They say that if you want to start your day right, start it with a good breakfast. In this tropical paradise, a good breakfast would have to be a bowl of Hong Kong – style macaroni soup with ham.

Known as a recovery food for people with illness or hangover, it is also linked with childhood memories since majority of Asian mothers prepare this for their kids.

This soup is punctuated with strips of ham to give it a slightly salty flavor, a combination that works quite well with this dish. The lightness of the soup is a welcome break from those oily, cholesterol-laden foods that we usually serve on our tables.

Let the buttered toast and a cup of tea be the meal’s companion, and you’ll be in heaven.
