Seafood and Petai Fried Rice

This plate of Petai Fried Rice was actually my hubby's lunch, I purposely cooked this for his lunch last week when he had his day off. It has been almost a month that I'm back to Florida. I told myself i will try to cook and prepare whatever i've eaten while I was in Malaysia for my darling husband and darling daughters, sounds fair, right! LOL
Usually i don't pack petai for my hubby to take to work. Whenever he see me cooking sambal petai, he will definitely say "oh don't gimme this for lunch". It is better not to eat this at work cause Petai will make bad breath and stinky urine, however it is a very high nutritious dish which I've mention before. I dump in a lot of Petai to fry this rice, since it is his day off  I want him to enjoy this as much as he can, he loves Petai. It's a one of a kind lunch, but yet delicious. I've just brought 2 big bottles of air freshener, I hope it can help.
