Roast duck fried rice



I cooked this for last night's dinner. I'd meant to go to the market in the morning but Alicia was sleepy and slept in so I couldn't make it to the market to buy groceries - hence this dish. I was thinking about what to cook given the circumstances and the available items in my kitchen when I suddenly had a craving for this fried rice. Besides, it gives me every excuse to buy the roast duck from the coffeeshop downstairs which sells really delish roast duck. :D

I would have added some other ingredients into the fried rice if not for the fact that they weren't present in my kitchen and the afternoon shower at my area meant that I really had to just learn to work with what I have. And so, here's my roast duck fried rice...

Incidentally, Alicia liked this dish... it's the first time she's agreed to eat fried rice!
