Last night, I decided to try a different way of cooking asparagus.
1. Asparagus
2. Red Bell Pepper
3. Enoki Mushroom 
4. Black Fungus 
According to the health information in my reference book, eating such combination protects our eyes as well as lower our body fats. Asparagus is consider a mild cooling food and is beneficial to our liver, prevent heart problems and cancer.
Preparation is fairly easy. Blanch the asparagus lightly first.  Drop the red bell pepper, enoki mushroom and black fungus into a heated wok with a bit of oil, and do a quick stir fry.  Add one teaspoon each of sesame oil, knorr chicken stock powder, rice wine and sprinkle a bit of salt, then add the blanched asparagus, make a quick stir fry before serving. 

How's that?  The colours of the dish makes me hungry. And the taste? Just perfect! 
I also fried some eggs with yellow onions to go with this dish.  I learnt that eating eggs with black fungus actually helps to strengthen our bones and teeth.  Asparagus with eggs also bring a rosy glow to our skin.  Those with joint pain can try eating asparagus with crab meat cos it is said to reduce the pain.  However, take care not to eat asparagus with bananas, as it will irriate our stomach and cause discomfort. 
I told hubby I'm happy to prepare tasty home-cooked meals for him.  He was all smiles.
