A typical Singapore breakfast would not be complete without soft-boiled egg.
Eat warm with a dash of white pepper powder and a drizzle of premium dark soy sauce. But a blogger friend suggested Maggi Seasoning instead of dark soy. Why not? :D

While our western brothers and sisters are having Continental or American breakfasts; a typical Singaporean breakfast (or afternoon tea) set would consists of a hot beverage, usually sweetened black coffee (kopi-O) or milk tea (teh C) with a plate of butter and kaya toasts and a side order of 2 soft boiled eggs.
Happy break fasting :)
