There is no fire like passion, No crime like hatred, No sorrow like separation, No sickness like hunger, And no joy like the joy of freedom. Buddha Dhammapada.

The fragrance of sandalwood and rosebay, Does not travel far. But the fragrance of virtue, Rises to the heavens. Buddha Dhammapada.

It's fast and easy, take only 10minutes to be done, what you need to have is:

Recipe for One-Two persons:
Vegetable: 1 medium size green/red/yellow Capsicum (in the pic it's a bit big as I could not find medium size, Cambodians like to use green capsicum than red or yellow), 1 green Zucchini, 1 Carrot, 1 Onion and 3 cloves of Garlic.

2. Heat up frying pan then pure oil in, when the oil is hot put chopped garlic into the oil, fry until it gives good smell then put all the sliced vegetables in. Stir it well together and cover for 5 minutes.

3. Open the cover, then put oyster sauce, soy sauce, salt and sugar in, and mix it up. Stir it for 2 minutes then taste it, if the taste not reach your favorite yet, add extra salt or sugar up to your need.
