Tym looks for bright spots in our Darkest Hour of the Great Singapore Egg Shortage. In moments like these, I am glad I am not an egg fan (the yolk makes me gag, so only omelettes for me).
-Wahj got laughed at point-blank when he tried to order egg prata at Jalan Kayu a few weeks ago.
-We had olua (oyster omelette) a couple of weeks ago and the egg portion was so measly that the oysters were readily visible for a change.
-I squealed with delight earlier this week when the Malay food stall in the work cafeteria had hard-boiled eggs drenched in chilli, and waved my finger at them excitedly till the bemused stallholder scooped one into my packet of food.
-umami notes the tacky behaviour of a young couple at a local buffet who shamelessly ate their way through 16 eggs (among other food) last week.
