Baby prefers quail’s eggs over chicken eggs. She calls them baby eggs and is intrigued that the eggs are so tiny and cute. I feed her with eggs everyday so that this petite girl is pumped up with enough protein. This girl’s waist is so tiny that most of her pants often drop off her waist and she’s wearing clothes meant for much younger girls! On some days, I give her free-range chicken eggs and on other days she gets to eat quail’s eggs. She likes her eggs with loads of butter or a dash of organic soy sauce. For me, I love quail’s eggs in tong sui or in skewers from those ‘loke loke’ vans 😀
She loves shelling the eggs too…
