Sesame oil, Eggs, Ginger and Pork Soup - A Confinement Dish

My wife loves this soup which she used to take during her confinement period. We still cook this dish occasionally to eat with rice. The soup has very strong sesame oil aroma and sweet flavours from the pork. I normally use lean pork but those with a little fat would make the soup taste better.
It is good to drink this soup, especially during rainy days when you need some hot soup to perk yourself up!

Here is my recipe for Sesame Oil, Eggs, Ginger and Pork Confinement Soup.

Ingredients
Lean pork or pork belly, 100 gms, cut into bite sizes
Eggs, 2 pcs
Sesame oil, 1 tablespoon
Light Soya sauce, 3 tablespoons
Salt to taste
Celery for granishing
Garlic, 3 cloves, chopped finely
Ginger, 2"x1", cut into strips

Fry eggs, sunny side up and put aside. Add some vegetable oil in wok. Saute ginger and  garlic until golden brown. Pour in the sesame oil. Add lean pork and stir fry for a short while (Opps, missed this step, thank you Yvonne for highlighting it to me). Add aound 2 to 3 rice bowl of water. Put in the light soya sauce and salt. bring to boil. Pour the soup on the sunny side up eggs. Garnish with celery before serving.
