Bitter gourd- Fried bitter gourd with egg

This is one of my step mom's favorite dish. Can still remember how happy she was when i cooked this dish.
2 to 3 bitter gourd (about 300g, sliced)
2 eggs (beat)/ salted eggs (blended)
2 cloves garlic (diced)
1 tbsp sugar
1 tbsp light soy sauce
1 tsp pepper
1 tsp salt
1 tsp dried chili flakes

Preparation Methods:

Heat bout 2 tbsp of oil and fry garlic till browned. Add bitter gourd, sugar and soy sauce. Fry till bitter gourd is a bit soft (ca 3 minutes) and add pinch of salt and pepper to beaten egg before adding it to the wok. Leave the egg for few minutes before flipping it. Add salt, pepper and chili flakes. Serve when egg is cooked.

p/s To reduce the bitterness of the bitter gourd, soak sliced bitter gourd in salt water for half and hour before cooking.
