n.— «My pot of day-old rice—fried with cashew nuts, green peas, diced ham, sliced mushrooms, and scrambled egg—has residual value, I am sure. It can be served to a street child who sniffs “rugby” (local term for contact cement, associated with the brand) to plug the hole of hunger in his stomach.» —“Fried rice promises” by Ober Khok Sun Star (Cebu, Philippines) July 28, 2007.
