In a bowl, marinate the shrimp with the chicken bouillon powder for at least 5 minutes. Set aside.
In a large bowl, combine the beaten eggs with the day-old rice. Mix thoroughly by hand or using mixer until all the rice is coated.
Heat up a large non-stick pan on high heat and add the cooking spray. Add the shrimp in one even layer or in batches if it cannot fit. Cook for 2-3 minutes on a cooktop or until golden and flip to cook the other side for another 1-2 minutes. Set aside and reserve.
Add some more cooking spray to the pan and add in the ginger and garlic. Cook for 30 seconds until fragrant and add in the egg rice mixture.
Cook the rice for 5-8 minutes stirring constantly to ensure all the egg and rice cooks and separates.
Turn down the heat to medium and add back the shrimp along with the dark and light soy sauce along with cooked vegetables. Stir everything together until incorporated.
Turn off the heat and add ¾ of the chopped green onions, mix to incorporate.
Garnish with the remaining green onions and enjoy.
