out the city scum as judge, jury and executioner. He, however, usually does these activities alone. Backed by his boss, Captain Jack Wander (Forest Whitaker), who condones these activities as a necessary evil to protect the city. There are others in the force who disagrees with their methods. One particular case resulted in Captain James Biggs (Hugh Laurie) of Internal Affairs investigating Ludlow for one of the cases that resulted in the death of Ludlow’s ex-partner, incriminating Ludlow in the process.

Detective Paul Diskant (Chris Evans) ends up helping Ludlow with the case (ie: getting some payback to the KILLERS) and there are a few twists that keep the viewers guessing till the end.

Acting
Credible acting from the cast. Altho’ it felt a little odd seeing Keanu in the first few minutes of the movie because for me, when ever I see him, it always reminds me of the Matrix Trilogy (which by the way is the best Sci-Fi trilogy in the past decade). He does a credible job portraying a redemption-seeking Detective Ludlow.

It was also refreshing to see Chris Evans play a serious role (‘cos I have only seen him clowning around in Fantastic 4 I & II. Let’s not even mention Sunshine.)

Overall
Good cop flick but if you’re queasy with violent scenes or the language, this may not be exactly for you. I have watched quite a few very good cop flicks (like LA Confidential and HEAT) and that’s the sole reason I’m not giving it a very high score.

Rating: 6/10

Food Review - Ampang Foong Foong Yong Tau Foo

Name
Ampang Foong Foong Yong Tau Foo (Lunch only)

Food
Yong Tau Foo

Location
Ampang, KL.

Getting there
I usually go there from Jalan Ampang towards Ampang Hulu (away from KLCC). At the Spectrum traffic light junction (just before Taman Kosas on the left), make a right turn. Go right to the end of the road where there is another traffic light junction, turn right. The shop is the 3rd consecutive Yong Tau Foo shop located side-by-side on the left.

ParkingParking can be a bit of a challenge as diners need to find a spot on their own. Altho’ there are a few parking spots right in front of the shop, you’d be pretty lucky to be able to get a spot there. There are quite a number of parking spots in front of other shops in the vicinity. All of these are guarded by their respective “parking attendants”.

ServiceThis place is almost like Chinese-styled self-service fast-food as you have to place the orders on your own at the front counter where your orders are then “broadcast” to the kitchen via an in-house mike (this is a feature quite unique to this place). Hence, you need to remember your table number before you order. Veterans also know what their orders would be before placing the orders at the counter. This is because the pace is frenetic and you do not want to be the one holding up the order line when others are waiting impatiently behind you.

Ambience
Typical for eateries of this nature – pretty no-frills. It’s clean enough but don’t expect restaurant-style ambience.

TasteFor me, this is one of the YTF places in KL that is considered “up there” among the best. The pieces are smaller than my all time favorite YTF stall (at KL Chinatown). However, this place makes up for it with the variety it offers.

The Juk Jey (sugarcane) drink is also pretty good. Have to try it.

PresentationPresentation is typical YTF, ie: fried ones (fujok* & jow sui-gow) are kept separate from the wet ones. Some like the sui-gow, come with soup in a bowl with some choy sum as garnish.

* please see Variety section for translations

VarietyThe standard items incl:
- YTF
- Jau YTF (Fried Tofu)
- Jau Fujok (Fried Bean curd skin)
- Sui-gow (Chinese meat dumpling in soup – but some may call them “water-dogs” loosely based on Cantonese pronunciation )
- Jau Sui-gow (Fried Sui-gow)
- Yong Kok Tow (Ladies’ Fingers)
- Ai Gua (Brinjal)
- Lat Jiu (Chillies)
- Yue Dan (Fish Balls)
- Fu Gua (Bittergourd)

I usually order rice to round off the meal but some prefer to just go for the YTF.

Value for MoneyIt’s RM0.80/pc now. There was a time when this place charges slightly lower than the other places because the pieces here are smaller than some other places.

It’s pretty decent for what would be considered a fairly healthy meal.

OverallGood value and quick service. You won’t be disappointed.

Food Review - Steamed Fish Head - OKR Ah Wang

Name
Ah Wang Bak Kut Teh

Address
4 ½ Mile, Jalan Klang Lama, KL (013-2282288)

Food
Steamed Fish Head/Bak Kut Teh (Dinner only)

Location

Jalan Klang Lama/ Old Klang Road (OKR)

Getting there

It is located on the Old Klang Road (OKR) between the Taman Desa & Kuchai Lama junctions. If you are coming from the city towards PJ, you need to look out for the Kuchai Lama traffic light junction. Make a U-Turn there to get to the other side (ie: heading back towards Mid Valley). The stall is located just before the new highway running perpendicular to OKR.

Parking

Parking can be a bit of a challenge as diners need to find a spot on OKR itself. However, the good thing is that the stall owners know this and have appointed a “traffic controller” (complete with reflective gear) to help diners find empty parking spots when you turn on the car indicators as you approach. I have never had any trouble finding a spot.

Service

Service is considered fast as there is ample staff (locals) to attend to your seating and orders. In my experience, the food comes out rather fast. You may need to wait for approx. 10-15 minutes for the food to arrive at your table.

As usual, these kinds of stalls provide the small plastic basin with hot water for the utensils. They normally would bring the chopsticks and Chinese soup spoons. You may request for forks and spoons.

Payment is also rather quick & hassle-free.

Ambience

This is a typical no-frills Malaysian dining where the plastic tables & chairs are right next to the road and under the sky. About half of them are covered in case there’s rain.

On the cleanliness scale, it’s considered clean for stalls of this category.

There are a couple of TVs there as well to kill time while you wait (or eat).

Taste

We have only tried 2 varieties so far (eventho’ we have been there enough times to try all varieties). We have always gravitated back to the Ginger variety. It comes with generous portions of finely chopped ginger, parsley and spring onions on top of the fish head steamed just right. The sauce (well I’m not sure if that’s the right word) ALWAYS tastes just right.

Presentation
“Simple and fit for purpose” would best describe it. It comes on a stainless steel plate resting on a chaffing dish that helps keep the fish dish hot to the end.

Variety

There are a few varieties for the steamed fish heads and they come in 3 sizes (L/M/S):
- Ginger (Giong Yung)
- Soy Sauce (Si Jub)
- Plain Steam (Ching Jing)
- Assam

We usually go for the Ginger variety (S) and rice.

Other items include:
- Bak Kut Teh (of course)
- Pork Leg Vinergar (Jue Geok Cho)
- Pig Trotters (Loe Jue Geok)
- Peppered Pork Tripe Soup (Wu Jiu Jue Toe Tong)

Value for Money

This place is high on value for money. 1 order of the fish head (Small) plus rice is enough for 2 of us. If you fancy, there are other side orders like tofu and vege dishes but we usually struggle to finish with just the fish and rice alone.

Overall

If you’re looking for a quick and simple healthy meal that not only tastes good but is virtually cholesterol & oil free, this is it. Try it and let me know if you agree.
