Fried Rice With Corned Beef [College Memory / Y3K Recipes Issue No. 65]

Fried rice with corned beef

I was once an international student in a college, with another three international students from Philippine and Taiwan in my class. However, my class were made up of local students with multicultural backgrounds. In my class, we had Chinese, Chinese-Malaysian, Taiwanese, Philippians, Germans, Vietnamese, Korean, Lebanese, Arabian, and etc. During which, I enjoyed the lunch breaks most. We liked to eat from others lunch-box, lunch breaks often turned into small gatherings with food and laughter. 
This fried rice is something I learned from "gathering", one of the Filipina classmates often brought a big container of corned beef rice to share with us. It was the mixture of steamed rice with corned beef, and sometimes with canned sweet corn added. No real cooking involved, but heated up in the microwave instead.

I am making my life complicated turned a simple three ingredients recipe into this fried-rice. I hope rice lovers will like it, enjoy!

Ingredients (2-3 servings):
2 bowls  (heap) cooked rice
