Put water (should be 1 inch above eggs) in a saucepan and bring the water to boil on medium heat.
Once boiling, take out the eggs from the refrigerator and gently put the eggs in the boiling water using a slotted spoon.
Reduce the heat to a simmer and cook the eggs for 6.5 to 7 minutes. If you want your egg yolk to be in the center, gently rotate the eggs with chopsticks once in a while for the first 3 minutes so the egg yolk will be in the center.
When it's done, drain the water and chill the eggs in iced water for 3 minutes. Gently peel the egg shell. Cut the eggs in half with a sharp knife or fish string.
The cooking time may vary depends on the size of eggs and the starting temperature of the egg.
