Swooned over bee hoon


I experimented with making fried bee hoon the other night for dinner since we have all the ingredients needed to make it as authentic as possible. I used some pak choi, dried mushrooms (from home!), red pepper, shredded carrot and strips of fried egg on top. It turned out not too bad although I was disappointed not to be able to recreate that familiar taste of home. Could it be the missing yew cang (fried shallots) or sliced chilli or fishcake or tau gay? I don’t know… There is just something so comforting about stuffing my face with economy bee hoon, vegetarian bee hoon, or any bee hoon! I miss real food.

    also, we were choosing between giving you a gorgeous drama bouquet of red roses and this elegant pot of white orchid. looking at your pictures, i’m so glad that we decided to go for the one that’s long-lasting and significant of home. and it looks so perfect on the fireplace mantel! ok i should stop, this is turning into a letter. say hi to R! missing you lor..
