Chives Omelette (韭菜煎蛋)

I seldom get to eat this dish cos there is old saying that too much chives will make your legs weak but I think there is no basis to this. I bought a bunch of chives cos there is some wanton skins I am thinking of using up but I realized it’s a bit too much for the amount of minced meat I have on hand so I used half for chives omelette instead.
