Tumis kailan cah cumi // Chinese brocolly with squid stir-fry

In my country they called this vegetable "kailan", do not know why they name it Chinese broccoli here, seems like many things came from China and name it after their country, anyway i love this new recipe, and the vibrant colour too... Basically i love all kind of veggies, only since I'm a teenager :) .

Try with chicken or shrimp next time, will be a s delicious as this one. Only problem i found with the squid is that i never clean or handle that thing before! so i just use my feeling how to clean and cut them, i also confused what is the different between calamari and squid, any idea?.
