Pan Mee

Pan Mee (direct translation: plank noodles) is a kind of noodle where you use flour and water (instead of eggs) to make the dough. For the soup, which I cooked the noodles in, the ingredients are pretty simple: dried anchovies, ginger, salt, pepper and green leafy veges, preferably sauropus aka sweet leaf bush. I made this the other day and I loved it! It was so much fun making it because I didn't have all the tools at hand at that time to make the noodles and I had to use my creativity by pinching them into the desired shapes with my fingers..haha. Yes, it's a lot of work but at the end of the day, it's all worth it!

I didn't have any sauropus, I substituted it with choy sum.

Hand-made noodles, literally.

Sea Creatures

I was asked by someone (we call him BC) why do I mostly blog about food. In appreciation for the scrumptious seafood dinner he treated us to last night, this post is dedicated to address his comments.

I love sea creatures, especially prawns, crabs and fishes. I love them more when they are delivered to me on a dish. Here are some pictures of the lovely sea creatures in their not so natural habitat, taken at the restaurant we visited. ( Please excuse the poor quality of the pictures. They were taken during a spur-of-the-"Oh I think I should blog about this"-moment. )



Crab. There, the three quintessential seafood delight.

Thanks for the meal, BC!
