- Add pork belly strips, diced tofu, fried scallots, cabbage & white pepper
- When serving, add white pepper and fried scallots to your liking

Lesson 1: cooked porridge expands when soaked for a long time.

Lesson 2: buy a smaller pot.

Lesson 3: you dun call it "salt porridge" and still say salt is optional
