To add sweetness to the papaya soup, I also ordered Sweet Corn ( 玉米 ) from PurelyFresh Online Grocery Store. You don't have to add the entire corn if you have a small papaya or it will be overpowering. With Corn added, the soup is packed with vitamins as it also has anti-oxidant benefits that helps protect our body from cancer and heart disease.

    I watch Masterchef Asia regularly. Very good reality cookery show. I thought you might participate as a judge :) The episode on which they served food for commuters at Changi was awesome !
    Pregnant women here are afraid to take papaya. In the first trimester it may trigger abortion, that is what the popular belief here. However, ripe papaya is supposed to be safe.
    Happy Chinese new year wishes in advance :)

    1. MasterChef in Changi Airport? That's so cool, Rajiv! I love Changi as they always have very interesting events going on.

      It's really nice to learn about another country's culture & beliefs. Chinese often use green papaya & cook with fish for breastfeeding moms. Seems it encourages production of milk.
