Heat 3 tablespoons of the oil in a large nonstick skillet. Add the onion, ginger and garlic. Sauté mixture until onion is translucent and garlic just starts to brown. Add rice. Stir, and spread rice mixture into a single layer inside the pan so rice can crisp.
Stir every 2 to 3 minutes, for a total of about 10 minutes.

Move rice mixture to one side of the pan. Add the remaining tablespoon of oil to the side of the pan without the rice.
When oil is hot, add beaten eggs. Stir to scramble and cook, about 2 minutes. Mix into the rice mixture.

Add the soy sauce, fish sauce and green onions. Remove from heat. Taste and adjust seasoning as desired.
