Noodles and Ioyces

The kids made it back to preschool today, and I finally catch a glimpse of my regular routine back. Although I am far from baking CNY bakes at the moment as there's a lot of chores to catch up before that. Made char-siew and prawn noodles using the skinny noodles typically used for wanton noodles for lunch.This bring back memories of a really delicious meeting with Ioyces in Singapore on our first meeting when she brought me to her parents wonderful wonton noodle stall and treated me to a mega-loaded wonton mee dish filled with fragrant braised shitake mushrooms, sumptious two kinds of wontons that were fried and cooked in broth, shredded white chicken, tasty chicken feet (yeah, I tried my first one in a very long time), crunchy fresh veggies that were cooked perfect, and some wonderful conversations amidst my kids calling for mommy. I just loved that wonton noodle stall at Bukit Batok. It's called Eng Kee Noodle House.She also came by regularly to spend time with us, and I'm truly honored to have found a wonderful blogger friend who brought me donuts, korean dvds and helped me find my first thermal pot. She even brought me her mom's wonderful chili sauce which exploded on the plane on the way back. LOL! And not forgetting that she even brought me over to see my idol and mentor, Aunty Yochana! Yes, I was a happy kid that day!

Oh, I'm interested in a thermal pot too. How did you carry that back? I don't know how to pack one you know. :P

Hi Singairishgirl,
Haha! I had to get my blogging momentum back!

Hey C,
Very easy. Bring a big hardshell, and try to squeeze it inside like I did. Haha!
